Upon investigating  you find that smspxe.log shows this error:

“Failed to read PXE settings.
The system cannot find the file specified. (Error: 80070002; Source: Windows)”

This error comes when boot images and related files are not ready on SCCM server  or Windows Deployment Service is not running on PXE service point role.

Solution:
1. Take ownership of this folder and delete all content : C:\Windows\Temp\PXEBootFiles

2. If that doesn’t help delete the boot images and re-create them
