You receive an Error code "pxe - e53: no boot file name received from binl,
dhcp, or bootp"



This is a PXE Exception when the DHCP or PXE Server does not transmit the bootfile name option.
Usually the error is triggered when a valid aknowledgement is received but the expected option is missing.
Set the bootfile name option on the corresponding dhcp servers.
