SCCM 2007 : PXE BOOT with VMWARE Workstation and Trend Micro AV not working !

June 30, 2009 at 9:08 am in ConfigMgr, ConfigMgr 2007, ConfigMgr 2007 R2 by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

PXE booting in your VM-Environment will not work unless you disable the Trend micro common firewall driver on your physical host . This is a known issue for Trend Micro !

To do this , follow the steps below.

Go to your control panel and select your network card .


Select your network adapter and select properties. The following screen appears.


Deselect the Trend Micro Common firewall driver and select “OK”.It is been disabled now.

PXE booting on VMWare Workstation Machine should work from know on ! Once your machine has been build you can turn it back on !


Hope it Helps ,
