I recently entered the Institute for the first time. I asked Sturges to examine the schematics and help me build the teleporter. Before I left though, Sturges told me to insert a holotape into an Institute terminal. The first thing I did when I entered the Institute was I inserted the holotape into the terminal.
(Main quest line spoilers below)
I then met the Institute director, the main character's son, Shaun. He seemed non-hostile even though I met him after inserting the holotape.
I am trying to ally with the Institute. My question is was inserting the network scanning holotape a mistake? Would this ultimately prevent me from getting the "Institute" ending?
