I created a bootable device from MDT by copying the litetouch PE x64 file and I am using the USB device on physical machine as we do not want to PXE boot.
I am getting error

"A connection to the deployment share could not be made.  The deployment will not proceed.
Connection OK. Possible cause: invalid credentials."

Hi,

You need to check the boot.ini. You specify the deployment share and the credentials there.
e.g.

DeployRoot=\\MDT01\DeploymentShare$
UserDomain=your.domain
UserID=domainuser
UserPassword= domainpassword

If the values are incorrect, fix it and then right-click on the share and choose "update deployment share".
This will re-generate the boot WIM so you will need to use the new file to make your USB bootable. You can cheat and copy the new boot.ini file from the Control directory to your USB stick. USBs are great for being able to make changes on the fly if you need to.

I am using same USB for laptop and desktop. On desktop I am getting network driver error. On laptop credentials error. I have the network drivers injected into .wim, also I have injected the USB drivers also. But after the OS install on desktop I am getting the network error and also mouse and key board are not working.

Hi,

All those are new issues you didn't mention at the start and strictly speaking need separate questions raised.
Please confirm if the solution I gave above fixes the connection to the MDT share. It seems the credentials are missing or wrong. You need a domain account with read permissions to the share.

I will briefly answer your new issues:

1) same USB for laptop and desktop                      -> that's fine. It makes no difference
2) On desktop I am getting network driver error -> that's a driver issue
3) On laptop credentials error.                                 -> see above - fix the boot.ini or the account

4) I have the network drivers injected into .wim   -> which ones?
5) also I have injected the USB drivers also  ->  don't. Take them out.
6) *after the OS* install on desktop I am getting the network error -> that's different issue to boot because you need different drivers
7) also mouse and key board are not working.    -> pass. I've never seen or heard of that

Please create new questions for 1-7 except 3!

yes - you would if your network drivers worked but they don't. It fails before getting that far.
