This repair kit is requires only a little knowledge and experience, Which hopefully by the end of the second Video you will have  :geek:  
Works with Windows server 2003, all the way up to Windows server 2012R2. Just need a server OS with WDS/Active Directory Installed.
So without further ado lets get right into it,



Open the Windows Deployment Services Console
Right Click on your Server and select Properties
From the Boot tab change the default boot program for x86 architecture to \Boot\x86\pxelinux.com
(Do the same for x64)

The four Commands to place in command prompt and run individually :

wdsutil /set-server /bootprogram:boot\x86\pxelinux.com /architecture:x86

wdsutil /set-server /N12bootprogram:boot\x86\pxelinux.com /architecture:x86

wdsutil /set-server /bootprogram:boot\x86\pxelinux.com /architecture:x64

wdsutil /set-server /N12bootprogram:boot\x86\pxelinux.com /architecture:x64

Download x86 and x64 Directory:

Just a quick suggestion - maybe post what versions of Windows this is suitable for. Good idea to have that available on a server though.
