Problem: When deploying an image to certain target computers, Windows PE starts, runs wpeinit, opens a Command Prompt window but does not actually start the deployment process. Troubleshooting the problem by mapping a network drive from the target computer indicates that the network adapter drivers are not loaded.

Possible Solution 1: The Deployment Wizard is not starting, because there is insufficient RAM. Verify that the target computer has at least 512 MB of RAM and that no shared video memory consumes more than 64 MB of the 512 MB.

The versions of Windows PE that MDT supports are unable to run on a target computer that has less than 512 MB of RAM.

Possible Solution 2: Do not include the wireless drivers in the Windows PE image.
