Hello,

 

This whole WDS is new to me and I am finding so much on the net, but not really sure what is all relevant to me.

 

Here is my situation and hopefully you can help,

 

I just recently started as an intern (getting my MCSA). I have no "real world" experience with any of this yet and so this intenship was supposed to be great. My first day I lost the admin. I have been on my own ever since.

 

I have to deploy some company images, but am at a total loss right now. I just upgraded from SP1 to SP2. We are running Windows Server 2003. All deployment was previously done through RIS.

 

Now I am having problems deploying images.

 

I have two computers that will boot through and get an IP address. Then they are locked in an endless loop.

 

Get to the "TFTP Download: Boot\x86\wdsnbp.com" and just loops there.

 

The other computer is different it loops at "TFTP Download: Boot\x64\pxeboot.com"

 

I have no idea what to do. I have tried all the other little fixes that I could understand.

 

Mind helping me out?

 

I could really use the help soon, as I have the VP computer and need to have it back to him ASAP!

ok first of all are you deploying XP or Vista ? and I assume the two computers you are attempting to install to are both 32 bit and 64 bit ?

 

from your error it sounds like WDS is not configured correctly

 

take a look at this post to get an idea of the options

 

cheers

Apparently my last post did not go through...

 

We are running XP Pro on client machines with SP2 so far and using Server 2003 with SP2...

 

All WDS is configured as shown, but I did not do the original installation or configuration.

 

I have been out researching other places and have found that the format needs to be changed to WIM??? I try to convert the images to WIM and while going through the wizard am prompted to define a location and filename. We only have x86 as far as I have been told. I tried to choose the images folder inside the x86 folder and am given the following message

 

wdsmgmt could not load a required library. If this is version of windows prior to vista, please install the OPK/WAIK toolkit and ensure that the drvstore.dll and cmiv2.dll are in the path.

 

Not sure what that means and/or how to correct it.

 

Any suggestions?
