PXE boot issue and performance problems

I created a master image which was captured from a Dell Latitude 3510 laptop.  I have the .tib image validated and verified successfully.  When I boot up the laptop via PXE I choose to launch "Snap Deploy 5 Agent".  I then get an error message which I have attached to this post.  If I boot off the USB that has the Snap Deploy 5 Agent on it, I am able to see the IP address and see it in a ready state on the server.  The problem is when I go to deploy the image it runs barely at 3MB a second on a 1Gb network.  I am at a loss of what to do as I have tried rebuilding the image, choosing Unicast over Multicast and modifying them both to allow a 900MB of network bandwidth, rebuilt a PE image file and have tried it on another laptop with the same specs and no luck.

Hi jah8887,

Have you tested creating the WinPE / WinRE version of the Acronis Rescue Media to see if you still see the video mode issue?

I did make a win pe boot media and tried running that via PXE but it did the same thing.  Anything else I can try?

I just made another Win PE image.  I disabled secure boot in the bios and also made sure the hard drive was set from raid to AHCI.  The drives are NVME drives which the Win PE image has drivers for.  I am now getting an NBP error message.  Any idea?  I am starting to get a back log of laptops and pcs needing to be imaged.

Hello jah8887!

Please make sure that you uploaded this new WinPE iso on the PXE server.

Please also clarify whether you are able to boot this remote PC locally with any of Acronis Bootable media (either Linux-based or WinPE-based).
