I am trying to deploy image on physical machine using USB drive.
steps done:
Captured image of reference computer by running lighttouch.vbs file
imported os in mdt by selecting that image
created task sequence to deploy
changes bootstrap.ini settings
updated deployment share
added image to wds server
tried to install on laptop using USB drive got an error "A connection to deployment share could not be made, connection ok, invalid credentials".
So I tried the same usb on workstation and it went fine, but after installing OS got error "A connection to deployment share could not be made, The deployment will not proceed. The following networking device did not have a driver installed PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10EA&SUBSYS_040B1028&REV_05". I can not use the mouse or keyboard its like frozen. but mouse and keyboard are fine before installation.
And the time on physical machine before installing OS I chose eastern standard time but the time is 1 hour ahead.

Am I missing Anything?

Thanks

Can I confirm you are trying to deploy from USB completely or just using the USB to boot and deploy over the network? If you are deploying from USB then this is different process than from over the network.

The laptop error is exactly what it says, the credentials are incorrect or the account does not have the correct permissions.

The workstation error is due to the boot.wim not having the correct network driver.

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.

So you are using the USB to boot and connect to MDT?

It sounds like your boot.wim may have the network drivers installed but your install.wim does not.

The laptop credentials error is an odd one. Are you using anything other than English language or standard QWERTY keyboard? With UK keyboard we sometimes have issues.

No i am using standard Keyboard.
How to add network drivers to install.wim, Normally we add custom image to OS in MDT. Also In WDS i have added Boot image only.
