Network Boot on an Acer Veriton N260G

If you want to boot an Acer Veriton N260G off the network

  • for example to deploy a standard OS build- you may find that there’s no network card listed in the F12 boot menu. If this is the case you’ll need to make a quick config change in the BIOS.

Turn on the computer and press the delete key on the POST/Acer screen to get into the CMOS Setup Utility. In here open the “Integrated Peripherals” section and change “Onboard LAN Option ROM” to “Enabled”. Then press F10 and select OK to Save and exit.

The computer then reboots, press F12 to get the boot menu to appear and you should see something like “Network: Yukon PXE” listed.
