SCCM – An error occurred while trying to initialize the Windows Deployment Services image server. Error Information: 0xC1030104

February 17, 2012

Got the above error after updating the SCCM boot images with some network drivers.
The PXE service wasn’t running, because the Windows Deployment Service service had stopped.
When starting this service manually, the above error occured
Usually people remove and re-install the PXE Point sccm Role, and/or the WDS Windows role.
What worked for me was just to refresh the boot image packages on the server. Nothing more.
Then the WDS service would start properly, and PXE worked again.
So, if you get this error, first simply try refreshing the packages containing your boot images.
