Does anyone has a clue towards the resolution.

This is a PXE error.
Are you actually trying to PXE-boot a client?

You may want to make sure that you updated the BIOS and/or PXE clode and that there are not too many option roms loaded (SCSI controller, iSCSI HBA, several NICs with PXE enabled...)

Your boot image is larger than the available RAM in your PC.  Either increase your RAM or create a smaller boot image.

Have you specified a ghost image as your boot program?
If so this is not the right way to go. Ghost or wim
 Images are not pxe bootable. You need a specific boot program that "mounts " the remote disks and boot off it.

Possibly there was something to do with the 3 com settings. I made changes to 3 COM and DHCP and since then things are working fine.

Thanks for all your help.
