2910552 You cannot stage a Windows PE 3.1 boot image to a Windows XP-based computer after you upgrade to System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager
This update resolves the following issues in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.
Issue 1After you enable the PXE Service Point role on an instance of a specific distribution point, or you select the Deploy this boot image from the PXE-enabled distribution point property of a boot image, the Windows Deployment Service (WDS) stops running. Additionally, entries that resemble the following are logged in the Windows Application log:
Faulting application name: svchost.exe_WDSServer, version: 6.3.9600.16384, time stamp: 0x5215dfe3Faulting module name: MSVCR100.dll, version: 10.0.40219.1, time stamp: 0x4d5f034aException code: 0xc0000005Fault offset: 0x000000000005f61aFaulting process id: 0xae4Faulting application start time: 0x01cec5d767184634Faulting application path: C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exeFaulting module path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\bin\x64\MSVCR100.dllNote This problem affects only distribution points that are installed on site servers.
Issue 2When you download operating system image files to Configuration Manager 2012 R2 clients, the process takes longer than it did in previous versions of Configuration Manager 2012 clients. You may see this behavior if the target client is running Windows PE or a full Windows operating system.

Installation informationThis update applies to Central Administration sites, primary sites, administrator consoles, and clients. After you apply this update to a site server, you can create client update packages.
After the update is installed on site servers, any operating system boot images should be updated. To update boot images after the hotfix is applied, follow these steps:
- In the Configuration Manager console, click Software Library.
- In the Software Library workspace, expand Operating Systems, and then click Boot Images.
- Select the boot image that you want to update.
- Right-click and then select the Update Distribution Points action.
Note This action updates all distribution points and may have an adverse effect on an environment that contains many distribution points.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all boot images that have previously been distributed.
- All existing media (such as stand-alone, boot, or prestaged) that use existing boot images (default or custom) will have to be re-created.
- To fully fix the problem in Issue 2, the client side .msp file has to be installed during the "Setup Windows and ConfigMgr task by using the PATCH= command.
- For more information about how to update boot images, see the How to Manage Boot Images in Configuration Manager topic on the Microsoft TechNet website.
