A while back I was having some issues with getting PXE boot to work. After about a week of working on it, we finally got everything up and running and we were able to image machines through PXE. A few days ago, the power went out in our server room and caused a bunch of issues. Now we cannot get PXE to work. I have tried completely removing everything and starting over, but it still does not work. Here is what I have done:
-Uncheck PXE box from DP (WDS removed)
-Uncheck Distribute for PXE in x86 and x64 boot images
-Install WDS (no additional setup)
-Check PXE box in DP and check "Allow distribution to rspond" and "Enable unknown support"
-Check Distribute for PXE in x86 and x64.
I also noticed that the files that should be in SMSBOOT\x64 and \x86 were not there, so I copied them from the BOOT folder.
When I boot up into PXE, it finds the server and the WDSNBP file, but gets stuck at Contacting Server: [sccm2012 server]........
In the event log, it says:
failed to copy E:\RemoteInstall\SMSTempBootFiles\OKE00004\WINDOWS\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi to E:\RemoteInstall\SMSBoot\x64\bootmgfw.efi
InstallBootFilesForImage failed. 0x80070003
Warning: Failed to copy the needed boot binaries from the boot image E:\RemoteInstall\SMSImages\OKE00004\boot.OKE00004.wim
Failed adding image E:\RemoteInstall\SMSImages\OKE00004\boot.OKE00004.wim. Will retry. The system cannot find the path specified.
There is also a long list of warnings that keep saying:
Warning: Matching Processor Architecture Boot Image (6) not found
I have confirmed that the E:\RemoteInsall\SMSImages\OKE00004.wim file exists.
