Hi guys.

We are about to add windows 10 machines into our network.

I will have to build a new KBE (WinPE 10) / Driver Pack 10.

We will still have a significant win 7 presence though.

So it going to be a mixed network of OS deployments.... (Both win 7 and win 10)

Now  my question.... I will need  WinPE 3 Driver Pack for win 7 deployments.....

and I will need  WinPE 10 Driver Pack for win 10 deployments.

But all the documentation from kace says .....and I Quote.........

(Please note that you should only have the drivers for one WinPE version at a time in the kbe_windows_xXX folders).

Does the win 10 Driver pack have drivers for win 10 and all previous window 8.1, 8.0, and 7 incorporated into it ??  OR do

I have to copy and re-cache the drivers for each KBE into the k2 driver folder for each time I deploy that

version ?

You only need to change the driver pack when building the KBE. It is considered best practice to always download the latest driver pack and update the server before creating a new KBE. Once the KBE is created the drivers are no longer used. We still have our older Windows 7 KBE on the appliance as a boot option.

you don't
It is also not nessesary.
You can build W7 systems with W10 KBE but not vice versa.
