|PXEboot.n12||Does not require the user to press F12 and immediately begins a network boot.||x86-based and x64-based||BIOS|
|AbortPXE.com||Boots the computer by using the next boot item in the BIOS without waiting for a time-out.||x86-based and x64-based||BIOS|
|Hdlscom1.com and Hdlscom2.com||Causes computers that do not support firmware console redirection to display “Press space or F12 for network boot,” using console redirection to serial port 1 or 2.

|Bootmgfw.efi||The equivalent of Bootmgr.exe for EFI-based computers. In EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface), the choice of whether or not to perform a network boot is handled within the EFI shell, and not by the NBP.||x64-based and Itanium-based||EFI|
|Wdsnbp.com||An NBP developed for Windows Deployment Services that serves the following general purposes:1. Architecture detection
2. Pending computer scenarios. When the Auto-Add policy is enabled, this NBP is sent to pending computers to pause the network boot and report back the client computer’s architecture to the server.
3. Network boot referral cases (including use of Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) options 66 and 67)
