KB 2905002 has been posted to the hotfix servers to address two post-R2 issues:

This update resolves the following issues in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

Issue 1

After 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:

Note This problem affects only distribution points that are installed on site servers.

Issue 2

When operating system image files are downloaded to Configuration Manager 2012 R2 clients, you may find that the download takes longer than it did in previous versions of Configuration Manager 2012 clients. You may see this behavior when the target client is running Windows PE or a full Windows operating system.


Please see the KB for details here :

Hope it Helps ,
