From a base Windows 10 64 bit Enterprise disk, I cannot boot into WDS 2008R2.
I get error;
WdsClient: An error occurred while obtaining an IP address from the DHCP server. Please check to ensure that there is an operational DHCP server on this network segment.
99/100 times that means a driver is missing.
So I download Network_Driver_KJTXR_WN32_126.96.36.199_A00 from Dell which is the correct version listed for Windows 10. Do a simple import and bam failures. These are unsigned<ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU> drivers making this 35 times more complicated.
I extract the drivers. I then extract the boot.wim right off the Windows 10 iso. I do a DISM import:
Make the following directories:
Place boot.wim in C:\Mount
elevated command prompt;
1: DISM /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\Mount\boot.wim /Index:1 /ScratchDir:c:\Scratch /MountDir:C:\Mount\BootWIM
2. DISM /Image:C:\Mount\BootWIM /Add-Driver /Driver:C:\Mount\Drivers /recurse /forceunsigned
3. DISM /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\Mount\BootWIM /Commit
The drivers are imported yay. Replace the boot.wim
Boot into the new file and same error.
I go to load the drivers by hand (shift-F10) - drvload (insert all 3 .inis) with the same 0x800070002 error.
I got mad and added the ENTIRE windows 10 cab into the boot.ini just to see what happens. Still has a DHCP error. DHCP is up because I have other hardware connecting to it.
So how do you get a 7040 working with WDS?
Are you putting your drivers in the right image within the .WIM? Try entering:
Dism /Get-ImageInfo /ImageFile:C:\path\to\your\image.wim
And see what all is in that file. You might be sticking the drivers in the wrong place.
Well this took a while ! For me it was a prob with the PCI-e SSD installed on the motherboard, installing WIN7 x64 no drivers for that.
So fails from scratch.
I am having a similar issue trying to boot to network for an SCCM deployment using 7040's, all other models work fine. Checked and double checked drivers etc, all look correct.
