Imaging Lenovo devices when Windows 10 version not listed

We are primarily using Dell units, but we have some sites that have a bunch of Lenovo and HP units.  With the Dell units, it is pretty easy to get the drivers because you just pick Windows 10 or 11, but both the HP and Lenovo units it looks like you have to select the specific release of Windows 10 and 11.   There are selections for Windows 10 version 1709 right up through 20H2.

My current standard image is Windows 10 21H2.  Would just picking the latest release of Windows drivers work for these HP and Lenovo units or do I have to upload a 20H2 version to the SDA to match the drivers?

Have you tried using the Driver Harvesting utility on a new Lenovo system? That should copy the correct drivers to the correct place on the SDA Driver share for you to use

This is a known visual bug where Windows 10 21H2 drivers show as 21H1 drivers on driver feed list page.

If you were to open one of those, and look at the Driver Pack details page, you will see the correct OS\Build combo.

  • Channeler, it would be good to know where in the release doc for the SDA this is listed as a known error?? - Hobbsy 1 year ago

I am not even showing the Windows 10 21H1 either. So, does this mean that on some Lenovo units I have to have a matching OS build or would just selecting the highest build number from the list work?

In my case I have a Win 10 21H2 scripted install so would selecting the Windows 10 20H2 drivers work or do I have to have a corresponding 20H2 image?


  • the KACE SDA pulls directly from Lenovo's enterprise repositories. This is one of the manufacturers who decided to release\tag driver packs per build. DELL is not doing this yet... word on the street is , they are going to do so soon...

    I do not see a Win10 21H2 for that model released.

    This is the Source:

    It seems 21H2 was released as Win11 only by LENOVO for that particular model, M720s. - Channeler 1 year ago

      Oh, that will be such a PITA. I hope not. - JordanNolan 1 year ago
