Hi Guys,

I have setup the following for the customer:

Primary Site Server with Server 2008 R2 SP1, SQL 2012 & SCCM 2012 SP1
Required Software: ADK & MDT 2012


I have Captured & deployed using PXE Boot to Unknown Computers Windows 7 64 Enterprise to HP 2570P and HP 8570P no problem.

But get no joy with the HP8300SFF. I have check all the logs and have just gone around in circles with drivers, as looking at blogs that what it is telling me:

Do I need to source Windows 8 WINPE 64 Bit Drivers for this model for it to work???

Thanking You

How far does it get, does it allow you to PXE boot into the WinPE environment?

If you find it loads the WinPE environment and fails shortly after, this is normally a NIC driver issue. If this is the case, find the NIC drive for the HP 8300 SFF and import it into SCCM. Right click the driver, edit then choose boot images.

Import Driver and Select Edit -> Boot Images
Now select the boot image you would like to inject the driver into, and click OK. Keep the "update distribution points when finished" ticked.

Add the driver to the required boot image
Wait until the content has been distributed to the DP and try PXE booting the HP 8300 SFF again.

I've just checked and it looks like HP have a specific package titled "HP Client WinPE 4.0 x86 and x64 Driver Pack" which covers the HP 8300 SFF and other HP models.

HP Client WinPE 4.0 x86 and x64 Driver Pack

This suggests to me it is indeed a driver issue, try importing the drivers included in the package. My gut feeling is, it'll be the x86 NIC driver. Mainly because that's what I've had the most issues with in the past...

Hi Guys,

Still no joy with HP 8000, 8200 & 8300 Desktops. Laptops deploying perfectly. Create a collection for 3 desktops and I am getting the following in the smspxe.log

No advertisement for collection

Is this usually a nic problem??
