KACE Product Support Question

Supporting both UEFI and Legacy booting with a Windows 2008 R2 DHCP server?

07/14/2017 4084 views
Is it possible to enable both UEFI and Legacy BIOS booting into a KACE PXE environment with a Windows 2008 R2 DHCP server? I can support one or the other by changing the DHCP Bootfile Name to ipxe.efi for UEFI or undionly.kpxe for Legacy, but I need to support both boot methods at the same time. So far all of the documentation I've found, including the KACE help and the Kontinuing Education video, show how to set it up using a Windows 2012 DHCP server, where Policies come into play (which aren't available in Windows 2008 DHCP). I played around with defining my own DHCP Vendor classes but I can't seem to get that to work...

My K2000 version is 4.0.695.

Thanks in advance.
