sccm 2012 pxe boot fails preparing network connections

Recommended Posts

Hi There,


I am running SCCM 2012 and when deploying a windows O/S PXE fails and the system reboots whilst "preparing network connections".


Background Information:


The solution was working at one stage however, the boot images were corrupt and I could not apply new drivers. So the decision was made to delete and start a fresh.


I have recreated two new boot images for x86 and x64 and injected all the original drivers and configured the system to use the x64 image for PXE boot. I can confirm that the correct driver for the systems NIC has been injected but whilst troubleshooting with the F8 function no drivers get loaded and the deployment reboots the computer.


I'm slowly losing the will to live and hope you can help... :-(


I have attached the SMSTS.log file in hope that someone could tell me what I have missed.

Hi Andy


Is it possible for you to test this on a virtual machine to rule out the problem just been drivers?

How have you deployed the TS, available, required, if required has a task been edited/updated and not updated on DP? This will give same symptoms as a missing driver (only if TS is deployed as required, if available then it will alert you with a splash screen i:e package xxxxxx not available)

Also the time-date on the BIOS of the system is correct? Not having it correct will cause this symptom also.
