ConfigMgr 2007: OSD PXE booting fails with error "No Boot Action for Device (x) found"

Here's another cool tip from Frank Rojas.  If you're trying to PXE boot and getting "No Boot Action for Device (x) found" errors then you'll want to check this out:


Issue: When attempting to PXE boot a PC using SCCM 2007 OSD, the PXE boot fails. Analyzing the SMSPXE.log while the PC tries to PXE boot shows the following error message as the PC attempts the PXE boot:

No Boot Action for Device (x) found

where x is a random number.

Cause: This issue can be caused by one of the following issues with SCCM2007:

1) An advertised Task Sequence to the PC has no Boot Image associated with it.

2) An advertised Task Sequence to the PC had a Boot Image associated with it, but the Boot Image originally associated with the Task Sequence has been removed or deleted.

Resolution: To fix the problem follow these steps:

1) Right click on the affected Task Sequence and choose Properties.

2) Click on the Advanced Tab.

3) Make sure that the option "Use a boot image:" is checked and that a Boot Image is selected.

Once you do this Operating System Deployment should work as expected.


Thanks Frank!
