The LDMS PXE is designed for use with DHCP so which means there won't be a supported method of PXE booting without DHCP.
That being said, if your environment is not using DHCP, there are 2 options that come to mind that would let you get into provisioning.
The first is to use provisioning boot media:
This will give you an iso you can burn to disk and boot from so the device bypasses the need for a PXE rep. Once in WinPE though, I'm thinking you'll be stuck without DHCP to offer the device an IP...
The other option is to make use of Disconnected Templates where you provision a device entirely from a thumb drive; it doesn't need network connectivity to lay down the image since the image is on the drive.
Disconnected templates are less ideal if you have lots of devices to do, but it is an option.
Thank you Nick for your reply. I was thinking along the lines of using the provisioning boot media but I figured the winpe client was still going to need DHCP. The only other thought I had was cracking open the winpe image and somehow setting a static IP address to it. I found a few articles on Microsoft's help but it looks challenging...
Since you are looking to do this in VMWare have you considered setting things up on a different virtual network with VMWare's DHCP feature enabled?
