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!
