Hey all,

Since upgrading to CM 2002, I have done the following:

Upgrade ADK to 2004, rebuild boot images. 

Now, when I PXE boot, it loads the WIM, loads up the WinPE environment background - then poof, it restarts (I never get prompted with the password entry to start my OSD). I cannot press F8 to have the command prompt appear (I still have that enabled), therefore I cannot get to any log files to diagnose. I am attempting to deploy Windows 10 1903.

Any suggestions?

Here is an excerpt from SMSPXE on the last boot I did. It doesn't appear to have any issues.

did you fix cmd support so you can also grab the smsts.log ?

unfortunately, no. Once the background shows, no keystrokes work. F8 should bring up command prompt, but it does nothing. The only thing I can see before pressing F8 is the background image (MS Endpoint Configuration Manager default background), then a flash (like a window appears), then the computer restarts.

are you sure you upgraded Windows ADK properly then ? there are two components to it this time...

Yep. Removed the 1903 ADK, removed the PE component, rebooted. Downloaded the 2004 ADK, and the corresponding PE component from the MS docs page.

installed adk, then PE, rebooted. rebuilt boot images.

I even went as far as creating a new boot image, and using that and enabling it for PXE distribution, thinking that my boot image might be to blame. Ensured also that i have the correct network drivers in the boot image. still results in the same issue.

very odd, i don't have adk 2004 in my cm2002 lab but i can upgrade it this evening to observe the behaviour

did you verify from the boot package Id that it's pulling down the boot image you set the settings on ?

Yes. That is what was strange. With the boot image I have been using, I specified a custom background. The boot package ID matched, however the custom background doesn't load. that's what led me to create a new boot image as I thought something was corrupt as it wouldn't load the background.

if you are using https then are you sure you have no issues with your certs ? for example on your issuingCA run pkiview.msc and verify everything looks healthy as this can impact PXE booting.

Dear Colleagues,

Hope this finds you and your loved ones well and safe, thought it might help you, we had these kind of issues with Microsoft Surface, the issue was with the time and date.

Please check if this might be your issue.

Wish you a lovely evening.

Checked, everything looks great.

I went ahead and removed ADK 2004, and reinstalled ADK 1903, everything is working fine again. I'm going to try removal / re-installation of ADK 2004 again, and see what my results are.

Will let you know

did you install CM2002 in the slow ring or fast ring ? have you seen any update appear in updates and servicing for PXE boot issues (amongst other things) ?
