Part 8 is the first post of the Operating System Deployment section. It describes an important configuration of the Config Mgr Boot images and the method of enabling PXE support on the Distribution Point.
1. Boot Image - command line support
Browse to the boot images and check their properties
Tick the box the enable command support. This will allow you to press the F8 key while in Windows PE to open a command prompt. This is essential while developing an Operating System Deployment solution
Now distribute the Boot Images (both x64 and x86)
2. PXE Support
Browse to the server roles and right click the Distribution Point
Select PXE tab. Tick all the boxes to enable PXE support. It is important that you choose a complex password.
Windows Deployment Services is installed automatically as part of this process (if you have not already added the role as a prerequisite). See the RemoteInstall folders populating with system files as shown above. Note that if these folders remain empty you will not be able to PXE boot your computers.
