Have you tried restarting the WDS service on the server?

Have you checked the architecture of your boot.wim against your image? If I recall, 64 bit wims can work for 32 bit images, but not the other way round.

I also found this thread that may help.

you have to add the capture to the install images and add a task sequence.. Suggest that you use MDT for your deployments and captures and use WDS only for the transport pxe layer.

How about creating a x86 install image and booting to that, to see if your new image populates; or you could build an x86 capture and redo the reference computer, maybe?

what is different with this install/capture.wim from the ones that you can see?

For the benefit of everyone an x86 boot.wim can load both x86 and x64 operating systems, the converse is not true. In fact industry experts suggest using an x86 boot.wim

As for using MDT over just WDS again industry experts in this field i.e. Johan Arwidmark (www.deploymentresearch) and Mikael Nystrom (deploymentbunny.com)  suggest that you do use MDT over WDS (they do tens of thousands of deployments a year) and are guest speakers at every teched that I've attended or had the chance to view the videos of, on this subject.

I have added a new  windows 7 x86 boot image
I configured the properties of the wds server to boot from both architectures:
x86 and x64

Last I added the drivers, now I can see my images wooo hooooo
