    What is the imaging software?

    Do the machines have UEFI instead of BIOS? If it is something like WDS the server needs to be on Server 2012 for UEFI.

    What about the other questions?

    What OS is the WDS server installed on?

    With Legacy BIOs you should be ok. I would look at upgrading to 2012 so you can use UEFI later down the line.
