PXE Will Not Load XMS Driver

Created: 21 Apr 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment

I have  PXE set up with no extra added drivers, it works on all of my computers (including a new laptop hp 6730b) except the brand new Hp xw 4600 workstations.  PXE loads up the IP address and starts to download but then an error comes up that says:
Error: unable to control A20 Line
XMS Driver not installed
It then loads up the mouse driver and comes up with an   abort: 35010, internal crc error:30

then it asks to inser a disk

does anyone have any ideas?

 Hi aldertond,

It sounds like memory issue under dos.
did you try to use emm386? without emm386, it might not have enough XMS memory.
it would be good to see what is in you autoexec.bat and config.sys file.
