I require the hotfix KB975710 (Operating system deployment over a network by using WDS fails in Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Server 2008 R2).

I would rather not have to contact Microsoft to download such a small fix.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Thanks for the info but the Win 7 version doesn't work on Server 2008. I was able to find the fix in a service pack so I think we just need to make the reg fix.

Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page...

Also, the reg info

This hotfix introduces a new registry subkey. This new subkey lets you customize the TFTP block size before the customized value in BCD store takes effect.

To resolve this issue, install this hotfix on the affected WDS servers that are running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. Then, customize the TFTP block size by creating the following registry value on each affected server:
MaximumBlockSize
 This value has the following properties:

Location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\WDSServer\Providers\WDSTFTP

Name: MaximumBlockSize
Type: (REG_DWORD)
Value range: 512–1456
Base: (Decimal)


For more information about how to make these changes on each affected server, see the following TechNet articles:•WDS TFTP Server: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753134(WS.10).aspx
