One of the issues we troubleshoot the most in CSS are ConfigMgr PXE Service Point installs. This article is based on 4 years of experience troubleshooting hundreds of PXE Service Point installs. The end result is what we have found causes the majority of issues on PXE Service Points and what works on most (if not all) configurations. The article assumes that you are not trying to co-host the ConfigMgr PXE Service Point with stand-alone WDS on the same server. That is a topic for a completely different article…
A previous version of this article appeared over at the The Configuration Manager Support Team Blog site. That article was actually a major revision of the original article titled ConfigMgr 2007: Troubleshooting PXE Service Point Issues and WDS service not starting. The below is an updated version of the article and can be considered version 3 of the article. Besides some minor updates in syntax and formatting, it mainly contains one major new section covering co-hosting DHCP and WDS on the same server WITHOUT having to configure WDS. It also contains additional checks when R2 or R3 are installed.
