Custom bootstrap.ini in MDT - how to get it to boot over PXE? Imported into WDS, but that just does standard WDS boot. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Edit: Got it. Have to boot the LiteTouch wim rather than the boot.wim.

    I have a standalone WDS server functioning over PXE. There is no AD environment. I can capture and deploy images with WDS, I just have to put in a name and password every time.

    So I build a new share in MDT, and added the share credentials to its Bootstrap.ini:

    KeyboardLocale=en-US

    UserDomain=WinDeployServer

    UserID=ShareUser

    UserPassword=SharePassword

    It's definitely in there, saved, and valid. Next I right click and "Update Deployment Share" Once that's done, I added the boot.wim from that MDT share into my WDS boot images. But when I PXE boot and select my MDT boot image, it still goes into WDS Windows setup. It makes me select a locale, and then asks me for the credentials, and once I provide them, it gives me a list of my regular WDS images to choose from. My MDT customization just isn't entering the picture at any point.
