SCCM crashes before task sequence on usb boot media

Ok, so just wanted to post this real quick post that might help someone since I had a lot of trouble finding the answer.  I couldn’t use pxe and needed to be able to boot at a location with usb bootable media.  So easy I’ll just create some.  Thing was I would have it reboot as soon as I would put in the password for the boot media.  No errors network showed connected which is a typical issue with drivers not being in your boot media.  So I continued to restart and study my smsts.log and came across the below.

Failed to run unattended because there is no mandatory deployment.

After thinking about it a while I remembered I had set it to allow unattended deployment.  Well it turns out if no deployments are deployed to the machine as required that option doesn’t let it choose a task sequence.  So just uncheck that box and you will be off to the races.
