In SCCM 2012, you may encounter the following PXE error message:
PXE-E53: No boot filename received
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent
Selected boot device failed. Press any key to reboot….
Unfortunately, there are many instances that will generate the error message above; one of those instances is when you’ve not set your Windows PE x86 to deploy in your distribution point.
Yes, even if you’re using Windows PE (x64), you must enable the (x86) version. (see below)

I’m using the Boot Image to set User Device Affinity (UDA) to devices managed by SCCM 2012 R2 SP1.
First, here’s how we script looks to:
Dim userDA, smsUserMode Set env = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment") ' We enable UDA variable here - before assigning user smsUserMode = "Auto" env("SMSTSAssignUsersMode") = smsUserMode userDA = Inputbox("Type a valid Active Directory user account." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _ "Format: DOMAIN\Username", "Name of primary user for device...") env("SMSTSUdaUsers") = userDA ' writing to log wscript.echo "User device affinity set to " & env("SMSTSUdaUsers") wscript.echo "We're going to set UDA by setting SMSTSAssignUsersMode variable to: " & env("SMSTSAssignUsersMode")
I’m going to save this script on a shared network location. This code is widely used by many people, and I’m not the creator of it; I’ve just slightly modified it.
Next, I’m going to customize the Boot Image file in SCCM, see screenshot.
The following will allow you to deploy JAVA, using an MSI, with the ability to disable JAVA’s AutoUpdate feature.
- Download JAVA manually from here
- You can download 64 and 32 bit version
- Next, run the installation file, but do not click anything else after the first screen
- Go to C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\LocalLow\Oracle and find the extracted MSI file
- Copy the MSI to another location and use ORCA to modify the MSI fi le
- ORCA can be downloaded from here
- Go to the Properties table and change the properties highlighted in the screenshot
- Save the MSI and you’re now ready to deploy JAVA
