RE: [K12OSN] Mike--300PL



In the bios I have set the following settings for my 300pl's

Configuration/Setup Utility > Devices and I/O ports > Ethernet Setup >
                                Ethernet Support [Enabled]
                                 Network Boot      [DHCP]


Configuration/Setup Utility >Start Options > Startup Sequence > First Startup Device [Network]


Configuration/Setup Utility >Advanced Setup>PCI Control> Network Adapters [Enabled]



BTW ......... my machine type is 300PL model 65-6236U I upgraded the bios to Bios Date 07/17/00 (it had an older bios and wouldn't boot before i upgraded) Before it didn't say [Booting PXE-M04 ] > now it does.................. You might also check your hardware jumper settings in the computer hardware itself... the schematic is on the underside of the case cover........ but you probably already knew that :)

Hope that helps.....

Cheers,
