I have Server 2012 running on a hyper-v virtual machine. Installed on that virtual machine is Windows Deployment Services. I was trying to setup so i could PXE boot laptops to my existing MDT images.
My DHCP is not on the same server as WDS and has option 66 and 67 set correctly.
The client machine gets an IP from DHCP server and downloads the WDSNBP via TFTP.
After that on the client machine I get
WDSNBP stated using DHCP Referral.
Contacting Server: 192.168.1.207 (Gateway:0.0.0.0)
No response from Windows Deployment Services Server.
Selected boot device failed.
The MDT images work fine when booting from CD.
The virtual machine uses a virtual switch in hyper-v and that virtual switch has its own NIC on the host server which is plugged into the same switch as the client machine. Both are on the same vlan. I have an ip helper-address on the switch to point to the WDS server and the DHCP server.
Ive had linux FOG running on this network previously so PXE booting has worked on this network before.
Ive tried reinstalling WDS and only importing a boot image from a Windows CD but same error on client machine.
Is the virtual switch on hyper-v causing the issue ?
In event viewer I see it creates a buffer for wdsnbp.com
completes download of WDSNBP.com
deletes buffer for wdsnpb.com
Then the following client booted from PXE
It creates a buffer for pxeboot.com and completes the download
Deletes the buffer for pxeboot.com
and thats it in event viewer.
Tried boot.wim from both Windows 7 DVD and MDT custom image.
Tried adding drivers to boot image also.
