    Description

    When PXE Booting you receive an error before booting into WinPE.

    - TFTP Boot Issues

    - PXE-032 Error

    - NBD failing to load (freezes)

     

    Cause

    Starting in Windows 10 1709 build windows firewall has been updated to Windows Defender Firewall.

     

    If you have your firewall enabled and you used to be able to PXE Boot it was because the PXE Services was set as an exception.

     

    Solution

     

    Windows 10 1709 requires that you specify the open ports for PXE into the Inbound Rules if you have your Windows Firewall enabled.
