Error 1231 on new Boot Environment?
I recently created a new boot environment for Windows 7 x64 deployments, using my Win7Pro x64 desktop as the source box. Everything went according to the instructions, and the environment is both listed in KACE's Deployment interface and on the PXE boot menu when booting from LAN.
However, after I select that boot environment, the script window errors out with "System error 1231 has occurred" and leaves me at the command prompt.
Running an ipconfig/all lists no network adapters, explaining the error. However, when I boot into the x86 environment or an older x64 KBE (which gives me an error about OS correlations, thus my creation of the new one), everything works fine.
What am I missing here?

What model are you working with?
You may have to copy the network drivers to \\kbox\drivers\kbe_windows_x64\. I found my best practice is to create a new folder in there called "custom_drivers", then create a subfolder with the appropriate NIC drivers.
I've experienced this very issue for the following Dell models: Dell Optiplex 9020-AIO, Dell Latitude E7240, Latitude E7440. Don't forget to rebuild your KBE again!!!!
Why does this happen? I've been told that newer manufacturer's such as the Intel Ethernet Connection I2xx-LM NIC (i.e. I217-LM and I218-LM from what I've experienced already) use a new instruction set (or code) that the standard NIC drivers don't have. Thus, you may be experiencing an issue when trying to mount the kbox share drive with the System Error 1231 issue.

make sure you download the kbe driver pack and install it according to the readme...
you can also use our driver feed builder to get the win7 driver...
just a driver issue...
