windows deployment services won't start RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi. I have a server loaded onto Windows deployment Services and images are created. However, when I go to services and try to start WDS, it won't start. I get error message: Windows could not start the Windows Deployment Services Server on Local Computer.   My computer is windows 2008.

    Also, Because it won't start, will this affect pxe booting?

     

    Thanks.

  • PXE booting will not work if the service is not running. Are there any messages in the event log related to WDS?

  • In the event log, it just says "An error occurred while trying to start the Windows Deployment Services Server?"
