Press F12 to PXE boot from NIC
Obtains IP from DHCP range and can see bootfile name
Loads into PXE environment
Loads Windows Settings
Flashes something about Network Configuration/Initialisati
on then reboots
My first thought is NIC drivers, have added and removed various x86 and x64 drivers for XP, W7 and Vista into the boot images and driver pool for reference.
Checked permissions/security and have added a service account that has appropriate access to all locations it could be referencing.
Plenty of forums online advise to enable F8 for troubleshooting as they point towards a NIC driver/network issue, however I cannot get this functionality to work, and get the attached error
which may mean that the Distribution Points are not updating properly, so the drivers/configuration are not filtering through. I am stuck as to what could be causing this.
