I have an operating Windows deployment server with almost 20 images available, including windows7,8 and 10 wims.
I have created a new windows 10 image, sysprepped it, captured it and added it to the WDS server in an existing image group.
Now when I PXEboot and select any boot image, the boot image loads, disks are partitioned, but when it gets to installing the OS a message "No images are available" appears. When I delete the newly added image, everything works fine again.
I have attached the setupact.log file from a failing machine.

The top deployment experts have advocated for a long time to only use WDS as the transport layer and use MDT (Microsoft Deployment Toolkit) for everything else.

Agreed. With that said, is this an anniversary update image?
