Hi, we are using a scripted install for deploying OS' to machines. The machines in question are all Lenovo.

We are using the same scripted install for desktops and laptops however, the laptops require 'other' software to be installed such as Hot Key and fingerprint applications which the desktops do not.

Is it possible to install applications via Post Install Tasks depending on the model number of the machine which the K2000 already knows?

The K2000 itself doesn't really have this ability. It can't branch off a scripted install. Your best bet, if you want to keep it all in a single scripted install, would be to use a batch file or vbscript for each post install task that checks model info from WMI to determine if it should execute the setup.

The other option would be to have separate scripted installs for desktops and laptops, assigning post install tasks as appropriate.
