HP Compaq 6200 Pro not booting from LAN



I have a SFF deskop that is now, seemingly, refusing to boot from LAN (PXE) - I am trying to take an image of the hard disk for use with our deployment solution but when I hit the F12 key to boot from lan  the screen goes blank as if trying but does not give any PXE options and then after serveral seconds continues to boot into windows?


I have checked the BIOS and cannot see the LAN/NIC option from within the the boot order


Has anyone else come across this?


Thanks in advance

Whenever you go into BIOS head for the "Device Options" tab, scroll down to "NIC Pixie Option -> Enable". I've had issues if the Network Controller was not set as the first boot device, System IDs were not entered or if the Storage Option was set to AHCI. We're currently running Native Mode IDE but we hardly ever receive them set up correctly.
