iPXE and WDS Config

Just to add that these instructions can be "improved"

There is nice wiki here:

But that only gives the TS menu (or one can escape it using Auto-clicker)
But this presents another problem, as the machine downloads and reboots to .wim specified in TS (which negates the initial gain of the fast boot!)

And if all we need to do is a quick clone, then we can use different patching entries: (where WINPE.SP10010C.WIM is boot image to be used with deployed TS)

echo ** Patching Ramdisk
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control" /v PEBootType /t REG_SZ /d "Error" /f
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control" /v SystemStartOptions /t REG_SZ /d " MININT RDIMAGEOFFSET=8192 RDIMAGELENGTH=3161088 RDPATH=NET(0)\\SMSIMAGES\\SP10010C\\WINPE.SP10010C.WIM" /f
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control" /v FirmwareBootDevice /t REG_SZ /d "ramdisk(0)" /f
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control" /v PEBootTypeErrorCode /t REG_DWORD /d "2147942413" /f

rem === For UEFI PXE boot the following lines are also needed! ===
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PXE" /v DHCPServerACK /t REG_BINARY /d "" /f
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PXE" /v BootServerReply /t REG_BINARY /d "" /f

This way there is no need for TS engine to do anything else, but just carry on the TS itself)

TsmBootstrap.ini with Unattended=true is required

One can of course argue that there is no PXE Deployment record for machine in SCCM DB, but I rather have this for the speed of initial boot
