We might be having the same issue:
I had also logged a discussion board for this one and AHE is helping me a lot. I will test to deploy the script he had provided.

you can't add a client/server to the "group" PXE Representatives, they will appear, if PXE is installed and a inventory scan was running after.
Network View - Corename - Configuration - PXE Representative it's a inventory view only!
Which PXE error message do you got? Take a look here: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-8358
Do you use VLAN's?
As I understand right, W2K8 R2 is a 64 bit OS, in the past I've had several problems if PXE is installed on 64 bit, because of different pathes...
What you can check:
- Are the PXE services running on your PXE?
LANDesk(R) PXE MTFTP Service: PXEMTFTP.exe
LANDesk(R) PXE Service: PXESvc.exe
- Are the boot files copied to "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\PXE\System\images\boot"?
BCD, boot.sdi, boot.wim
On 64 bit OS, they've to be below "C:\Program Files (x86)", but it could happen that they are stored below "C:\Program Files", so copy them...
- Did you check, if the DHCP helper adress is set in your network environment?
The PXE error we're getting is PXE-M0F. However, upon checking the other items in your list, I found that the PXE services aren't running, nor are they installed. They do not appear in the Services console, either. The image directories do not exist either. Evidently deploying the PXE Rep did absolutely nothing. I even attempted using the method Watticus posted here: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-3096, to no avail.
I do not have access to the switches, but I am using DHCP option 66 to point clients to the PXE server by hostname- if necessary.
Is there a manual installer that I can install locally, or can I copy certain directories or files from the core to the new server?
You can find the PXE MSI on the core ...\landesk\files\osdrep.msi
But before, check if the MS Installer made a eventlog entry. Perhaps the installer has had a problem and need a repair. (install the newest version repair it).
If there is no entry in eventlog, try the msi... (as I said, I don't know it it will work on W2K8 64bit).
If the installation was successful, you've to configure your PXE manually... here you can find a document from HP which described the usage of the intel tool too:
Perhaps LANDesk will document the configuration of the (very old) intel tool and their changes in the original MSI, if the tool get his twenties anniversary
Or you try a other free PXE...
