  • The authentication is just network share access. Antivirus wont affect that.

    You should edit your bootstrap.ini file in the control folder of your deploymentshare and put the details in there. Here's how mine looks:


    Check that the account has permissions to the deployment share also.

  • Hi,

    1. You should both type these credentials into Bootsrap.ini and CustomSettings.ini. 


    2. Then update your deployment share

    3. Replace the image you updated in WDS

    4. Format your test computer and try again. 

    I had this issue and the network credentials were prompting and 4. step was my solution.

  • Yes, you should always update and replace your image after making any changes to the bootstrap.ini file.

    You don't always need the credentials in the customsettings.ini. For bare metal deployments you're fine, but for a refresh then you need them.
