I am deploying some laptops for the users in our company but there is an error which occurs every time.

When I enter the recovery mode, the device tries to connect to the deploy server to retrieve an IP address. Indeed, this fails and shows a message which says

"Network is unreachable".


You should check to see if the network is available before entering Deploy Studio.

From the Recovery Boot Menu (CMD-R boot method) open the Get Help option (it has the Safari logo) and try to navigate to a webpage. If that is unsuccessful, you don't have network access at all.

In that case, one issue might be that you need to register your device/MAC address with your company's network infra before getting access. I worked at a University and this was the case there. If you need help getting the MAC let us know.

Additionally, you could try connecting via ethernet.

Best of luck.

The problem was, that the MAC didn't detect the Ethernet cable as an Ethernet LAN (because we have it plugged in an adapter) cable anymore rather USB-c so i have just changed in the network utility option the settings to listen to the USB-c port. Then i entered the command

ipconfig set *interface name* dhcp

It is not the best solution, but a temporal saver
