    SCCM 2012 OSD stuck on PXE boot

    Hi,

    I have setup a New SCCM setup.

    I have my required WIM file and i have created a task sequence. I have configured my x86 boot image to "deploy this boot image from the PXE service point" I have uploaded all this to a distribution point. I have deployed the task sequence to a machine where my test machine already lives. It had a previous install of windows on and has been talking to SCCM for a couple of weeks.

    When i PXE boot i get the attached.

    Any thoughts

    So does the machine you are trying to pxe boot already exist in the database?

    Well, I would have thought that if you advertised the TS to the machine it would just pick it up and run it without the need to PXE boot it?
    Unless I am mistaken, I use PXE to add new machines to SCCM but advertise TS to existing machines to reimage.

    Is it just stopping at that screenshot? or does it move on to the next bootable device?

    Do you have Active Directory System Discovery enabled? and has that found your pc or have you manually added it?

    I would like to use PXE on all machines ideally. Have i missed something here

    The machine reboots. I have system discovery working and it found the machine and installed the client ages ago.

    Thanks

    Just a thought have you had any machines PXE booting with SCCM? I had a similar problem early on and the DHCP was not configured correctly options 66 and 67. If that is ok have you tried restarting the wds service? failing that try clearing the required pxe deployments and restarting wds service/

    This is a good site to read through Configuration Manager 2012 - www.windows-noob.com

    However option 66 should be your sccm server name maybe "SCCM-01"
    and option 67 should be the location of your boot file i.e. REMINST/SMSBoot/x64/pxeboot.com

    You have installed WDS?

    I have been on an SCCM coruse but PXE was covered at all.

    Do i use the x64 image even though i am using a mix of x86 and x64?

    I have installed WDS.

    Also am i required to deploy the task sequence to a collection. If any machines are turned on will they see this in the software center? My aim is to be able to PXE and reimage problem machines at any time.

    Thanks

    Both boot images need to be distributed (I use the x64 to boot though)

    I am probably not much further along than you but lets see what we can sort out for you.

    Deploy the TS (Task Sequence) to a test collection with a pc to try out first just so you know all is good without re-imaging an entire suite and getting it wrong. I have found (and this might be wrong) that I have had to visit each machine for the image to be deployed initially by SCCM ( I am playing around with Required TS as we speak) The TS can be hidden from the software center when you create it.

    Hopefully that will get you on your way but any questions fire away.

    I do this: using Multiple Task Sequences via PXE - Troubleshooting, Tools, Hints and Tips - www.windows-noob.com
    Therefore I can pxe boot a machine and choose a TS to run.

    (yes this is for 2007 but I believe it is the same)
