MDT 2010 External Media, Attempting to image a Dell XPS 13
Posted on 2012-04-04
I've been banging my head against this one for a couple days.
I'm attempting to build a media deploy on a USB key as there is no builtin Ethernet port on this laptop to allow for PXE booting.
I have the laptop plugged into a Targus USB dock. I added the USB controller drivers to the PE environment but cannot get it to connect to the Deployment share after it successfully boots to the USB key. Confirmed by attempting to perform a net use from the command line and can't
The strange thing is, the docking station is being recognized in the PE environment because the USB key is booting fine when plugged into the dock.
Is there a way to deploy my WIM image from the USB key offline and not have it want to call home to the MDT/WDS server? I have Drivers/TaskSequence/OS all added to the Media on the USB key so I don't really get why it still needs to connect to the Deployment share.
Thanks for any help!
