Optiplex 960 issue?

Hey Guys,

Having an issue with a specific model of Dell computer. We have a few older Optiplex 960's that won't boot to the Win PE eviroment using PXE. When the computer starts and you boot to the network card it picks up the PXE server and loads the acronis screen. You select PE Media and it goes to the black PE Windows Screen and the circle of dots just keeps spinning. All the other machines seem to be working fine its just these Optiplex 960's. Is it a network driver issue if it gets to the PE loading screen and just spins or something else? I even injected the older intel drivers for the network adapter from Dell's website to test which has the same issue. We are using the Snap Deploy 5 Beta version that you can download from the forums here. Any ideas would be helpful to pinpoint this down. Thanks in advance.

Well it seems to be some sort of issue between the intel matrix storage driver needed for the 960 and the latest version of RST. I downgraded the RST version to 14.x.x.x instead of 15.5.x.x and I was able to get it to work.

What is the build # for the version of snap deploy that you are using?
