Looking at a "System 58 error" with Windows 7 --


I'm wondering if the problem lies in the "server max level = NT1" issue 
we've seen before with Windows 10?

In other words, the problem may lie in the PXE Windows PE 10.0 environment.

It's making a request but not receiving the answer it requires to make 
the connection.
