PXE Boot problem: pxe-m0f: exiting intel boot agent

I am trying to perform a network boot so I can deploy images directly to the workstation using MDT.

The network is divided into 2 segments, with each segment having its own DHCP server and full communication between segments.

The WDS / MDT server is physically located in segment 1. I can do a PXE boot without issue and deploy my image.

However, on segment 2, when trying a PXE boot, the system searches for the DHCP information. I was having difficulty and make the appropriate definitons within DHCP.

The system in segment 2 now gets a an address:

client ip x.x.x.x
mask  x.x.x.x
dhcp ip x.x.x.x
gateway x.x.x.x

There is no value for TFTP.

All the address information is correct for x.x.x.x.

Is it not booting because TFTP information is missing?

I get the following after the line tftp.

pxe-m0f: exiting intel boot agent

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Could I be missing a parameter within the DHCP settings?

Thanks in advance.
