WDS deploy XP

Hi there,

we have installed WDS on our server 2003 standard edition (running in mixed mode with RIS)

we have managed to create a boot wim and a capture wim and successfully taken an image of 1 pc.

when we try and deploy the image back to the same pc that we imaged, we get an error saying that no images are available. but if we manually use the imagex command the image applies fine.

we've done loads of surfing and don't believe it to be a HAL issue as its deploying to the same pc that was imaged? we have turned on architecture discovery and that reveals that the HW is x64 (but the image was x86 - is this the problem?)

the PC is a Dell Optiplex 755 with the latest BIOS and network drivers provided (we also have a Dell 760 that refuses to even take a capture wim because of the network drivers.... anyone heard anymore on Dell's supposed driver update on this model?)

in the setupact/setuperror log we just get no images are available 0x80070002 & gle=0x00000002

any help really would be appreciated.

we have just tried a vista image and again it says no images are available.

Its looking like their is something mis-configure in the server settings? can anybody shed anymore light please?

event ID 260, source WDSIMGSRV shows with error information 0x5 but I cant seem to find any meaningful information about this.

thanks

the remote installation share must have authenticated users as modify permission.

we were explicitly naming the user on the share for security reasons, but for some microsoft reason, this isn't acceptable!

This worked for me too.  I've been messing with this for the past two days and nobody seemed to have had the answer anywhere else.  Setting the Remote Installation share for the Authenticated Users to "modify" worked!
