    Hello all,

    I have just performed a clean install of DS 6.9 SP6 onto a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine running SQL Server Express 2012 SP2. 

    During the custom install process, I provided files for FreeDOS, MS-DOS, LinuxPE & WinPE. 

    After the installation, BDC confirms that all pre-boot files have been installed; however, the PXE Config Utility only lists menus for MS-DOS, LinuxPE & WinPE 4.0

    The file system also only has the MenuOption129, MenuOption130 & MenuOption131 PXE image folders. 

     

    I wonder if this has occurred because DS first creates MenuOption129 for FreeDOS, which is then overwritten by MS-DOS when it creates its image files, as I know that if you just install DS with either FreeDOS or MS-DOS only, MenuOption129 is created both times. 

    Plus .\PXE\Images\MenuOption129\X86PC\ contains a MenuOption129.0 17KB file as well as a MenuOption129.1 2880KB file. 

     

    Has anyone else seen this?
