E&M Problem using Maxwell's Equations

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The problem statement is in the attached .png file. There are a few equations involved which would have taken a decent amount of time to type out.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I understand Maxwell's equations, and wrote out all 4 assuming there are no sources present. I then have 8 scalar equations that should allow me to solve for the remaining E&M field components, but I can't figure out how to relate them and arrive at a solution. Do I need to incorporate boundary conditions as well?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Yes, you need to incorporate boundary conditions, the problem even says so.
