Copying image files to the TFTP server (PXE)

You copy the WinPE boot image to the TFTP server so that the provisioning process can use it with the PXE provisioning technology.

The "image file" is actually a directory containing several separate files. When you run CreateWinPE2_x.vbs or CreateWinPE5_1.vbs, it creates this directory in the path specified by DestDir. This new directory has the name specified by BootDir and contains the image files. For example if you specified a BootDir name of_ boot_2_0 (the recommended name for the directory if using WinPE 2.0), the script creates the boot_2_0 image in DestDir:

C:\BMC_BL\tmp\boot_2_0
BCD
boot.sdi
WinPE.wim

To copy boot image files to the TFTP server

To place the image files on the TFTP server, copy BootDir and its contents to the tftproot directory on the TFTP server. For example:

C:\tftproot\boot_2_0
BCD
boot.sdi
WinPE.wim

Note

The BLAdmin role must be granted Read and Write access to the TFTP root directory and its contents, including boot image folders and all image files in the folders.
