Matching Processor Architecture Boot Image not found

Matching Processor Architecture Boot Image not found When I was working on the operating system deployment, the OSD failed for one of the remote sites. We had some other issues related to the OSD but those were fixed. But this issue came up for multiple sites. Upon checking the SMSPXE log file on the distribution point, I found the line Warning: Matching Processor Architecture Boot Image (0) not found. The fix for this issue is simple but you also need to check and verify few settings before you fix this issue.

Below were few lines from the SMSPXE log file.

Fix Matching Processor Architecture Boot Image not found

1) You need to start troubleshooting this issue by checking the boot image properties (both x86 and x64) and making sure that the option Deploy this boot image from the PXE-enabled Distribution Point is checked. SCCM PXE requires you to have both x64 and x86 images deployed even if you aren’t going to use both of them.

2) The next thing you need to check is the boot image availability on the DP. Make sure that boot images are distributed to the distribution point, If you had distributed the boot images to DP previously and in case if you make changes to it then you can Update Distribution Points.

3) If the boot images are showing as 100% compliant on all the required DPs, the issue could be that PXE service was unable to locate it. In this case you could check if the helper addresses was correct on the switches and the DHCP range was in place on the DHCP server. Restart the Windows Deployment Service on your Distribution Point.

4) Finally, check your RemoteInstall > SMSImages directory for the new wim files and review the SMSPXE.log file to verify the images are loaded.
