Unable to start WDS service in Win2k3 R2 SP2

I have installed a Win2k3 R2 SP2 server in my test environment. This server is also configured as a SCCM 2007 R2 Central server. My plan was to have this a PXE server to deploy OS images via WinPE for test purposes. SCCM is configured, but I have no success in installing WDS or PXE. When I enable the Central site as a PXE point, I can see in the logs that the PXE service is not installed successfully due to that the WDS service won't start. When I installed WDS I can't get the service to start. The DHCP scope has 66 and 67 configured, but I have no IP Helper yet. The DHCP scope is on the same subnet as the SCCM primary server. I have tried these commands: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927770 
But I get an error on the first step:

An error occurred while trying to execute the command.
Error Code: 0x3A
Error Description: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

My application eventlog gives me this error:
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      WDSServer
Event Category:      WDSServer

An error occurred while trying to initialize provider BINLSVC from C:\WINDOWS\system32\binlsvc.dll. Windows Deployment Services server will be shutdown.
 Error Information: 0x3A

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

The server is in a OU without GPO's.

I have been looking all over for a solution but I can't find it anywhere. Maybe someone here can give me some tips or hints on how to proceed?
