SCCM 2012 RTM PXE not working… Warning: Matching Processor Architecture Boot Image (0) not found

So, i am working on setting up a System Center 2012 RTM test environment, all in VMware Workstation, on a 16 GB Dell Precision M4600 laptop.
After setting up a 2008 R2 SP1 DC and a 2008 R2 SP1 CU4 SQL Server, i started with my favourite product, Configuration Manager.
After the initial installation and some basic configuration of Boundaries, Service accounts, and Server Roles, i was ready for my first OSD TS.

However, when booting my test client (vmware workstation) for PXE boot, i didn’t receive any boot file name.

Into the logs then! The smspxe.log logfile on the SCCM 2012 server showed the following error:


Okay, that’s weird. After checking that the 2 default boot images (x86 and x64) were properly distributed to the DP, i opened the boot images themselves.
Clicking around on them i found this setting:
Wait..wut?
So, that’s a new one. Appearantly you have to explicitly enable a boot image to be used on a PXE service point.

Lets see the documentation on Technet about this new feature:Click here and then expand the item “To Modify the Properties of a Boot image”.
Here we see the option mentioned.
And some more information here, in the section “Distributing Boot Images to the Distribution Point
“.
Basically when you make the Boot Images availiable to a DP, they are only copied to the DP folders, and not to the Reminst share, which is used for PXE deployment.

      So if i understand correctly you sometimwes are able to press F12 to start PXE boot, and sometimes not?
      Then this sounds more like a problem in WDS then in SCCM.
      Is the client in the same subnet as the SCCM / PXE / DHCP servers?

    Thanks, after a few hours of head scratching, solved with a simple check box!

  4. rikkos2 Says:

    Oh yeah by the way, this action is no longer needed with SP1 for sccm. The checkboxes are then enabled by default 🙂

    Great !!! Checking the checkbox on the boot image solvedd my problem. Thanks a lot !!!
