Hi guys,

That's my first ITNinja question ever so I am hoping i'm not violating any policies and that i'm doing it right. 
I'm trying to deploy Windows 10ent from our MDT server (latest and greatest version) on a brand new Surface Pro 4. 
I'm doing it using an original Microsoft Ethernet USB adapter and I am able to boot to the MDT server. 
However,  I am getting the "A connection to the deployment share (address) could not be made. DHCP Lease was not obtained for any Networking device! Possible Cause: Check physical connection."

However, when i'm opening the Device Manager I still see that there are plenty of yellow exclamation marks under "other devices" and the Ethernet Adapter is one of them.

Any idea?

You need to add the drivers for the ethernet adapter to your boot media. I knew how to do that with WDS but I'm not sure if it is changed with MDT.

  • Appreciate your answer! What I did was to basically download all the drivers and firmware from Microsoft's website and added them to the "out of the box drivers" on MDT. I've also added the Windows 10 enterprise 2015 LTSB to my operating systems on the MDT. What am i missing?
    • After adding them to the Out of Box drivers, did you import them?
      • I mean, i've imported them to the out of the box drivers and i see them there. Is there anything else i need to do once they are there?
