ConfigMgr 2012 Beta 2: PXE Booting for OSD

Posted by Trevor Sullivan on 2011/06/28

I recently was trying to PXE bootstrap an operating system deployment (OSD) job from a ConfigMgr 2012 Beta 2 PXE server, and was getting this message in the smspxe.log on the SCCM primary site server:

Warning: Matching Processor Architetcure Boot Image (0) not found

Yes, the typo / spelling error was in the log as well. On the client side, a VMware Virtual Machine, I got the messages:

PXE-E53: No boot filename received
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.


So, I validated that both my x86 and x64 boot images had been deployed to the distribution point. Even though they already were, I went ahead and incremented their version by performing a DP update. This still didn’t solve the problem, so I started poking through the properties of the boot images. It turns out that there’s a setting called: “Deploy this boot image from the PXE service point” on the “Data Source” tab of the boot image properties.


As soon as I checked this off, things started happening! I could finally PXE boot the client.

    you need to ‘check’ the box “deploy this boot image from the PXE Service Point” to make things work. not sure how it worked for you but please update this post.
