X1 Carbon - What is needed to support ethernet PXE Boot?


I want to deploy the company image to my X1 Carbon via SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager by Microsoft)



Currently we deploy via PXE Boot, but  with the X1 Carbon not having a network interface connector, we're going to have an issue deploying the images on 200 units.


 Is there a USB network interface connector available that support PXE booting?  


Yes there is a USB Ethernet dongle that supports PXE booting.

The Lenovo part number is 0A36322.

The X1 should have shipped with their proprietary USB mini A (?) to Ethernet Adapter. But the above should work for PXE boot too. ** Note: I tried to order more of the Adapters that shipped with our Carbons and they are not available after-market, at least according to CDW.


It appears they are available however:
