1. If after creating one image for different hardware you are experiencing Blue screen issue and driver installing again and again, then we recommend in using separate images for the clients.
Also, if you are using Windows 7, then please consider upgrading to Windows 10 as it has better hardware support for new boards and computer specs then on Windows 7.

2. If  Diskless boot still not working please do these steps:

a. Insert HDD in one of the client and install the OS and latest drivers.

b. After finishing the installation on first client remove the HDD and insert to other same PC specs that cannot boot.

c. Check if there's a detection of drivers then upload the image to the server.
