Dell Poweredge R730 PXE boot issue
I am stuck with Imaging Dell Poweredge R730. It fails to contact DHCP server.
I have checked the Ip helpers and DHCP options. Since the client environment does not support UEFI it is going through legacy.
I have tried reconfiguring RAID and PXE bot again, but it still fails with same error. Tried updating the IDRAC firmware too.
Other models PXE boot fine in the same network.
Any help is highly appreciated.

I don’t have any further clue on this issue. May be need to involve Dell?
Yep, I too am going to do that. Tried changing the boot Image too..
Need to involve Dell now.
Thank you for your time, cheers.
Well, have you added the required drivers to boot image ? Storage drivers ?
Do you have any other server with same configuration working ok?
I think you need to check SMSTs.log to get more details ….
Can you check X:\Windows\Temp\SMSTSLOG\SMSTS.log

Thank you for your reply. I apologize as I mentioned that machine has not even downloaded the WIM file. There are no logs as of now. Machine is just trying to contact DHCP server to get DHCP ip.
Machine is stuck on this process of contacting DHCP server as shown in screenshot.
By the way I can’t read the screenshot.. do you mind putting the details in text format

Can you check X:\Windows\Temp\SMSTSLOG\SMSTS.log whether this log is created or not…it’s might not be but just a sanity check
No, I have checked it, no logs created..
