  • By definition, Windows Authentication will prompt for credentials with a pop-up. Any 'custom logon page' will require forms-based authentication. Due to the complexity of configuring and maintaining FBA, I'd recommend against it.

    That said, if you're willing to add in Web Application Proxy and ADFS 3.0 (requires two separate Server 2012 R2 installations), you can do this - WAP is FBA and ADFS 3.0 can pass NTLM credentials back to SharePoint. WAP, however, does not work with SharePoint Apps. This will be fixed in Windows Server 10.
