Before updating clients bios

I'm a ham radio operator and have been since 1987, when I got my Novice ticket in rural South Dakota (SD) at 14 years old. I found a lot of 7 on e Bay, for a reasonable price, so now I'm in action.It's been a fun hobby, even though I took a break from roughly 1993-2013. I went to the Mike and Key Ham Fest down in Puyallup, WA in the spring of 2015. Anyway, this is a repost of an article I found on a blogspot post about how to tune the TK-890 to the high end of the 70cm ham bands.The good news is that fixing all this is simple – sorta.You effectively just need to do two things: es, the Venue tablets sure enough would successfully PXE boot, getting the proper UEFI boot file in the process. Making these changes broke PXE for all (or as it turns out, almost all) of our desktops and laptops, which had been working fine for years.Before I showed up there, I had been thinking about a GMRS license and radios for the family. They didn't come with microphones, but I didn't see that as a big deal...while I was at the ham fest. This particular breed of radio, as a result of the genius of Kenwood, doesn't have a standard microphone plug. That article has since disappeared and the blogspot site is no longer in, I'm reposting the content here. ) (from Wirelessness blog from W6DTW, originally at Over the past weekend a friend of mine asked if I would help him convert his Kenwood TK-890 mobile to work on the ham bands.I picked up a Kenwood TKR-820 repeater, already programmed to the GMRS repeater frequencies. I wasn't sure how successful we'd be, since most every online search came up with at best little information or at worst flat out statement saying "Nope, can't be done." As it turns out, it can't be done.


The biggest problem though – and the one that for us started this whole process – is that by specifying a boot file name in option 67, you eliminate your PXE server’s ability to dynamically determine which boot file it serves to a client.

The typical “recommended” configuration for PXE requires explicitly setting these three options (again: 60, 66, and 67) so that your clients receive this information directly from your DHCP server.
