If you deploying via system images then the best the is to create a post install task for the missing drivers. Example Library > Postinstallation Tasks > Choose Action > Add New Application > Browse to nameof.exe > command line: example.exe -s.

It looks at the drivers in which the appliance is aware of during the plug and play pass a scripted install.

For installing these types of drivers I would recommend a post-install task. What you will want to do is create a directory structure containing all of the driver packages that are available from Lenovo. Then you will need to create a batch file that will walk through these directories and install each driver package silently. Zip the whole thing up and have the K2000 run the batch file contained in the zip. Example:

Create your directory structure:
LenovoDrivers\PowerMgmt\Pwrmgmtdrivers.exe
\Biometric\Biometricdrivers.exe
\Audio\Audiodrivers.exe
\Video\Videodrivers.exe

Then create a batch file called InstallDrivers.bat at the root of LenovoDrivers with the following script:

cd PowerMgmt && Pwrmgmtdrivers.exe /s
cd..
cd Biometric && Biometricdrivers.exe /s
cd..

Etc, etc. Also, I'm just using /s as an example. Use whatever silent installation switches the Lenovo executables support.

Finally, you will zip up everything in the LenovoDrivers folder and create a new post-installation application task. Upload the zip file as the payload and type the name of your batch file in the Command Line box.
