NIS on Windows 2000 Server

By wbochar ·
I have a Windows 2000 server that has RIS configured and working. When a Netowrk boot request comes, the client responds and logs into the service. I select the Image I want to install (windows2000pro) and the installer begins. When the installer goes to the "Starting windows 2000" graphical (or even the text mode version) the screen goes black and the client machine hangs.
If I install win2000pro to the client using bootdisks or CD boot, the installation goes without a hitch. If I use anotherboot method (like anything but windows 2000) the boot image will work fine. Windows 2000, with any service pack will not install.
