Including multivendor drivers in a single image?

I wish to create a single windows image that i can deploy to an entire site.

The issue is, the site is made up of a few different vendors PC's and with them

multiple models.  This means hardware is different for each client.

Is it possible or, how is it possible to prepare a clean image an automate

the installation of drivers during or after deployment as there are over 200 PC's

Upload your drivers to \\k2name\drivers_postinstall. 

Then also run this.

  • Thank you. I am pretty new to this, can i copy the drivers off an existing PC install?
    or do i have to download them from say the support sites? If i have to download them do they need to be unzipped? - obakk 10 years ago
    • Download them from the vendor, and extract them. You don't need to copy the exe's over. - dugullett 10 years ago
  • You can download driver packages from the vendor sites. If you go to the Library tab in the K2K, you can download the KACE Driver Harvesting Utility to extract the drivers from an existing PC. - philologist 10 years ago
  • Yeah, i have used the driver harvesting tool. But this seems to only allow them to be used in the boot environment.

    Do i have to setup a post install script for them to be deployed to a PC after it is imaged? - obakk 10 years ago
    • The post install task is included in the zip for that link. I always set it as the first one.

      Make sure to include call driver_feed_mid_task.bat in your command line for the midlevel task. http://www.itninja.com/question/scripted-installs-not-rebooting-after-is-installs - dugullett 10 years ago

  • thanks SMal.tmcc - obakk 10 years ago
  • I have gateway's, lenovo's and dell's, laptops and desktops incorporated this way. I have one 32 and one 64 bit image for all my admin machines. - SMal.tmcc 10 years ago
  • This takes a while to get all drivers in your master, but after that you only need to add for new models and delete for old ones. Usualy the staff will test on new models and if they had to add any drivers, they will let me know what they were so I can add them to the image. - SMal.tmcc 10 years ago
