    Network Adapter error after bios update

    MacrosParadox

      Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I'm out of hair to pull out figuring this out. I updated the bios in some older Dell computers (Optiplex 980). The bios update was successful, but now before the windows loads "PXE-E05: The LAN adapter's NVM configuration is corrupted or has not been initialized. The Boot Agent cannot continue." Followed by "Nic Error" Now the bios and Windows don't even see the adapter. I've tried:

      Re-flashing the bios

      Flashing to the previous version of the bios

      Resetting the CMOS

      Restoring Bios to default

      changing the boot order to just the HDD

       

      And I'm still stumped, any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
