PXE-E52 proxyDHCP offers were received. No DHCP offers were received

The following error occurs when trying to boot any Thinkpad Edge model 0301-26u using a network PXE server:  proxyDHCP offers were received. No DHCP offers were received.  Details of the problem are as follows:


1.) This same error occurs on both 3Com (Ghost default) and Acronis PXE servers.

2.) The 3Com PXE server has been used extensively with many makes and models and has worked for us without issue until this model.

3.) The 3Com server shows a log of the machine connecting however the machine never makes it to downloading anything via TFTP.

4.) The Thinkpad's have been updated to the latest BIOS.

5.) The client machine, PXE server and DHCP server are all on the same switch with no routing required.

6.) The DHCP scope is not full.

7.) The PXE-E52 error occurs very quickly.


My hunch is this may be an issue with the boot rom on network card.  Anyone successfully booted this model via PXE?
