WDSClient PXE boot error
Posted on 2014-09-17
I'm using an onboard NIC for image deployment, but I am getting an error through PXE. This error is occurring through windows 7 Pro Service Pack 1 version 6.1.7601. I am able to use Windows 8.1 and Windows 2012 boot images to boot into my install images without this error occurring. I have tried different Windows 7 boot images sources. I am trying to capture an image from a Windows 7 Pro reference machine and I understand I need to capture from a similar boot image? I am trying right now to see if I can capture the win7pro image with a win2012 boot image. Please help.
The steps are:
1. the WDS server is found through the Client's PXE, and i choose my ImageBoot file option
2. the server downloads boot data to my client
3. the setup environment starts (blue/green bkgrnd)
4. an error message dialog is displayed, "WdsClient: An error occurred while obtaining an IP address from the DHCP server. Please check to ensure that there is an operational DHCP server on this network segment."
