SCCM 2012 R2 PXE not working

Having a lot of trouble getting the PXE boot going. I keep getting this error:



I'm trying to set this up in a production environment where we already have SCCM 2012 SP1 running the way we want but thought I would give R2 a go. I have tried to set this up 3 different ways each having to restart the installation from scratch with a new VM and neither have worked.

I am installing this on a fresh VM using Server 2012 R2 and have installed all prereqs along with Windows ADK 8.1.

So here are the ways I've tried to get it going:

1st method: I installed SCCM first, then WDS manually and then enabled PXE boot from the DP.
2nd method: I installed WDS first, configured default settings and pointed the remoteinstall folder to D:\, then installed SCCM and then enabled PXE boot from the DP.
3rd method: I installed SCCM first and enabled PXE boot from the DP which then installed WDS automatically.

Neither of these methods have worked.

All 3 of these methods created the SMSBoot folder and populated it with the required file, I can even see the boot.wim's in the correct folders.

Here are the other things I've done:

Made sure both x86 and x64 boot images are distributed.
I've removed PXE from the DP and re added it.

The DHCP server is on a seperate VM, I've also tried adding in options 66 and 67 on the DHCP server with and without these options but still no luck.

What am i doing wrong?

    I am running into the same issue and I have been troubleshooting this problem for days, but supposedly there are 3 options for resolution:
    1.  Reinstall wimgapi.msi located in \\SMS_SITE\wim\wimgapi.msi
    2. Or change WDS server to another SCCM site without ADK installed. (and of course change scope 66 to reflect the new IP)
    3. Use boot media
    From what I here, MS knows about the issue and is working on this, but could be weeks....

    remove the console from your machine if it's the same box as the pxe/wds. then go to wds and restart the service. install the console on another machine.

    Thanks for posting that link, so ye i think that PXE boot simply doesn't work yet, perhaps they are working on a patch to get these going.
     
    I also can't find any blogs or videos of Server 2012 R2 working with SCCM 2012 R2 using PXE / WDS.
