    Updating this item as there’s support for Windows 10 In-place upgrade using the Cloud Management Gateway – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1802
    Adding this in case some folks missed it or Win 10 In-place upgrade addresses their requirement.

    I recognize this it not full OS Deployment as there’s no WinPE phase (WinPE has no wireless stack)

    I already achieved this item with 802.1x auth support:
    https://twitter.com/hvandrie/status/875303380977164288
    Uses Network Access account for EAP-MSCHAPv2 authentication on the wireless connection.
    Whenever I can I'll publish the required coding on GitHub.
    Requirements:
    - WinRE media
    - WiFi drivers
    - C# application
    - Network Access account configured in ConfigMgr that allows access to wireless network
    Allows deployments over 802.1x Enteprise wireless networks using "Access content directly from a distribution point when needed by the running task sequence" option in deployment.

    I would rather see that WiFi support (Wlan AutoConfig service) introduced into WinPE, which is already present in WinRE for Windows 10.
    Also, I would love to see that OSD status messages are able to be delayed when connectivity is not present (yet) using a TS variable.

    I was able to utilize WinRE with some coding of my own to allow OSD to fully run over wireless with deployment set to "Access content directly from a distribution point when needed by the running task sequence" so it would not require pre-caching.

    See my tweet here: https://twitter.com/hvandrie/status/875303380977164288

    In the corporate environment I work for this resulted in bare-metal installations using USB media as start up to boot WinPE media to initiate the deployment in less than 70-80 minutes using a 802.11ac network. Which was faster than fast ethernet!
