During a PXE installation of Windows Server 2008 R2, if PXE user authentication fails, check that the system date and time are set correctly. If the systems date and time is incorrect, PXE authentication fails, and the network installation of Windows Server 2008 R2 does not happen.
Note - This failure occurs when the date is approximately seven days different from the actual date.
Use the system BIOS to set the system date and time.
POST messages appear, and prompt you to press the F2 key.
The BIOS Setup Utility main menu appears.
