SCCM 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008 R2 problem with PXE boot

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to get a test system to boot with a PXE setup.


Basics on the install:

Windows 2008 R2

SCCM 2007 SP2


I have followed all of the instructions, and installed WDS without setting it up. Then installed the ConfigMgr PXE service point.


I then opened the Operating System Deployment entry, went to Boot Images and updated the Distribution Points for both Boot image (x64) and Boot image (x86) to point to the SCCM 2007 server for both standard distribution and SMSPXEIMAGES$.


At that point I verified that the folders were populated with the proper files. They are















The network helpers are present:

pointing ot the server


and correct file for booting



The test computer boots ot the PXE loader, it checks out an IP address and starts the boot process.

Looking at the log file:

C:\Program Files (x86)\SMS_CCM\Logs\smspxe.log

I see that it receives a connection and sends requested information.
