MDT 2012 - error: Invalid credentials: The network path was not found"

I'm using MDT 2012 to deploy Windows 7 to a Dell Latitude E6410 as my first test/reference computer.

I'm at the point where I boot the laptop off the WinPE boot CD I created. The laptop booted up and ran through some steps and then after a few minutes it stopped at a dialog box labeled:

User Credentials
Specify credentials for connecting to network shares.

After entering my appropriate domain logon credentials, it throws this error:

*Invalid credentials: The network path was not found.

Anyone know what the fix is for this? Thanks.

    Do you have commandline enabled in the boot CD?

    Try pinging the server and if it works then map a drive with your credentials.
