AD Authentication for PXE boot

It would be useful to integrate AD authentication in the WinPE boot image for PXE boot OSD.

When deploying operating systems with MDT and WDS, users are prompted to authenticate against AD when PXE booting. However, in SCCM the only supported way to secure the PXE point is with a DP password that all users share.

There are third party "hacks" which can integrate AD authentication in the WinPE boot image (Johan Arwidmark's ADSI drivers) but it seems like this would be simple to implement within the product itself since it is already done in MDT/WDS.

    If AD Authentication does come to PXE, it would be excellent to capture the authenticated user as a TS variable.
