you have to have 2 different boot images. One is for capturing and the other will be for applying the image remotely.

You need to find the install.wim under sources on a windows 7 dvd. That needs to be added to your boot images on WDS.

When that is finished and you choose PXE Boot you chould have 2 options now, be sure to choose the install option or however you named it.

so when you choose Windows 8 Setup from the PXE Boot menu it goes to the Capture image? or does it not give you a choice on the PXE Boot Menu?

ok, I think you need to delete the Windows 8 Setup boot image and re-add it. It needs to use the boot.wim file.

I would also check DHCP option 67 I believe? What do you have for that value?
