Error53: No Boot File name received ( PXE)

Last Modified: 2015-12-07
Dear Experts,

I have recently Build new WDS server 2008 R2 and install WDS role on it along with config part. WDS server is on  my remote site and it is VM machine. I have build the reference computer with windows 7 64 bit along with all required software.
WDS server and Refrence computer are no same domain.
After the sysprep when I run the F12 PXE boot is returning me following error ( error 53: NO Boot filename Received ) . I  have done research on it but still cannot find solution for this.

Please advice how to fix this issue to capture the image and deploy on target machine.
