Pre-Execution Environment (PXE) allows a workstation to boot from a server on a network prior to booting the operating system on the local hard drive. A network administrator does not have to physically visit the specific workstation and manually boot it. Operating systems and other software, such as diagnostic programs, can be loaded onto the device from a server over the network. PXE environment uses DHCP to configure it's IP address.
The DHCP/BootP Relay Agent configuration must be done on the router if the DHCP server is located on another routed segment of the network. The ip helper address command on the local router interface must be configured.
I'm sure you have already done this step but you stated you think you have contact with the PXE, plug in a functioning workstation and verify that you are getting the correct IP and that you are able to ping the PXE server. Also from past experience if you have speed and duplex set to anything other than auto on the switch that can cause PXE issues. The the final point you mention this is working fine in production for you...what are the differences in hardware and configuration between you prod and test networks.

Introduction The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the Open
Shortest Path First (OSPF) behavior when the V-bit (Virtual-link bit) is
present in a non-backbone area. The V-bit is signaled in Type-1 LSA only
if the router is the endpoint of one or ...
Hi, I am seeing quite a few issues with patch install and wanted to
share my experience and workaround to this. Login to admin via CLI, then
