the link you gave in your question points to a very old article, the article outlines steps that are not needed today. Using WDS on 2012 or 2012R2 you can pre-stage a device, join it to the domain and assign it to an OU, as well as linking unattended answer files straight from the WDS console. have a look at the link below
