MDT 2013 - PXE install and Offline Media install (USB) do not behave the same

We have a MDT 2013 server setup and working.
Now, for each machine in deployment share, an USB is also created, (One "computer" stored on one USB stick)
Got it working in this question, thanks :)'s.html

Upon deploying to a target machine from USB, the dialog is not identical to what it looks like using PXE boot.

When booting from USB  this happens:
-Domain or WORKGROUP must be selected, that selection not available during PXE boot.
-Language/keyboard can be selected, those selections are grayed out using PXE boot. Only timezone is selectable then.
-The option to not set administrator password at this time is not present, it is using PXE.

The MDT->Advanced Settings->Media folder is pointing to the same task sequence  as is used for the same image in PXE.

The system deployed is a custom Win 2012 server.

Media has its own customsettings so wondering if the Deployment Share customesettings is the same as Media customesettings. This where you define the variables for deployment, or atleast one place.

just copy deployment to media or use any editor
Yes as David mentioned, you need to open one Custom Settings and Copy/Paste into Media custom settings. Then update media.
Ron DokkensirAuthor Commented:
You can copy/paste into Media->Properties->Rules textbox. That will write to customsettings.ini for the media. Thx!
