Capturing an Image back to USB Drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some HP notebooks that don't have Ethernet and so I'm deploying images using USB. I'd like to be able to capture an image back to the USB drive but it looks like I need a UNC path, not just D:\Deploy\Captures. Is there any way around this or is it just the nature of the beast?

    Logs are very important. If you are unsure how to post logs or where to find them then reference https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Also if you have made customizations please mention them when asking for help.

  • I had several of these purchased to deploy to machines with no Ethernet port. It has worked perfectly with MDT because you can still boot from USB.

  • Funny you should mention - we're in the process of picking up a few - booting to USB is all we're doing for these systems now but I sure miss my WDS server!
