Replying to clawes:

The Paravirtualized Network does not work either.

It appears that the system does not attempt to initiate a network boot when any of the affected NICs is selected. Instead it goes directly to the next device in the Boot Order.

Do you have the extension pack installed? Without the extension pack, the Intel adapters are not supported for PXE.

Is the extension pack a new feature in version 4? I'm not aware of any extension pack in previous versions.
