Run this command to set the PXE password
"C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\landesk\vboot\PXEPasswordConfig.exe" /pw=password
Then check the log file for status...
You know what you may want to hold off on this a bit... Not sure its fully functional. I am having a lot of issues since using it...
To remove all the none WinPE options you have to go to hkey_local-machine\software\intel\pxe\proxydhcp.
change the value from 0 to 1 on the fields you do not want to see.
Ahh ok so step 2 is go and disable the Linux and Dos stuff in the reg key, and now my PXE boot is working again. But I still dont see the password prompt?
Not sure whats up here but every since I ran the PXEPAsswordConfig my core is unstable and cannot even log into my console. So I would caution you to be careful on this one.
I am going to revert this back to the previous snapshot. But in case anyone at LANDesk wants it here is my console.exe.log file. I have tried to reboot, and uninstall the Proxy as well as deleting my layout. My core is pretty much Toast.
Console.exe.log 296.6 K
I gather it's a setting on the PXE rep itself, but is there a way to integrate those registry settings with the PXE deployment task?
I believe I may just hold off of on the whole password thing then ;)... See if they have anything to say about your situation.
Here are descriptions from JARED in the old forum:
Another 'solution' by OPYRT in the old forum:

Perhaps this idea's will help you a bit... if the other solutions of RickDavie and SkiHaus do not work...
There are certainly other ways to do this it just seems a shame not to be able to use the built in capability, I have made inquiries to LANDesk as to the proper use and documentation of this tool butn it seems they are struggling as well... I will let you know as soon as I do. I do believe that my troubles were certainly related to having my core as the PXE proxy. I am going to test it on an XP workstation today and see what happens.
Ok well this apparently just does not work, or I dont know how to propely implement it. Either way I would not recommend anyone use it. I tried it today on my W2k Client and it appears to not only take out the proxy but when I edit the Reg keys it still does not prompt for the password I have set as expected...
To password protect the PXE Boot Menu on an LDMS 8.7 SP3 (or newer) core, do the following steps.
Go to Tools -> Distribution -> OS Deployment and select the "All Other Scripts" folder.
A button on the toolbar will activate with the popop "Build the secure PXE Representative Deployment scripts".
Click this button, and fill out the name of the PXE Representative Deployment Script, and the password that will be used to protect the F8 Menu.
Schedule the script, and install the PXE Representative. Now, when the F8 option is used, the password will be required to access the boot menu options.
There's other ways to do it too - with and without LANDesk at the end of the day.
