    Hi, @Clinton van Axel
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    May we know was the WDS installed manually or installed automatically by check Enable PXE support on DP?
    It's not recommended to install WDS manually.

    We may try the steps to see if it is helpful to fix the issue:

    1. Remove the PXE role
    2. Remove the Multicast role.
    3. Remove the WDS role(If installed manually).
    4. Reboot the machine.
    5. DO NOT INSTALL WDS.
    6. Delete the RemoteInstall folder.
    7. Enable the SCCM Multicast role and the SCCM PXE role.
