Making your TFTP downloads, necessary for WinPE, faster

To increase the TFTP server block size do the following,

  1. Open up the PXE configuration utility
  2. Select the Multicast tab
  3. In the Packet Size text box, change the value from 768 to 1456

    Click to view.

  4. Click 'Save' to push these settings to the TFTP server
  5. Click 'OK' to exit the PXE configuration Utility

Try imaging with PXE now -your TFTP transfer time of the PXE image should now betwice as fast! Not bad for a minutes work at the console.
