MRGRIM Posted November 25, 2009 Share Posted November 25, 2009 I'm looking for some help setting up a PXE booting server on my home network (I’ll be looking at something for business at a later date but my home network is the tester) I’ve looked a FOG and WDS and have settled on WDS which I have up and running. I found a guide that took me through syspreping an XP system I have (Was a VM) and managed to run wdscapture.exe which uploaded the XP Image to the WDS server. I then PXE booted a laptop and applied the image (laptop has no CD drive – which is the main reason I’m looking to do this) however as you’d guess it blue screened during boot. What I need rather than applying an image is simply provide the base XP install files, does anyone know how to do this? I did try running wdscapture.exe just after an the installer had copied the files to the drive, however it doesn’t see the drive volume (something to do with registry settings that only get applied after a sysprep is run) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
