I've been trying to set SCCM 2016 up so I can use it to deploy OSs via PXE boot. But I just CANNOT get my client machines to boot correctly. It keeps booting to WDS and not SCCM. I enabled PXE boot (all options and password) on the distribution point, enabled DHCP on a separate server, and distributed both boot images and enabled PXE support on them as well. Also, when I create the Task Sequence and go to distribute it, it allows me to deploy it (PXE and boot media only), but does NOT give me any distribution points to distribute it to. After hours of rebuilding my VM network (Windows Server 2016 Standard running in a VMWare Workstation 14 environment), reinstalling and re-configuring everything, I STILL can't get my client machines to boot correctly. Do I even need WDS installed? If so, how am I supposed to configure it for SCCM PXE boot? Do I configure it before or after I install SCCM? I just can't seem to find a nice, clear, easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide on how to properly set all this up. PLEASE HELP!!!

Thanks! I'll try that, but what features of SQL do I need for this to work? I have the 2012 evaluation.

Ok. I followed the guide step-by step. After I install SCCM do I need to install WDS and DHCP roles? If so, how do I configure these?

OK. So I enabled PXE on the distribution point (all options and set the password). I then distributed the x86 and x64 boot images and enabled PXE on both. I then created the task sequence and deployed it (made available to media and PXE). Then, I tried booting my client machine but DHCP wasn't responding so I went into WDS and enabled the PXE response to respond to ALL clients. After that, I booted the client again and this time it responds. I pressed F12 to continue but got an error code: 0xc0000098. I then set my DHCP option 66 to the IP of my SCCM server and option 67 to smsboot\x64\pxeboot.com but keep running into the same exact thing. Why???

Sorry but this topic is beyond my ken...the best I could do was to link you to what I thought might be pertinent data.

 

Hold on...one of our members may provide more useful assistance :).

Update:

I finally got rid of the 0xc98 error. I created a task sequence and deployed it to the Unknown Computers collection (only media and PXE). Then I booted my client machine (64-bit) and this time it keeps saying:
 

PXE Boot aborted. Booting to next device...
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Operating System not found

Update:
 
I fixed it. I just needed to wait for the unknown computers (x64 and x86) to show up in the collections which is where I deployed the task sequence to. Thanks for the help!
