SP2 - WDS gives PXE boot problem

    I just upgraded the server 2003 running RIS to SP2. I have run through
    all the steps I can find to finish the conversion to WDS (mixed mode). It
    appears it's running as it is supposed to in mixed mode.

    When I boot any PXE client, I get the following error messages:
    PXE-T01: File not found
    PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - File not Found

    I added a DCHP helper address, that points to the WDS server as the TFTP
    server, but that didn't help. Any ideas? I hate to roll back to SP. I want to
    be able to let a
    remote client boot like it did before I applied SP2. Thx.

    If you don't have a Vista DVD, you're not going to be able to work outside of
    Legacy mode.

    To return to Legacy mode, run WDSUTIL /Uninitialize-server at a command

    This did the trick.
