    how to use lan boot

    Hi,

    WDS use pxe boot.Please make sure and configure the pxe boot on the top of boot order in BIOS.And check this prerequisites list

    Prerequisites for configuring Windows Deployment Services

    1. If Windows Deployment Services is integrated with Active Directory, the server must be a member of an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain, or a domain controller for an AD DS domain. If Windows Deployment Services is installed in Standalone mode, it can be configured without having a dependency on Active Directory.

    2. There is an active DHCP server on the on Windows Deployment Services uses Pre-Execution Environment (PXE), which relies on DHCP for IP addressing.

    3. There is an active DNS server on the network.

    4. The server has an NTFS file system partition on which to store images.
