– SOLVED (See Below)

1 2008 R2 server acting as DC, WSUS, WDS, and SCCM 2012 SP1 server. Running in a VM Workstation V9.01. VMNet 2 is assigned to both the SCCM server and Client VM. MDT 2012 has been added and Boot Images have been created and staged in DP. Boundaries created for both the IP Subnet ( and AD. Clients PXE boot, but then get the “AbortPXE” packet.


The server “SMSPXE.log” is showing the following:
00:0C:29:60:B8:16, 428B4D56-B0E3-A0C3-1316-1286D560B816: could not find boot image S0100009
00:0C:29:60:B8:16, 428B4D56-B0E3-A0C3-1316-1286D560B816: Not serviced.


As per the content status, the boot image is staged and raring to go..


To fix the issue, I needed to do the following:
1. Tick the “Deploy this boot image from the PXE-enabled dis…” box from the “Data Source” tab of the Boot Image used in the Task Sequence.
2. Remove the “Distribution Point” role from “Servers and Site System Roles”.
3. Re-Add the “Distribution Point” role and re-distribute all packages.

    Just make sure you’ve removed the old Boot Images from the Distribution Points. Right click on the old boot image, go to the Content Location tab and remove from all DP’s. You shouldn’t have to re-install the DP’s.
