    Hi

    I have just installed Acronis Snap Deploy 2.0, but i am unable to boot from PXE
    I have a DHCP server in the test network, but just a simple one with no configuration for BOOT file. I have installed all the components on one computer my laptop.

    When i boot one of the computers from PXE to create or deploy a image it stops on:

    Code:
    CLIENT MAD ADDR: MY MAC ADRESS GUID: MY GUID
    CLIENT IP: 192.168.1.52  MASK: 255.255.255.0
    DHCP IP: 192.168.1.1    PROXY IP: 192.168.1.78
    GATEWAY IP: 192.168.1.1
    
    Auto-select:
    
         Acronis Loader
    BOOT SERVER IP: 192.168.1.78
    TFTP...

    And there it stops... I have tried 2 client computers with difrent network adapters without eny luck...

    Is the root of the pxe server:
    Code:
    C:\Programfiler\Fellesfiler\Acronis\PXEServer
    ?

    What do i have to put there to get this to work?

    Erlend,
    Did you actually go in and configure a boot file (Management Console>Configure Acronis PXE Server)?
