Pxe configuration utility updating

To do this, select the properties of the distribution point.Under the PXE tab (see screen shot below), enable PXE support, including options to support unknown devices and whether a password should be required.

Next, make sure the x86 and x64 boot images are distributed to the PXE-enabled distribution point.

Even if all your clients are x64, you still need the x86 PXE boot image to be available.

This is because modern net card boot agent takes charge during the boot process if it is set to do so on the net card PROM.

If your card is old and you don't want to waste time trying to understand why it isn't working, you are strongly encouraged to first update old net card firmware with a recent version (PXE 2.0/boot agent v4 or better).

Common errors that are seen at the PXE boot screen when the PXE Service Point is either not configured properly or experiencing problems are the following: PXE-E53: No boot filename received PXE-T01: File not found PXE-E3B: TFTP Error – File not Found PXE-E55 Proxy DHCP Service did not reply to request on port 4011 PXE-T04: Access Violation PXE-E36: Error Received from TFTP Server PXE-M-F Exiting PXE Rom However the error messages can vary depending on the PXE implementation on the client PC. Otherwise, if either the DHCP server, the client PC or the Config Mgr 2007 server is running WDS and the PXE Service Point are on separate subnets or vlans, which is usually the case in most environments, the first step to take before trying to install and configure the PXE Service Point and WDS is to set up IP Helpers on the routers.

How to do this varies depending on the router hardware manufacturer but the general overview is outlined at the below link: For further information on how to properly configure IP Helpers on the routers, please contact the hardware manufacturer of the router.

The following assumes that you have configured DHCP option 67 (Bootfile Name) to "boot\PXEboot.n12" which enables direct boot to PXE with no user interaction.

For more information about DHCP options for network boot, see Managing Network Boot Programs.

Not meeting both of these criteria will cause the PXE Service Point not to work correctly.

When checking DHCP options, make sure to check options at both the server and scope levels.

DHCP Options 66 and 67 should still NOT be set in this scenario.
