Note: If PXE boot is not working as planned you may need to do some PXE troubleshooting.

if you do an ipconfig /all at this point you'll see that our w2k8deploy server now has the ip address/subnet/gateway settings we specified earlier as variables, however it lists it's DNS settings as localhost instead of the ones we specified, why is this ? because if you setup a server to host it's own AD then it will as part of the AD setup define DNS to point to itself if it is the only DC in a Domain or forest, to test that, simply create a new Task Sequence and instead of making a new Domain Controller, just create a standard server with some feature added. The result will look like this (please note that in this screenshot that another Task Sequence has kicked in and that the server has only one Role installed, namely Windows Deployment Services).
