I am having a problem with SCCMs PXE OS Deployment Feature and am hoping someone has seen this problem and can advise me how to go about resolving it.

I am able to PXE-Boot to Windows PE without incident as can be seen below.

However, about 30 seconds after the preparing network connections message flashes across the WIN PE window, the server reboots and
goes right back to the PXE-Boot screen where the process begins, and starts all over again.

So, I am unable to actually deploy an operating system to this new bare bones server.

This problem happens regardless of whether or not I use a Windows 2003 Server or Windows XP Custom Made Capture Image (image.wim file) , or a Windows 2008 Server, 2008 Server R2, or Windows 7 image.wim file taken directly from the CD (and placed on a file share of course).

The x64 boot image I created has the Network Card and all relevant drivers on it as placed by clicking Add Drivers to Boot Images shown below.

and then adding those drivers to the PXE-Boot image and then updating the distribution point as shown below.

The details of the task sequence I created and applied to the Deploy OS collection can be seen below.

Honestly, everything looks kosher in the task sequence, so I am at a complete loss as to what could be causing the problem.

I am hoping someone has seen this problem and can advise me how to go about resolving it.
