Hi, 

I am trying to boot windows from a USB with MDT. Everything was going fine with the other laptops, however, now I am trying to do it on a desktop (Dell OptiPlex 3070), and I get to where I need to put in my MDT admin credentials (which I have been using with all the other computers) I put them in, click ok it and says Invalid credentials: The network path was not found. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

    Hi, @RandomTechnologyQuestions

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    According to your description, the error only occurs in the specific Dell model. May be the NIC driver is missing in the WinPE.

    We can press F8 to check if we get an IP and to see if we can ping to the network path.

    We may get the Dell WinPE driver pack and inject it to the boot image.
