So do I. But all of them are capable of doing PXE-boot...

I'm not, AFAIK.

I'd be very surprised if you can't.

Trouble is you have to go into the bios and find it. Often called
network boot or something similar. You often have to enable it first
in the NIC section of your bios and then in the boot section.

And finding the right place varies a lot from bios to bios.

In my experience, it's primarily systems without embedded network
interfaces that have a problem with PXE (due to no PXE code in the NIC
ROM). I had a cluster 10-11 years ago with nodes that booted PXE from
floppy.
