Updating mdt out of box drivers Flirt4free download 2013

In this two part post, we are going to focus on that last project.

We are going to structure a driver store and use our MDT share as a remote driver installation server.

DC01 is a domain controller, MDT01 is a Windows Server 2012 R2 standard server, and PC0005 is a blank machine to which you deploy Windows 10.

I thought I had figured it all out, but here I am again, stuck even more than I was before. So I went back to Intel's website, and downloaded the NIC drivers again. Next thing I tried was to manually load the drivers through command line using the drvload command from a flash drive (the updated drivers from Intel's website): for the 64 bit Win PE image For more information on this, see: Both commands were left thinking for 10-20 seconds before completing and exiting with a "Completed Successfully" message.

For the purposes of this topic, we will use three machines: DC01, MDT01, and PC0005.

DC01 is a domain controller, MDT01 is a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard server, and PC0005 is a blank machine to which you deploy Windows 8.1.

So far I have created my deployment share and used a task sequence to create my base reference image, using a VM. I have then added the reference WIM image into 'Operating Systems' Now I have the task of rolling this out to the various types of hardware. Is it simply a case of adding in the required drivers into the 'Out-of-box Drivers' folder? Do I need to update the deployment share after adding in the drivers? The answer to 1 and 3 is "yes, but..." You may want to organize your drivers according to whether you need to use them in the boot (PE) images or the install images.

If so, do I need to refresh the boot image in WDS after doing so? Can I simply dump all the drivers for all the different types of hardware in this folder, and the Lite Touch deployment will figure out what's needed during deployment? Separating the drivers by model of computer can make it easier to replace the correct drivers when new versions are released.
