When establishing a PXE service point, a default shared folder, called SMSPXEIMAGES$, is created to store boot images. Before using PXE to initiate operating system deployments, you must make the required boot images available on the PXE service point.

Use the following procedure to add boot images to the PXE service point.

To add boot images to the PXE service point

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Operating System Deployment / Boot Images.

  2. Run the Manage Distribution Points Wizard by right-clicking the boot image you want to add to the PXE service point, and then select Manage Distribution Points.

  3. On the Welcome page, click Next.

  4. On the Select Destination Distribution Point page, specify the task you want to perform, and then click Next.

  5. On the Package page, select the PXE service point you want to copy the image to, and then click Next.

    The PXE service point displays in the list with the associated SMSPXEIMAGES$ shared folder displayed in the path.
  6. On the Completion page, verify the boot image you are copying to the PXE service point, and then click Next.

  7. On the Summary page, click Next.

  8. To close the wizard, click Close.
