Hi dragonlegs

Message on client console 
Windows could not start due to an error while booting from a RAMDISK. Windows failed to open the RAMDISK image 

Corrective action
This message indicates that the Remote Boot Server Pre-Boot Execution Environment (RBSPXE) server was unable to locate the file on the server. For example, the specified image file name is incorrect or the image file was not copied into the designated TFTP downloads path. Ensure that the file is named correctly and is present in the TFTP downloads path.
