DetailsOriginating updateStatusHistory
Devices starting using PXE from a WDS or SCCM servers may fail to start
Devices that start up using Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) images from Windows Deployment Services (WDS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) may fail to start with the error "Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed" after installing KB4503292 on a WDS server.

Affected platforms:
  • Server: Windows Server 2008 SP2; Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1; Windows Server 2012; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server, version 1803; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server, version 1903
Workaround:
To mitigate this issue on an SCCM server, set the values of TFTP block size to 4096 and TFTP window size to 1. For guidance on how to configure them, see Customize the RamDisk TFTP block and window sizes on PXE-enabled distribution points.

Note Try the default values for TFTP block size and TFTP window size first but depending on your environment and overall settings, you may need to adjust them for your setup. You can also try the Enable a PXE responder without Windows Deployment Service setting. For more information on this setting, see Install and configure distribution points in Configuration Manager.

To mitigate this issue on a WDS server without SCCM:
  1. In the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) of the imported image, set RamDiskTFTPBlockSize to 1456.
  2. In the BCD of the imported image, set RamDiskTFTPWindowSize to 4.
Note Try the default values for RamDiskTFTPBlockSize and RamDiskTFTPWindowSize first but depending on your environment and overall settings, you may need to adjust them for your setup.

Next steps: We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
