Working with a client this weekend, I had a real fun time troubleshooting a deployment share the client had attempted to set up before I ended up having to just rebuild from scratch more or less.
(5616) Verify BCDBootEX error
Lesson of the day: “No Spaces in Names of The Deployment Share!” Two scripts that MDT uses to deploy the OS do not like spaces in the name of the share.
However, some research, ahem, googling has shown a neat work around…
Change line 520 of ZTIDiskUtility.vbs
sProgram = """" & sProgram & """"
sProgram = "*" & sProgram & "*"
and in ztiRunCommandHidden.wsf replace
wscript.quit oUtility.RunWithConsoleLogging( wscript.arguments.UnNamed(0) )
wscript.quit oUtility.RunWithConsoleLogging( sString )

This should allow you to keep shares in your name, but in all honesty, just keep spaces out of your share name. You’ll thank me later.
