Pxe will hang during the downloading of the pxe boot image. There are no errors thrown, there is no pxe e xxx errors at all.
Deployment server 6.5 all versions
Deployment server 6.8 all versions.
The multicasting has been disabled in the network.
Resolution one: Enabling multicasting in the network. This is usually a non starter, as the multicast function in the network was shutdown for a reason.
Resolution two: Goto the deployment server console > tools > pxe configuration utility > multicast tab and here uncheck the box "Enable Multicast". The pxe will then send out the pxe boot image as a unicast broadcast and will work from that point on.
