During the beginning of the image process, MDT just stalls and never moves forward in the process.

I have rebuilt the deployment share, replaced it in WDS. Not sure if this is a task sequence issue or bootstrap or .ini issue. Below is my bootstrap and .ini

    Hey!

    Could you please provide more detailed information?

    Meanwhile you can try below troubleshooting steps :-

    • Verify that the bootstrap.ini file is correct and that the settings match your environment.
    • Ensure that the Deployment Share and Deployment Share folder have the correct permissions.
    • Make sure that the Deployment Share and Deployment Share folder are reachable from the client machine
    • Ensure that the Deployment Share and Deployment Share folder are not in use by another process or another instance of MDT.
    • check the network connectivity and DNS resolution
    • check the deployment share's logs and client machine's smsts.log for more information
    • Check if the serial number variable is being passed correctly
