How To Enable Network Boot To A Windows Deployment Services (WDS) Server Using PowerShell

Say goodbye to the USBs, CDs, or DVDs you are carrying around to deploy Windows images to your client computers and servers. In this Snip, Eric will demonstrate how to enable computers on your network to boot to their network interface card (NIC) and boot from your Windows Deployment Services (WDS) server using the PXE protocol. We will use the wdsutil tool to configure the WDS server to accept PXE requests then we will use the Set-DhcpServerv4OptionValue to configure the DHCP response to identify your boot server and boot file. Then we will boot up a test client and start a Windows 10 deployment over the network.

Prerequisites include: - Windows Deployment Server Deployed and configured - Microsoft DHCP Server - DhcpServer PowerShell Module
