KBE DISKPART does not assign drive letter to USB drive, USB drive info = hidden on Optiplex 7040
I'm in the process of building yet another KBE, this time to suit Optiplex 7040 SFF.
Usually I follow these instructions to test that the network driver I supply on my USB drive is the one that is missing, and then update/recache drivers and rebuild KBE. However, this time I'm having an unusual problem early on in the game.
In KBE's command prompt (right after it fails to find my kbox due to lack of network driver), my USB drive shows as Hidden and not assigned a letter in DISKPART.
I can attempt to assign it a letter, but it remains Hidden and I cannot access files on it after I assign the drive letter (g: in this case).
I only have 1 seed unit of Optiplex 7040 to test so I don't know if it's the model. However in the OS DISKPART finds the drive fine.
Haven't run into this one before -- has anyone else?

I had all kinds of problems building a KBE for Optiplex 7040. The USB drives first, then later other errors referencing Intel storage devices...
I think the answer is: build a KBE that is only for Optiplex 7040, using only drivers for 7040.
