      Check the BIOS & NIC

      We had two batches of 745’s here at my current employer.

      Believe it or not, one batch didn’t support WOL or PXE. Made imaging/deployments loads of laughs.

      Go into the BIOS and look into the boot options, and see what you have available. Assuming that checks out, look into the specific model of NIC that is in the system, and go to the Dell support site to see what functionalities it does/doesn’t support.

      Best of luck!

      Remote Wake up does not work if Low Power Mode is enabled in the bios.

        I wonder if they are still having problems, or if they even still have
        the Dell Optiplex GX745 in service after 4 years? Let the zombies
        sleep.
