First of all configure this page.
Then Set the following DHCP scope options:


  • Predefined Option 43 – 010400000000FF
  • Custom-made Option 60 – String – PXEClient
  • Predefined Option 66 – IP or Hostname of the WDS Server (in our case
  • Predefined Option 67 – boot\x86\


PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout

When I trying to boot from LAN on Hyper-V machine I got “PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout”To solve this issue:

1- Ensure that WDS is running
2- Add option 066 to DHCP server and set this option’s value to the IP address or host name of WDS server
3- Add option 067 to DHCP server and set this option’s value to: boot\x86\
if still got this error go to your WDS server
1- Run regedit
2- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WDSServer\Parameters
3- Double click UdpPortPolicy and set value = 0
4- Restart the Windows Deployment Services service
if you still got this error
1- Open your WDS console
2- Right-click the server, and then click Properties
3- Click Network, increase the UDP Port range to 4000 ports.
The supplied kernel information version is invalid

I just came across this issue as well, I wonder if it’s something to do with the fact our WDS server is still 2012R2 and not 2016…

Create a capture image made from the 2016 server boot.wim.

When you try to boot the image via PXE, you see the white status bar filling up, but suddenly the error appears: “0xc0000001, a required devices isn’t connected.”

  1. Open WDS
  2. Right-click your server in the left pane and open properties.
  3. Open tab “TFTP” and change the maximum block size to e.g. 1024.
  4. untick “Enable Variable Windows Extension” too
  5. Restart your WDS server.
