Problem networking booting Yoga 3 (& 2) via ThinkPad USB network adapter

Hi all,

 

I've already done a little research into my issue, but I just wanted to ask on here for some direct advice/sanity check.

 

As the title suggests, I was trying to network boot some Yoga laptops using a ThinPad USB 3.0 network adapter (model RTL8153) but have been running into a problem where the adapter is seemingly not detected.

 

 

In the BIOS of each laptop it lists "ASIX AX88772A/B", which I gather is the supported chipset for USB network booting these laptops, whereas the RTL8153 is Realtek.

 

When I try to boot, I get this:

 

Enumerating for ASIX USB DONGLE ...
No ASIX USB Dongle found.
PXE-M0F Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device.

 

Now, from my admittedly limited research, it appears that I simply need a USB network adapter with the aforementioned ASIX chipset. Is this true or is there a way to get the RTL8153 working?

 

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

(PS Apologies if this is better suited for a more enterprise-centric area of the community! Feel free to move the thread.)

Just found a network adapter with the ASIX chipset and the laptops were able to network boot perfectly.

 

Problem solved!
