One more question - are you W2008 on an NLB cluster?

I tried the suggestion of the link but still nothing. My 2008 server is not on a NLB cluster.

WDS depends upon DHCP for PXE so it seems to be a problem there. Could you describe your dhcp settings?

My DHCP options are as follow:

I have option 66 and 67 checked. If I removed these two options... DHCP does not work on the client machine. The DHCP and WDS are both on the same windows 2008 server.

I solved the issue by deleting the WDS and reinstalling it. The problem was that when WDS asked me to add the windows image and boot image, I said no and when I manually added them, it was having issues. Thank you all for the help.
