I recently captured a reference image from a PC. I sysprepped it and uploaded the install image to the WDS server. I was told to boot PXE but i only see the same capture boot images.

If I proceed it will only upload the image into WDS again. Am I missing something?

Am I performing the right tasks? Or am I suppose to create and unattend file?
