I'm trying to PXE boot SystemRescueCD 6.1.5 (based on Arch Linux) on a Dell laptop with a Thunderbolt USB Ethernet adapter. I'm setting ip=dhcp and BOOTIF= in the command line. However the USB ethernet adapter does not appear to the kernel until after the archiso_pxe_common hook runs and so it complains about no device to continue. How do I get the system to wait until the ethernet device appears?
This task depends upon

@opoplawski: Thanks for reporting an issue.

Unfortunately SystemRescueCD is not an Arch Linux project. Please use the project's issue tracker [1] to report your problem.
