    Windows provisioning issue: Server trying to boot without BCD

      Hey Everyone,

       

      We are having a problem trying to provision Win 2008 x64 using BBSA 8.1.0.295

       

      Our server PXE boots and requests some files, according to the log the paths and files should be in the right place. The server is simply proceeding to the screen in the attached screenshot. I am also attaching the console view while the server is booting.... right before it proceeds to the error screen.

       

      After some digging, I can see that the server requests the \Boot\BCD file from our TFTP but it doesn't appear that the TFTP server has time to send it before the server proceeds to try and boot with it.

       

      To explain this further here is a portion of the tftpsvr.log file, the interesting part is the end where you can see the request come in and then it just ends.

       

      Anyone have any idea why the server would try and proceed before the TFTP was able to send the necessary boot files.
