          We have a 5510 with a USB C adapter and just adding the correct network driver to WinPE worked for us.

            Hi Nilay,

             

            I just discovered a curious thing with the Precision 5520 series.

             

            First, you have to activate the support for USB-C adaptors in the BIOS in the Thunderbolt section.

             

            This gives you TWO devices under the Legacy Boot options.

             

            And guess what - if you choose USB NIC, PXE won't start and you get an error message saying that your device could not be initialized.

             

            But if you choose the 2nd option - USB storage - then PXE will work.
