Hi.

I have been playing around with SCCM2007 on a win2k8 in vmware , for use with the various functions, i now however want to start with a fresh ( semi-fresh install) to ensure pxe boot, boot images etc are correct as it has been a little unstable and i want the original boot images as well.

Is there a particular way or process that i should uninstall to ensure that this has no effect on our single site / ad etc or can i just flick the switch on the vm and start again? Or can i just reinstall pxe servicepoint etc with the same effect?

Thanks.

Deinstall PXE Service Point, then deinstall the windows Deployment Services, repair your WAIK (files locates in following path: %ConfigMgrInstallDir%\WAIK.

Reinstall WDS and reinstall PXE Services Point.

This might fix your problem with the boot image.

Start the Setup. It appears a Wizard and then select repair WAIK, next, next, finish.

WAIK is automaticly installed if SCCM is installed
