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"
