.sdi boot image?

Augusto Alvarez

Hello everyone,

Im a little bit lost with WinXPe and creating an image to boot from a PXE
Server. I've created several WinXPe, modifying their components and I've
placed in secondary disks and get them to boot correctly. But what I really
want to do is to create a .sdi image with those images to upload it to
Remote Boot Manager and the clients (diskless) can boot from the network.

Can anyone help me with that? Is there an easy way to create a .sdi image?

Cheers!

There is no easy way. Although remote boot is not too difficult. The steps
are outlined in my book Windows XP Embedded Advanced, and the online help
cover this as well. The key steps are:

1. Make sure that you have the RAM disk Driver component in the image
2. You must run the image on the target system to get past FBA.
3. Once FBA is completed, copy the image back over to the development
machines and creat the final SDI file.

Thanks for the reply!

I'll be taking a look to that more deeply.

But I have another question, about DHCP. I've started to check on the DHCP
configuration for this environment and I found a problem. On the client
computer the message: "ProxyDHCP service did not reply to request on port
4011" appears, but in my DHCP server appears a valid lease give it to that
client. Searching for that problem, I found that the DHCP option 060
PXEClient must be disabled. But without this option the remote boot wont
work right? Can you tell me what is going wrong here?

Thanks!
