How are you handling drivers?
Hi, can anyone suggest an effecient method for handling drivers for WIM images using KACE for hardware that is not DELL? We have 23 different computer models covering desktops and laptops (most are just newer versions of the previous model, e.g. HP dc7800 and dc7900). The drivers we need to ensure work post-build is video, network, and sound but I can't download 207 individual driver packages (that's what it would work out to be covering Win7 x86 and x64 and XP x86). Even if I could spare a week to do that, I then have to put the drivers into KACE taking significant time and then create installation tasks for each individual hardware item. Even if I could be bothered doing all of this, the person who ends up building the PC is going to have to know what hardware is in each PC to deploy the right image tasks.
Surely there's an easier way? When it comes to re-maging 500 PC's at once, how will we ensure we deploy the right one to the right PC? This is a problem which at the moment I can't see a way to overcome :(
