Re: WDS boot images

How do you get a menu like that? I have 2 boot images in but it loads directly to an acronis winpe environment after pressing F12 to continue network boot. I don't even get a selection screen before that to choose win7 installation environment.

I would like to add some diagnostic stuff too like memory testing utilities, dell diagnostics or one of my WinPE ultimate boot cd's (great for fixing problems or scanning for malware).

Now that I'm back at work I can take a look at my DHCP server settings. I added these items to get PXE boot to work.

043 Vendor Specific - 01 04 00 00 00 00 ff
066 Boot Server Host Name - *ip address of WDS machine*
067 Bootfile Name - boot\x86\pxeboot.com

Then on the WDS server under Boot Images I have
Windows 7 Setup - x64 - Online - 2150 MB - 6.1.7600
Acronis WinPE x86 boot - x86 - Online - 1019 MB - 6.1.7600

I would of thought after hitting F12 during a PXE boot that I would see a menu like the OP with those two boot images in there. Then I could put a bunch of other things... Maybe PXELinux or WinPE based diagnostic live cd images?
