Change default PXE boot image

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am facing issue with my PXE boot. My PXE boot is working fine but it is taking only one winpe image to boot.

 

Can you please suggest me how to change this default image to replace with my newly created image.

 

I try new image in task sequence but this is not helping me to boot with new image.

 

Please help me on this.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

If you have advertised more than one Task Seqeunce to a Collection where the task seqeunces uses different boot images, the client will Always pick up the boot image of the task seqeunce that was advertised last. Could that be the issue you are facing?

Hi!

 

If I understand your question correctly, I think you want to change the boot image that computers obtain when they PXE boot. If this is the case, right click on the boot image that you want your DP to offer for all PXE requests, go to properties-->Data Source and check the box "Deploy this boot image from the PXE-enabled distribution point". Un-check the same box for the boot image you want to remove.

 

I hope this helps,

Thanks Jorgen and Rafael,

 

I re-run the advertise and this solve the issue but now have go into other issue.

 

After task squense start at one stage after partitioning and formating the drive the system reboot and show "bootmgr missing".

 

Can you help me on this. The same setup run properly on VMware. I think there is some storage drive issue but I am not sure where to specify those drives in the task sequence.

 

Thanks,

It could be that your new boot.wim file is missing some drivers that were injected into the boot.wim you were previously using.

Check your original boot.wim that you were using to see what drivers are present in it.

Then check to make sure that your present boot.wim has same drivers...if not add them also to the wim file.

Thanks,

 

Boot image issue is resovle and it is processing the task sequences but in task sequence after reboot the system gives bootmgr missing issue on physical system.

The system is at remote place so i can not go and get the logs. Very limited support from client.

 

Can you tell me what can be the issue.

 

Thanks,
