Have you run the Windows Deployment Services Legacy setup.  This will ask you to create the default boot image.  This is the same thing you used to setup RIS origionally.

I don't perform the upgrade myself I find the ris server in this situation. WDS is now in mixed mode. have I to add the boot.vim image or I have to convert my legacy xp image in vim files?

You probably need to run the Windows Deployment Services Legacy setup.  You will be asked to create a default windows xp image.  After that you should be able to install images from the server.  I have done this in the past and it works well.  Just make sure you do not upgrade it from Mixed Mode to Native Mode.

Here is a link from microsoft on setting up WDS.
