    Just out of curiosity how did you do the deploy? I've been working on PXE booting and doing an automated install with little success

    A combination of WDS and MDT2010 this time,

    In the past we've always used symantec ghost solution suite with RIS, but i thought it was getting a bit long in the tooth this year. Very impressed with WDS and it's use of unattended files, at the moment i select an image then press nothing until windows is installed, then i have to select about 3 different options to do with locale and time/date (it doesn't seem to automate this for some reason, it'll only automate that stage when i have the locale set to en-us which i don't want!) next thing i know im on the logon screen and i can add it to the domain then walk away.

    Is it just the PXE boot your having issues with? Have you set options 66 and 67 in DHCP?

    Very much so, what do I need to set and where?
    I tried setting Option 67 in the DHCP scope and pointing it to the file that I had created for PXE booting but the computer I was trying to boot from just said "no file found" or something to that effect.

    Any ideas?

    This is what i have mine set to:

    066 Boot server host name: <IP OF WDS SERVER>
    067 Booffile name: boot\x86\pxeboot.com

    The "boot\x86\pxeboot.com" is the directory within the remoteinstall folder that is created when WDS is setup, mine is the default path which should probably be the same as yours assuming it's a standard WDS install

    On WDS itself check your options under the PXE response tab and the boot tab, also are you installing this on a DHCP server? If so you'll want to set something on the DHCP tab of WDS, if it's just a standard server though those settings shouldnt matter

    EDIT: oh the PXE server should also be an authorized DHCP server..i think
