Problems booting/installing Win 10 from 2016 WDS using iPXE
Hello,

I'm been having trouble PXE booting/installing Windows 10 images inside of RHEL 7.4 KVM VMs. After going through an exhaustive trouble-shooting process, I believe I've found a compatibility issue between RHEL's KVM VM boot loader, iPXE v1.0.0+, and my Server 2016 WDS system.

The breakthrough in my testing involved attempting to PXE boot/install to a bare metal system (which normally works just fine) using the iPXE boot disk (http://ipxe.org/download), the boot fails in the exact same way as it does within the RHEL KVM VM environment.

To get my iPXE 1.0.0+ systems to boot/install from the WDS server, I have to type in:

iPXE> chain tftp://172.16.0.1/boot\\x86\\wdsnbp.com

Does anyone know if there's a compatibility issue between iPXE v1.0.0+ and WDS? Does anyone know of a workaround for this issue? I'd prefer to be able to boot iPXE 1.0.0+ systems without any user intervention.

Thanks!
