  14. Thnx for valuable info. I checked the above mentioned PXE registry key. It has 2 binary values: "BootServerReply" and "DHCPServerACK" binary values contain hell lot of info, probably whole DHCPOFFER and DHCPACK packets. Any idea how to extract info from these binary values?
  15. Im confused how would it (nbtstat) help? Just another case: machine has 2 NICs NIC1 & NIC2 NIC1 is on n/w 1 and NIC2 is on n/w 2. Both n/ws have DHCP server running. NIC1 has priority over NIC2 in BIOS boot loading. I have configured WinPE network booting on n/w 2 (to which NIC2 is connected) Once machine boots up, NIC1 gets ipaddress from DHCP server of n/w 1. NIC2 gets ipaddress from DHCP server of n/w 2 and also it receives boot-server & boot-filename details. It starts booting WinPE. Now in above case, WinPE has been booted on NIC2. How can i detect it thru any command, api from WinPE?
