Error when trying to PXE boot a PC with Windows Deployment Services server.

When trying to PXE boot I am getting an error:

PXE-E53: No Boot File Name.

PXE-M03: Exiting Intel Boot Agent

I am getting these errors AFTER it had initially got an IP address and was talking to my WDS server. I was going through the steps to save my image, and I had to reboot. When I rebooted the client PC, I got these error messages.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

check the permissions on your tftp directory and the image file
it should be 777
your pxelinux.cfg directory should contain a configuration file with the client ip in hex
it should point to the boot image

Not sure what happened, but I was able to get into the wizard, but still cannot connect to my  WDS server.

I hit SHIFT+F10 to access a command prompt and did an ipconfig and am not seeing any network adapter information.
