WDS deployment fails when UEFI clients are in routed environments in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

Symptoms
Assume that you try to deploy Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) through Windows Deployment Services (WDS). When clients are Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and in a routed environment, they don't receive the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) packets correctly. Therefore, the WDS deployment fails on these clients.
Status
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
