    Hi, @Loganathan R

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    It seems your boot image is missing the WinPE driver for that NIC.

    Please try to do the following:

    1. Grab the enterprise driver pack for the correct version of WinPE for the OS being deployed. Extract it, then import the WinPE drivers to the boot drivers folder.
    2. Update the Deployment Share (will re-generate the boot images)
    3. Import the updated boot image to WDS (or whatever you use as a PXE server)

    The similar thread for your reference:
