Won't Netboot 2011 MBP

I just started a new job where I have to manage a lab of MacBook Pros.  We have two vintages - 15 inch Late 2008 and 15 inch Late 2011.  Both are running 10.11.2.  I've got DeployStudio up and running on my server (Early 2009 iMac running 10.11.2 and current version of Mac Server with DeployStudio 1.7.1)

I created the netboot set on the Late 2011 MacBook Pro and transferred it over via flash drive. 

The 2008 MBP netboots fine... everything is perfect.

The 2011 MBP will not netboot.  It sees it when I look in Startup Disk in System Preferences, but will not netboot when I boot holding N.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Won't Netboot 2011 MBP

Do you have more than one netboot set enabled on the server?

What exactly happens when you boot holding N?
Have you tried booting while holding the option key down?

Re: Won't Netboot 2011 MBP

In Mac Server there is only one image listed under NetInstall - and I have removed older Netboot sets from the NetbootSP0 folder.  Neither MacBook Pros (08 or 11) show the netboot set when I option boot them.  But the 08 does boot to it.  The 11 shows the globe for a minute or so, then boots to its internal startup disk.  Thank you! 

Edit:  It DOES show up on both machines under Startup Disk in System Preferences. Just to clarify.
