Ok I have performed Media deployment via USB thumbdrive many times over the years, so I must be overlooking something this time. Here is the what is happening:
Performing a refresh via USB executing Litetouch.vbs from the deploy\scripts folder on the USB thumbdrive. Scanstate runs and saves the data using hardlinking. (works perfect)
Then the client reboots into WINPE and then when the deployment should pick backup I see the message "Please reinsert the media (CD, DVD, or USB) needed to complete the deployment." While the USB drive is still plugged in I hit ok on the missing media message screen and it does nothing.
If I hit F8 and check to see if the USB drive is present I find out it is not.
But If I simply reboot the client it succesfuly picks back up and completes the deployment. My Brootstrap.ini contains the following as required for USB media deployment:[Settings]
So the question is why do I get the "Please reinsert the media (CD, DVD, or USB) needed to complete the deployment

is the usb drive connected to a usb 3.0 port? I've had problems with winpe and usb 3.0 before.
might be a driver issue.

Having the same issues, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
About 1 out of 10 times USB will not work, also happens on USB 2.0 ports if I remember correctly.
There is definitely something off with timing and USB deployment, I remember similar issues happening with Network boot in the past on some clients, but this is fixed already.
Which kind of systems are you deploying?
