Having an interesting one.

Deploying a Windows 10 custom image using WDS/MDT.

Using a Dell XPS 13 9350 and the Dell USB 3.0 Ethernet adapter.

I'm able to boot to PXE, load Boot.wim to access my MDT task sequence, which then starts without issue.

The OS is installed, drivers are loaded, then it reboots to boot into Windows and complete the task sequence.

Once its booted into windows 10, the USB network adapter fails to initialize, shows that its failed installation in the device manager even though the device shows as having the correct driver. Unplugging and plugging the adapter back in allows the usb network adapter install and then I'm able to continue the task sequence which has another 2 reboots but doesn't have the issue again.

I've verified the correct nic drivers are being injected for the adapter but it just fails.

Log shows that its failing to load the driver for the usb nic.

This whole process works fine on other hardware I am using. I'm not seeing any driver conflict at all.

Thoughts? Recommendations?
