You can't do it with the WDS GUI, but you can use some of the stuff in WDS to create bootable media: http://www.eversity.nl/blog/2012/05/windows-deployment-services-how-to-create-a-bootable-deployment-iso/

While not a direct answer to your question (it looks like Adam beat me to that anyways), it is worth nothing that *most* deployment experts do not use WDS standalone.  WDS is a back-end engine that drives SCCM or MDT.  And MDT is *free.*

One of the big benefits of MDT is that it can create a WIM file with all necessary drivers injected to get you going, and that can be easily imported into WDS and kicks off the install. So it uses WDS, but gives you a ton more flexibility.

But it *also* can optionally create a boot ISO, which also has all of the necessary drivers and files injected to kick off the MDT installation without needing PXE at all. And making a bootable DVD or USB stick with the ISO is trivial and doesn't take the hoops that the "native" WDS-only solutions require.  I'd strongly look at MDT as it'll save you a ton of headache in deployment and troubleshooting.

I found a solution. We can create discover image from Boot file in WDS and then we can boot it to media.
