    Hi everyone! Great site here, I was able to use it to set up WDM on Server 2008 R2, including necessary steps to get (I hope) PXE enabled with a Server 2003 DHCP server.

    I’ve successfully used WDM to pull an image off a V90L Windows XP Embedded thin client, so I’m reasonably sure that WDM is set up and configured properly. Not so sure about the PXE environment (but Rapport HTTP and the FTP server check out okay according to the tests the installation articles say to run).

    What I am having trouble with is this V30L thin client with Windows CE. I thought I’d downloaded the latest Windows CE 6.0 image from Wyse.com for the V30L, but when I create a package to make it update at next startup, the V30L boots and I end up with PXE-E78 : cannot locate boot server – even though it already received an IP address and is looking at the proper server IP for PXE.

    Perhaps I am making the package incorrectly. This is a used V30L system that was installed at Suburban Propane (I can tell because the Wyse label sepcifically says so on it) but I’m wondering if I’ll even be able to change the configuration on this system – is this pre-confgiured and locked down for Suburban Propane because they are a large Wyse customer?

    Any insight would be helpful, thank you.

    Is this an isolated network? Do you have another PXE server running?
    What option tags are defined on the DHCP server?
    Does the client show “Rapport PXE” at the PXE request?

    Thank you for taking some time to help me.

    It’s not isolated from other traffic, but there are no alternate PXE servers running.

    Scope Options (Server 2003 R2 SP2 DHCP Server):
    043: 06 01 07 08 07 00 0E 01 0A 01 01 13 09 05 00 0E 02 52 42 0A 02 00 52 FF
    060: PXEClient

    Client does not show “Rapport PXE” at the PXE Request. It gets the proper IP address of the Rapport server from the vendor specific hex code entered above (10.1.1.19) and displays that as it’s searching for a PXE server, but then gives the “PXE-E78 : cannot locate boot server” code and exits PXE, booting the config currently loaded in flash.

    Can you test without OT 43 and 60?

    Not sure if you figured this out or not, but I’ve written up a quick how-to after piecing info together from all over,

    That is pretty helpful, I thank you for the time. I ended up simply buying another flash card with a base image on it online and replaced it. Then I decided if it was going to be this difficult to manage and Wyse was unable to provide support for less than $3,000 a year starting (no pay per incident available) and they didn’t want to support the older units, then I wouldn’t go this route. I’ve decided to stick to projects like Thinstation.org and am now giving Windows 7 Thin PC a try.
