Okay, so I took the same usb stick that I'm trying to use on the asus
and plugged it into my intel nuc and then booted it up. Turns out
setting up the network boot is pretty easy; however, I get this root
mount failed message on the asus:

I don't quite understand why it says "PXE: no interface"

Should I wipe clean the HDD on the asus prior to trying the pxe boot?
