WDS and iPXE not getting along

WDS and iPXE not getting along
We have recently setup a new WDS server on Windows Server 2012 R2. It is working well with our physical machines, but I cannot our VMs running on Proxmox to boot.

iPXE appears to download WDSNBP correctly, but it doesn't progress past that. I have checked and changed all of the settings I know of to get it working.

I've attached a screenshot of the error I'm receiving.

I'd really like to get PXE booting working on our VMs for image creation.

Thanks!

RE: WDS and iPXE not getting along
I would recommend you try to use wimboot instead of WDSNBP. It's more capable and should work with VMs without issues. See these HOWTOs for details:

http://ipxe.org/wimboot
http://ipxe.org/howto/winpe
http://ipxe.org/howto/sccm

Also, why do you have two backslashes (%5C) between the path parts? That seems like an error.

RE: WDS and iPXE not getting along
Thank you for your reply. I'm not sure this will accomplish what I need.

I have been able to successfully get wimboot and WinPE working. I'd like to use the Virtual Machines to create and captures new images to deploy to physical machines. Can I use wimboot to boot our WDS environment? I can't seem to find documentation on it.

Okay,
I thought through the whole process and I think I have it working using wimboot.

Thanks!
