Event viewer is showing this.

An error occurred while trying to initialize provider WdsImgSrv from C:\Windows\system32\WdsImgSrv.dll. Windows Deployment Services server will be shutdown.
 
 Error Information: 0xC1030104

I have tried removing the PXE distro point and the WDS role and then readding does not work. Tried renaming the Remote install directory, still did not work. Made sure all registry edits were removed that refered to WDSserver before readdding the WDS role. Still did not work. Any other suggustions.

You can try the following:

 1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
 2. At the command prompt, type wdsutil /uninitialize-server, and then press ENTER.
 3. Move the WDS account to Active Directory in the new organizational unit.
 4. To reinitialize the WDS service, type wdsutil /initialize-server /reminst:{RemoteInstallFolder} at a command prompt, and then press ENTER.

In one of the tech net articles it says:

3.If this key exists at the specified location, ensure that the SYSTEM account used by WDSPXE has permission to read from the registry. To do this, right-click the WDSServer node, click Permissions, click SYSTEM, and then ensure that Full Control is selected.


Where is the node it is talking about.

This is what we ended up doing and this fixed the issue.

First try this before going through the full process as it may fix it.  
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc726654%28WS.10%29.aspx

If it does not, do the following.

SCCM
1)      Remove the PXE Service Point
a.       I removed the server but this may not be applicable if the SCCM server also serves as the PSP
2)      On the PXE server (if it exists) remove the WDS role
3)      Reboot
4)      Add the WDS role but do not set it up, just add it
a.       If it fails to start (Error: The description for Event ID 258 from source WDSIMGSRV cannot be found.)  Use the article I attached.
b.      Step 4 in the article.  Run wdsutil /uninitialize-server will run but it will error out, keep going on with the next command.  It is erroring out because we do not configure WDS, SCCM does.
c.       Once you’ve finished the wdsutil /initialize-server verify that the service has started.  It did for me so hopefully that’s all you need to do.
5)      Add the PXE Service Point role again within SCCM
6)      Wait about 10 minutes for SCCM to update to show that you have a new distribution point for your boot images
7)      In your boot images, re-add the distribution point and make sure it updates.
