    Thanks very much.
    Am I right in thinking this


    JoinDomain= Domain name? e.g mydomain.local
    DomainAdmin=Account with domain admin rights ?
    DomainAdminDomain=domain name again?
    DomainAdminPassword=password for domain account used above?

    Having these details entered will join the computer to the domain during the deployment proccess?

    yeah sorry it was a bit vauge with all my **** lol.

    the stuff in bootstrap.ini allows you to sign onto mdt without entering your username password.

    the stuff in customsettings.ini....

    JoinDomain=domain.local
    DomainAdmin=Administrator
    DomainAdminDomain=domain.local
    DomainAdminPassword=password

    allows you to join the computer to the domain...that better?

    For the some reason the sign in to MDT didn't work. I'm guessing I made a mistake with the credentials I entered in the bootstrap.ini and going to double check them now.

    EDIT

    Nope cant get the auto login to work.
    Credentials 100% correct and have permision to access the share, yet it still asks me to enter them during the MDT boot image load.

    Skip BDE is this screen right? ( apart from mine looks difference because a newer version I guess )
    http://blogs.technet.com/blogfiles/m...mage_thumb.png

    That screen isnt being skipped either even though it's in my bootstrap.ini
    Everytime i update something I always right click and 'Update deployment share' Is there something else I have to do?

    that should be all you need. When you update the deployment share do you regenerate the boot images and readd to wds?

    I updated the deployment share if that's what you mean.
    The boot image is already in WDS so I thought when the deployment share updates it would also update the boot image in wds? ( Maybe i'm wrong )
    I will try replacing the boot image now.

    when you right clicked on your share and clicked update share did you select optimize or regenerate?

    and no mdt doesnt auto update wds sadly, each time you regenerate your image you have to replace it in wds
