Thank you for your time. John Francis June 17, 2014 Only wish that you did not play the music in the background. That was really irritating. jdgaff June 17, 2014 You’re awesome, dude! Marvin Tempro June 17, 2014 Thank you. Excellent vid, clear, concise with enough detail and nice background music not distracting. You are an example for other educational vids on youtube. Leandro Matheus June 17, 2014 Great video, Chris H! Subscribing to your channel right now! fideladeniyi June 17, 2014 Excellent video, hope to see more vids on your channel ITSystemsAdmin June 17, 2014 GREAT CHANNEL/VIDEOS I SUB, VIEW, COMMENT & LIKE! Chris H. June 17, 2014 You’re absolutely right. After I uploading it and watching it, I felt the same way. In all of my new videos that are published after this one I stop the music after the introduction. I cut the music out for the rest of the video. When I get a chance I may re-edit this video and re-post it without the music when I have more free time. Jeremy Hewett June 17, 2014 Chris, Good videos, I enjoy watching them. I love the amount of detail you put into your videos as well as showing all the steps and speaking clearly. Keep up the good work, and I hope that you plan to do more videos soon. hvypetals June 17, 2014 Thanks Chris this really helps me out. Can i ask you i saw on another vid a guy made two entries in DHCP IPv4 server options – checking #66 – Boot Server Host Name and setting string value as the wds IP as well as #67 – Boot File Name – string value – bootx64wdsnbp.com. Did you configure that? Chris H. June 17, 2014 Thanks! I’m glad this video helped. aladinliverpool June 17, 2014 good video. but does it need music in the background? it doesn’t help when trying to concentrate on whats being said. peterfeixXx June 17, 2014 I’ve chosen a Win2012 Deployment Server as my final project for my 3year traineeship. Thanks alot for your tutorial. It was really easy to understand and a nice experience to see everything working almost flawlessly Just one thing you may can help me out with: While doing a PXE boot, I have to press the F12 key in order to get to the boot menu, otherwise it will skip and continues booting from HDD/VHD. Have this on hardware and virtual machines, first time I had to sysprep a second time 😀 Chris H. June 17, 2014 Thanks! I really appreciate it. Chris H. June 17, 2014 Thanks, I’m glad this video could help. On physical machines you have to press F12 no matter what to get it to PXE boot, it won’t do it automatically. On VMs you can disconnect your reference VHD, and put a blank one in its place. That way when you boot, the system will see a blank VHD and move on to PXE boot automatically. Chris H. June 17, 2014 Great question. I usually don’t have to adjust any settings in the DHCP manager when setting up WDS (from what I can remember). I usually have DHCP and all other components in place before activating WDS. I usually just select both boxes during WDS setup for DHCP option 60, and to not listen on port 67. Once again I do this because I run my DHCP server on the same machine. Chris H. June 17, 2014 Thanks Jeremy, I really appreciate your words of encouragement. charm_242 June 17, 2014 Great Job Bud, you saved my life. Nino Chavez June 17, 2014 Thank you, great video. Are there any other settings we need to add to the DHCP aside from the Option Name 060 PXEClient that is done automatically when installed or that should be enough ? Comments are closed.
