WDS: PXE Boot: File not found/TFPT Error – File not Found

Filed under: Microsoft Related — Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) @ 9:10 AM

Last year at my company (New Allied Eelctronics) , I configured RIS/WDS on my local LAN for XP base network intallation (As re installation of XP was on the rise, and we were short on XP CD) ,
I decided to setup my lan base installation server for XP.
After configuring WDS (in legacy mode) , I was getting a File not Found error when i attempted to PXE boot from any pc. This the error i was receiving.

PXE-T01: File not found
PXE-E3b: TFTP error – file not found


Turns out that RIS/WDS was looking for which didn’t exist in the remoteinstall\boot\x86 folder on my WDS Server.
So i simply reconfigured WDS to look for and then i was able to PXE boot. exists at D:\RemoteInstall\OSChooser\i386
