Bypass "Press Enter" Prompt on Available TS Deployments with CM WDS UEFI PXE Boot

When you deploy an OSD TS as Available, you are prompted to "Press ENTER for network boot service." If you do not press enter it instead boots to the OS (if any). This does not occur when using a required deployment. It would be useful to bypass this for available deployments.

This behavior is documented by Microsoft.

There is a previous UV that mentions this from 2017, but it was declined. The reasoning does not pan out for me, though. It does not appear to be a hardware issue as it occurs on both physical and virtual workstations. It also only occurs on available deployments. It also does not occur when using WDS along with something like MDT on the same workstations.
