Imaging and Deployment Latest Lattitude
We are having issues deploying sysprepped images to the latitude e5250 and e5270. It seems that the cab file does not deploy all the drivers and we have to go back and later add or read the drivers that were missed. Ex. on the latest e5270 the following were added after the fact as post install tasks.
We had similar issues with the 5250. What are people doing to ensure they get a good build and all the driver are installed from the CAB file? We ran through debug mode to ensure our sysprepped images were good and free from errors. We are spending a ton of time comparing out of box images and drivers to ensure we get good clean builds. Are we missing any tricks?

I have started to go to dell support web site and down the management cab and copy that into the k2000 driver_postinstall area. It takes them time to test them for insertion into the driver feed.
I cast an image and see if all drivers are found. if any are missing I find out what they are and also add them to the proper driver feed directory myself. This then gives me all the driver files I need to image with for that model.
here is a dell 7275 I setup, all drivers were in this package so I did not have to add any
I expand this download and copy it to \\ikbox\drivers_postinstall\dell\windows_10_x64\E7270
This one I had to add drivers after my test image, it is a lenovo T450 in this example, same process for any system
Copy the contents to \\ikbox\drivers_postinstall\lenovo\windows_10_x64\ThinkPad T450
Cast an image to a T450 and check the drivers. I had 6 unknowns, I found the drivers for them on the web and
then added those also the driver feed directory
Now the images cast to T450's without any post fixes
