SCCM 2012 - PXE point reinstall

Recommended Posts




I bet all of you have had problems with your PXE points both in SCCM 2007 and SCCM 2012.


The 5th time I installed SCCM 2012 I got problems and had to reinstall it.


Here is my checklist for reinstalling it.

  • untick the enable PXE checkbox on the distribution point. Answer yes that you want to remove the Windows Deployment service.
  • remove your boot images from your distribution point
  • After 5 minutes. Delete %windir%\temp
  • check with server manager if you can add/remove roles on the server. If WDS is done uninstalling there is a pending boot.Reboot!!!
  • check if the remoteinstall folder is located on your system. If it is delete it.
  • reboot
  • Add the PXE point again by checking the box on the distribution point properties. Check the distrmgr.log and see if the remoteinstall folder reappers..
  • Send the boot images to the distribution points again.

Should be good now.


If you have more steps that should be added, please let me know :-)
