Not sure if this is the issue, but I just read the release notes for 
bios A02 for the 2850, and in there is:

* Update PXE UNDI code to version 1.2.16P6 - Fixes loss of manageability
  during PXE Boot.

Are you running A02? Might be worth an upgrade otherwise.

Might anyway, there seem to be some good stuff in there, like:

"This BIOS enables Intel XD support (aka "NX") – Please search for document
 number 1091548 within the Technical Support section of the DELL.COM 
 website for more information on NX technology"
