    Ok a little more digging resulted in this page:

    BIS-Programmierung Tipps & Tricks - PXE Client Status/Error Codes

    Which claims the error means "BIS entry structure in the SM BIOS table is invalid." Basically it's an issue in the BIOS. Either it's not enabled PXE boot correctly or its broken. I would suspect a BIOS update is the solution.

    I was going to suggest PXE booting them into a DOS floppy image, but that'd clearly be silly.

    luckily theres a windows base biso updater, simple .exe that you run, ok to a few prompts, pc reboots and its done.

    will probably run a batch file pointing at the installer..
