    WDSClient: there was a problem initializing wds mode

    Hi All,

    Hope you can help me with this one. I've just built a new server with Windows Server 2008 and setup WDS. Imported a boot image to deploy a image already captured to a workstation and i'm getting this error message "WDSClient: there was a problem initializing wds mode". The image deploying is just Windows XP SP3. This problem is on just one type of machine. I can deploy other machines fine except this one it's a Acer Veriton Z280G. I have injected the nic drivers into the boot image the machine is getting an ip address. I've searched online but can't find a fix for my error.

    On WDS have you created a discover image? right click the boot image and create a discover image then select that on the PXE boot screen, that fixed it for me
