There seem to be quite a few issues regarding that machine and wifi. As
a simple start, can you follow this suggestion?

Turn on Network Booting feature in Bios
Move Network boot to first place in boot priorities in Bios

Also, can you please provide the output of:

$ sudo lshw -C Network
$ rfkill list
