  • Not able to install xp or win7 32 bit in windows server 2008 r2 (WDS)

    hi,

    i am not able to install windows xp or win7 32 bit Operating system through WDS in client system, in WDS it is listing all the x86 and x64 operating system in install images but when u boot from the client u only have the options of x64 bit install images, so what could be the possible problem, i can install x64 bit in client machines but not x86. plz help me out in this.

    Are you sure that you have the right boot and install images in WDS? Are you sure you're selecting the right ones when booting the client?

        i am not having any problem with 64bit even when i capture a 64bit win xp there is no problem, but when i capture a 32bit win xp it shows in the install images list of wds but it does not show up when i boot from a client system.

          Do you have a 32-bit boot image available?

                Click on the black and white yin-yang icon at the top right of a post and follow instructions

                Glad you got that fixed -- sounds as if you had a corrupt boot image
