Enables a boot image.

Syntax

Enable-WdsBootImage
      -ImageName <String>
      -Architecture <Architecture>
      [-FileName <String>]
      [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
      [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
      [-AsJob]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Enable-WdsBootImage cmdlet enables a boot image in the Windows Deployment Services Image Store that is currently disabled. When a boot image enabled, clients that use Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) to boot to the Windows Deployment Services server can access the boot image.

Specify the boot image by using the ImageName and Architecture parameters. If the image name and architecture do not uniquely identify the image, also specify the FileName parameter.

Examples

Example 1: Enable a boot image for the x86 architecture

PS C:\> Enable-WdsBootImage -Architecture x86 -ImageName "Fabrikam LOB setup (x86)"

This command enables the boot image named Fabrikam LOB setup (x86) for the x86 architecture.

Required Parameters

-Architecture

Specifies an architecture. This is the architecture of the boot image. Because you can use the same image name for boot images in different architectures, specify this this parameter to make sure that that you enable the correct image. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • ARM
  • ia64
  • x64
  • x86
Type:Architecture
Parameter Sets:X86, Ia64, X64, Arm
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ImageName

Specifies the name of an image. This is the name of the image to enable.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FileName

Specifies a file name. This is the file name of the boot image. Use this parameter to specify the file name for the boot image if the boot image name does not uniquely identify the image.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
