      Noted  ·  sangeev responded

      Hi. I’m setting the status back to Noted – this was mixed up with the item “Add support for TFTP Window Size” – that has been Started and is available in the 1603 tech preview build.

      Thanks,
      BobMN on behalf of SangeeV for SCCM OS Deployment

      iPXE even has support to load the WIM directly, this would be an awesome inclusion!

        Actually, Macs can PXE boot, but it isn't completely mature at the moment, but I have net/pxe booted a Mac into SCCM's OSD.
        The biggest problem is that Microsoft's DHCP Server doesn't support forcing DHCP options down to a client, it only sends what is requested. The Macs don't request options 66/67, and the Netboot service just forces it down. If you add ISC-DHCP to the mix, to give out supplemental options, you can combine it with iPXE and actually have the Mac netboot into a PXE environment.
        I actually have feedback on the server forum to add the option to be able to send the unrequested options to the client, which would enable this.
