  1. Launch Microsoft Configuration Manager 2007 to open the Configuration Manager console.
  2. Click System Center Configuration Manager > Site Database > Computer Management > Operating System Deployment > Task Sequences.
  3. Right-click the task sequence and select Advertise.
  4. Use the New Advertisement Wizard to assign the task sequence.
  5. Always configure advertisements with the following settings when using PXE:
    Option Description
    General page Select Make this task sequence available to boot media and PXE.

    Otherwise, the network client cannot receive the intended task from the Configuration Manager server.

    General page Browse to select the collection of the target server.
    Schedule page Mandatory assignments: “As soon as possible”
    Schedule page Program rerun behavior: “Always rerun program”
    Distribution Points page Select Access content directly from a distribution point when needed by the running task sequence.

    In WinPE, the default option of "Download content locally when needed by running task sequence" does not work. WinPE causes the task sequence engine to ignore all actions that have packages set for this option.

    Interaction page Select Show task sequence progress.
