A Globally Unique Identifier or GUID is a special type of identifier used in software applications in order to provide a reference number which is unique. This is how the PXE boot finds the server or how the server find the computer for the PXE boot.

Thank for the quick response, can you please provide me some online tutorial for reference to understand this behavior.
is this GUID works only in PXE ?? Does GUID for the same hardware would be different for different application ?
