Thanks for the guide first off, it's very helpful. However, I am having issues with part of Part 7 of this guide. When I create my task sequence and deploy it to my test collection, I get the following error after pressing F12 to PXE boot my machine:

 

Windows Boot Manager (Server IP :W.X.Y.Z.)

 

WIndows Failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

 

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.

2. Choose your language settings, and then click 'Next.'

3. Click "Repair your computer."

 

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

 

File: \Boot\BCD

 

Status: 0xc000000f

 

Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data

 

I have no idea what is causing this and I believe I have things set up correctly. I have already tried removing the PXE password requirement but that did not resolve the issue.

I believe the user is since they posted a screenshot before that one. I'm interested in your response since this user is having similar (but not exact) issues that I too am having

they must press F12 twice !, the first time gets the network ip address, contacts WDS, downloads some files, the second is to start network boot proper so that you can start your task sequences, so that user must press F12 when stated on screen, is your issue similar ?

I do not have to press F12 twice (where does it say to do that?). I get the same screen in your quoted response, the 'Press F12 for Network boot'. After that I get the same error screen the other user posted but my status id is different (noted in previous post).

ok so is your network card your first boot device in the bios ? then no need to press F12 twice, you only need to press F12 when it states 'press F12', that's the point i'm trying to make, F12 on most dells for example initiates a one time boot menu where you can select Network boot...

OK that makes more sense. I'm still getting the 0xc000000f error at after pressing F12. I have removed passwords for PXE. Note of interest when I created my boot images and distribute them it creates a second WIM file in the \\share\SMS_XXX\OSD\boot\i386 and x64 folders. Is that normal?

 

So, in the i386 folder I have boot.wim and boot.12300015.wim

Hello, I'm on the first step of part 7 to enable PXE.

 

When I click on Administration, Site Configuration, Servers and Site System Roles, and double click on the Distribution Point role listed, I only get one tab that says "general".

 

Did I miss a step in a previous part? Thank you for any direction you can providew.

 

DUH....I was clicking the wrong part...never mind...got it!

Hello I have created a new virtual machine, but have NOT been successful in seeing it added to the build and capture Windows 7 X64 collection. I am using vm ware esxi 4.1 instead of Hyper-V. should I begin again a new slate with RC2 and hyper v?

 

I have obtained the MAC address, and computer name...The new VM in questio shows in the confgmngr console under all systems, but will not add to the specified collection. Any ideas?

I've had this problem in the past as well. It seems it just takes time for it to show up in the collection. I'm using the same setup as you (VMWare ESX 4.1).

 

Delete the VM, recreate it, note the MAC address and add it as a resources into the collection. Also, what I did was actually turn the (no OS installed) VM on and just let it sit after adding it to SCCM. I wonder if SCCM goes out and checks the network for that MAC address somehow and once it confirms it shows it in the list?

I'm having an issue getting the task sequence to run.

 

I am able to PXE boot, and the boot file loads in, but it never gets to the task sequence wizard. It will just reboot the machine.

 

I am running RC2, and trying to PXE boot a Virtual machine.

I'm not sure how I would know if it is getting an ip or not. I'm not seeing an the smsts.log file.

 

I get to this screen:

 

 

Then the dialog box goes away, then it reboots.
