Speed Up Pxe Boot in WDS and SCCM


If you are using PXE boot to deploy Windows Operating Systems in your environment. You probably might noticed that boot time is very slow. Technically, during PXE time, the boot image file is being loaded in the client’s machine, it shouldn’t take no more than a few minutes depending on the size of the boot.wim file and your network bandwidth.
