When a client computer is trying to boot to PXE, it receives the following error message:
PXE-E53: No boot filename received
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE Rom.
The client computer requested a PXE boot menu and did not receive sufficient instructions on how to get one.
The basic PXE process starts with a DHCP request which is expecting responses that include 1) an IP address for the booting system, 2) the address of the PXE server and 3) the name of the .0 or .efi file (the PXE boot menu). If only #1 is returned and not 2,3, an E53 error is displayed.
Following are some possible reasons this might happen.
