You want to create multiple WinPE boot image with PXE, or you have a multiple WinPE menus and you want to know how to delete some of them
To create new WinPE menu:
- Run Ghost Boot Wizard and create your second WinPE boot image under the TFTPBOOT folder, PXE will read each WinPE image under Boot folder as a menu item.
To edit the WinPE menu:
- PXE access all the boot images by default from c:\TFTPBOOT\boot. Under the boot folder you should have a multiple files with the wim extension. Each wim file is a copy of WinPE. The menu item you can see on the client side is the name of those wim files.
- To delete a menu item, you cannot simply delete the WIM file out of c:\tftpboot\boot. If you only delete the WIM file out of the c:\TFTPBOOT\boot folder, that menu item will still exist on the client machine when you boot it from the NIC. If you tried then to choose that WIM menu item that had been deleted, you would receive an error message.
- The only way to completely start over with your Windows PE menu is to clear the contents of the c:\TFTPBOOT folder (with the exception of the bootptab file) and then to use the Ghost Boot Wizard to recreate your PXE boot package.
