Yes, network work but you have to properly map a network drive through net use using computer name instead of IP address Big Grin :
net use z: \\computer_name\C$ /user:user_name password

Now the installation of the Windows work TongueBig Grin

There is no need for net use, it works exactly as described above. Both IP and computername can be used instead of "server" (name might be slow to resolve depending on how the network is configured).
However if you need a specific username or password on that share then you will need to connect to that share first somehow,
net use is one such way,
opening notepad and use file->open a file on the network is another possibility to enter these credentials (not recommended in practice but can be used to prove that net use is not strictly needed).
After that you can use the \\server\share approach regardless of need for username or password.
If "server" has a static IP it will be the most stable approach unless you have a well configured DNS,
but for proper name resolution you might need to run
net start dnscache

appropriate /etc/samba/smb.conf:
   security = user
   map to guest = Bad User
   netbios aliases = OPKServer
   guest account = pcguest

   path = /mnt/data/opk/
   public = yes
   only guest = yes
   writable = no
   printable = no

appropriate startnet.cmd:
wpeutil WaitForNetwork
net start dnscache
REM possible loop here until network is up
