I am using a Windows Server 2012 R2 WDS server.  I have successfully installed a custom wim file to a few different machines but I am having issues with a Dell Dimension E510 I choose the PXE boot via the notwork controller it find the server asks to press F12 which the others dont and server is not configured for says launching PXEboot.com brings up a blue screen for about 30 seconds restarts then displays initializing Intel boot agent FE v4.1.17 Beta-5 PXE 2.1 Build 084 (wfM 2.0)  Bootmger is missing press Ctrl+Alt+del to restart.  Any ideas?

PXE is just the network /USB boot operating system for imaging. When you are having issues such as a computer you are trying to image is not communicating with the PXE server or the PXE server cannot access hard drive on computer you add appropriate drivers to the PXE itself and rebuild. It does not matter what OS you are imaging.

Have you tried Microsoft Deployment Toolkit to add drivers.

First, I would make sure the NIC drivers and storage controller drivers are in the PXE image.
Also, make sure the drivers for the PXE are for the PXE version and not the windows version of the computer. This can cause serious issues like the wrong driver within windows.

I tried to add a vista image to the WDS server to no avail.  I am attempting to use a discover image I created one on the server but When I try and add it to a USB drive when the machine boots I get windows failed to start screen file: \boot\BDC Status: 0x000000e Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.  I am using the following page as a reference http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd637996.aspx

Now I used the windows 7 boot image to create the discover image not sure if that matters

The pxe operations themselves are ok with your config : you downloaded a network boot program, that made it possible to download a disk wim image in a ramdrive.
The problem you have is that your wim image seems not to be bootable:once it missed the bootmgr bootloader, the other time, the bcd folder. Investigate in these directions.
