Windows 7 WDS deployment

    Question

  • I have installed a Windows 7 Enterprise reference image. I have added a Windows 7 boot image on my WDS server and created a capture image, I have added the Ethernet and the storage driver to the boot image. When I PXE boot the refernce computer with the capture image the WINPE is not loading, the green bar runs from side to side for a sec. and then black screen, I have tried to leave the computer for some hours but still black screen.

    Any idears?

  • Hi,

    I consider this issue can be caused if the driver you added into boot image fail to install.

    Please try the suggestions in this article:

    Error message when you start a PXE client to connect to a WDS server on a Windows Server 2003 SP1-based computer or on a Windows Server 2008-based computer: "WdsClient: An error occurred while starting networking"

  • I have resolved the issue by exporting the capture image mounting and unmount it with dism and added it to WDS again.
