Today I decided to update the ADK on my deployment server. I updated to 2004. I decided to choose one model PC to try testing with and downloaded the driver package for said laptop and updated the share to make a fresh new boot image then uploaded it. I installed both parts of the 2004 update. I injected all drivers for that model. Made a new boot image. Loaded the new boot image. Now when I PXE to the WDS it goes in with the new boot image and says loading files then reboots. Every single time. Is there something I haven't changed that is required with the ADK update?

    This is mostly likely due to the lack of correct network drivers in the boot image.
    Right on the WindPE screen, press F8, when prompt opens up, check IP (Ipconfig) and Disk (Diskpart - List disk; Check time and Date on the BIOS of the machine, make sure they are updated.
    In this similar case, uninstall ADK 2004 and roll back to 1903 make thing fine…
