file not found means it cannot find a file to read or boot from

 

verify that you have a boot image in windows deployment services

 

if you do, is the WDS server running on the same pc as the DHCP server or a different one ?

Mixed

 

In mixed mode (Windows Server 2003), WDS offers both OSChooser and WinPE booting, plus RISetup, RIPrep and WIM functionality. Management of RIS is via the RIS utilities, and management of WDS via the WDS mmc console or command line utility (wdsutil). The mode requires that RIS has been pre-configured on the Windows 2003 server.

 

 

the above tells you that you should have setup RIS first, otherwise you'll end up in native mode with no possibility of doing ris or legacy installs

 

so maybe its time to uninstall WDS and start again by reading this WDS topic

hello anyweb

 

i knew that but should i use windows XP, 2003 server or vista CD/DVD to get oschooser. i'm asking that because i'm going to deploy vista .

 

i hope isn't a stupid question ;)

if you are going to deploy Vista then you don't need mixed mode functionality

your problem is either a permissions problem or a mis configuration..

 

right click on your RemoteInstall folder in explorer and click on it's properties

 

you should see an entry in there for WDSServer and it should have all rights

if it doesn't then the WDS installation has failed and you can try adding them manually, or remove WDS, reboot, remove the remoteinstall folder, and reinstall WDS

 

cheers

it is not a normal user account, it is a service created during WDS intsallation.

 

please uninstall WDS, reboot, remove the remoteinstall folder, reinstall wds and check again
