Lenovo T470 NIC not found

  • We have tried PXE and USB boot for these computers and the computer does not get an IP address. Other computers are able to connect. The previous version of this computer ( T460) worked. When we choose " Display available NICs " we get the following:

    We have tried both version 1.2 and 1.3 and get the same result.
    On the T460 device manager lists the NIC as Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I219-LM and the driver version as

    On the T470 device manager lists teh NIC as Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (4) I219-LM with the same driver number.

    Based on other conversations on the forum I added two kernels to the USB in the clonedeploy folder, 4.9.8x64 and 4.10.1x64. The 4.5x64 was already there ( and is still there ). No other changes were made to the files on the boot USB.

    Is there an issue with the NICs in the Lenovo T470?

  • Have you tried the 4.13 kernel? Are you sure you are changing the kernel properly, just adding to a folder does not do anything?
