  1. Can't get TFTP Functioning Properly

    Thanks for the reply. I decide to go back to basics and did the following: - New NIC - Loaded TFTPD64 - Used its own internal DHCP server - Had my menu file pointed at my PXE boot image This time the results were slightly different. I looked like the workstation tried to execute the menu file but then produced the follwing error "mba api not found" Now, I've been using a PXE builder tool from EMBOOT for about 10 years now. Its version 1.20. I'm wondering if its just too old support execution from a server 2008 and also given its a 64bit o/s. Does anybody know a suitable alternative I could test. I'm basically just imaging DOS FDD's that contain network boot code. Thanks
  2. Hi, I have brandnew box with Windows Server 2008 R2. I'm having issues getting TFTP clients to load from it correctly. DHCP is on the same server with the following options set in the scope: 043 Vendor Specific 060 PXEClient 066 Boot Server Name 067 Boot File Name DHCP seems to be working fine. I see the PXE Client get an IP, Default Gatway and PXE Boot File name. When it attempts to download the file the following error message appears PXE-E79: NBP is too big to fit in free base memory" So far I have tried three different servers: -TFTPD -SolarWinds -WinAgents All produce the same results. Firewall is off and I have nothing else on the switch except the two machines. The server doesn't have the WDS role installed. I have tried various PXE boot files which I know are working on other deployements. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks
