Lets forget about everything besides mapping a drive and running NINite.

So here is what I have done.

I have changed the task sequence to look like this:

I have added a net use command to before the ninite script so it now looks like this:

net use I: \\itshares\install$ /u:crec\scollins PASSWORD /P:N
     \\itshares\install$\NINite\PRO8-1-2012\NiniteOne.exe /cachepath \\itshares\install$\NINite\Cache /select Chrome Flash "Flash (IE)" "Java 7" Malwarebytes VLC /allusers /disableshortcuts /disableautoupdate

I am 100% sure the script runs with my credentials. I can map to the that bat file and run it with no problems. But I get this error:

I am getting irritated because I keep reading its so simple but obviously I am doing something wrong.

Where do you vote it gets moved to? Serverfault.. I would not say its off topic but just not in the right place. I thought I put at the end if this is not in the correct place please move it. – localuser Nov 14 '12 at 21:38
According to the FAQ: `and it is not about … issues specific to corporate IT support and networks' – Canadian Luke Nov 14 '12 at 22:00
You are absolutely right. MODS Please move to ServerFault – localuser Nov 15 '12 at 1:05
It needs one more vote, then it will go there automatically – Canadian Luke Nov 15 '12 at 6:41

If you deploy with an unattended file, you can just add this command to the RunSyncronous components of the OOBE pass. These will run in the background on the first login.

I added the run command line to the task sequence it starts it then stops saying the credentials are wrong. It is odd since the credentials I am using are a domain admin account and I made sure the layout is domain\user – localuser Nov 15 '12 at 13:13
I have edited the post with what I have done. – localuser Nov 15 '12 at 20:48
