I have a Win7 task sequence in SCCM 2012 that deploys to HP Z-series workstations.  Our workstations have NVIDIA Quadro PCIe video cards installed.  My package for the Quadro installer uses "setup.exe -n -s" to install silently, but the computer always restarts, causing the task sequence to fail.  Any ideas on how to properly suppress the restart?

According to this article the -n MUST precede the -s.

So it should be: "setup.exe -n -s" instead of "setup.exe -s -n".

  • Thanks. I'm using version 259.70, and my syntax does use "-n -s" in the correc order. I'm sorry that I posted that incorrectly in my original question. So, to recap, using "setup.exe -n -s" on quadro 4000 driver version 259.70 installed in a HP z800 workstation, the driver install is triggering a restart.

Did you try creating response file (.iss)?

  • NVIDIA includes an ISS with the driver package just for silent installs. I didn't create but I did use theirs.
  • Create a new one with reboot suppressed
