PXE Boot Issue

Well, yesterday(03/26/2019) I came across a PXE boot issue which seemed to come out of the blue. I would start up a system and try to PXE boot. The error I would get was “A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed.” This would happen not that far into the boot process. Of course it was not happening on a Hyper-V test VM and not on older systems so I suspect it was an issue with newer versions of the BIOS on both the HP and Dell. The Dell was a new model. Overall what seems to have fixed it was to go into the WDS properties on the server and change the TFTP settings to what I have below. Trying to locate the issue and what the fix was, could cause me to start drinking if I was into using that as my crutch. Computer gaming is where it’s at. 😀
