It took me some time to figure everything out since I had never built, configured or used MDT or WDS, but once it was all setup, it worked great. With all of our Windows 7 deployments, there have been no problems at all and we've got quite a few different HP models we've been deploying to. Here's a screenshot reference:.

Adding drivers to WinPE boot image in MDT 2010/2012

Based on some of the keywords in the errors and a few Google searches, I know that I need to add the drivers for the storage controller, but I'm a little leery about how to proceed I don't want to accidentally screw up all the work I did earlier in the year Part of me wants to try to take the easy route and just download the official drivers from HP's site and import them into the same "Hewlett-Packard" folder I mentioned above, and then update my MDT image.

But I also don't want to risk screwing up my current working image I know I'm possibly opening a can of worms with this post, but I'd rather proceed cautiously and get some expert advice before I move forward with this task. Ohhhh, wait a minute. You need to build the boot images with a selection profile that includes those new drivers. You are still building it currently with "Nothing" selected correct?

I have seen it go good and bad. I'll dive into this a little deeper as it isn't quite clear on how your MDT is setup. There are two parts to the MDT deployment.

It sounds like you are getting stuck on the very beginning of the deployment where the Windows PE portion of MDT doesn't have proper drivers in order for it to kick off and reach your deployment share to then kick off and start the actual deployment. The latest two are WinPE I think I have WinPE 5. You'll want to download those drivers to your hard drive and import them into your deployment.

Make a folder called something like "Windows PE Dell 5. Call it something similar Windows PE Dell 5. Point it to the drivers you added a moment ago. Now, right-click on your deployment share and go to its properties. Under the "Windows PE" tab, you'll first want to select the platform defaults to x86 and be sure the "Scratch space size" is set to a large enough amount mine isthen click on the "Drivers and Patches" tab. I have the boxes checked for including only the network and mass storage drivers, but I believe that is all that is included in those PE drivers anyways.

Be sure you repeat that last section for both the x86 and xI then tried to deploy the captured.

From what I understand this stop error means it can't access the boot drive. Does that look normal? Is there really that much compression for wim image? I didn't get any errors during the image capture process. When creating a reference image you need to do that on a virtual machine. I prefer Hyper-V since that is less hassle.

It complains about the CPU is to slow. But again I prefer Hyper-V since it works out of the box.

It is a good practice to have two deployment shares. One for creating images step The other is for deploying your reference images step If you do this then step 1 is moved to before step 7. To your other question. Yes the compression is quite good.

But you also need to know that it only copies files and skipping some like pagefile. It is not a sector-by-sector copy like Ghost.

Also that is only needs to keep a single copy of any duplicated files and that it will just link them to a single hard copy. Also I second creating the base reference image from a Hyper-V virtual machine. Thanks for the replies.

I had follow steps similar to 1 -7 on a physical machine before posting. What's different between deploying a wim file and doing a fresh install from source media? I know that with source media I typically don't have to install any additional drivers for mass storage device.

Is the wim file missing all the in-box drivers that Windows DVD media typically comes with? I'm going to try a virtual image, but what makes virtual image technically superior to using a physical machine?

Does a virtual image has all the generic drivers or I still have to inject every device driver I'm going to need into MDT no matter what? When you deploy your reference image, MDT inject the drivers during deployment. This works really well on Windows 7 type images. WinXP is another matter when using mass storage drivers.

When you use DISM to install a device driver to an offline image, the device driver is added to the driver store in the offline image. When the image is booted, Plug and Play PnP runs and associates the drivers in the store to the corresponding devices on the computer. To learn how to add a driver on a running Windows PC, see Add a driver online in audit mode or Install a plug and play device.

Some driver packages include multiple. During installation, each. Each individual folder has a copy of the payload files. Check to see if the driver was added. This guarantees unique naming for newly added drivers.

For example, the files MyDriver1. Remove a specific driver from the image. Multiple drivers can also be removed on one command line. Removing a boot-critical driver package can make the offline Windows image unbootable.

All drivers in the directory and subdirectories that are referenced in the answer file are added to the image. You should manage the answer file and these directories carefully to address concerns about increasing the size of the image with unnecessary driver packages.

See Configure components and settings in an answer file for information on how to modify an answer file. For each path in Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPEspecify the path to the device driver and the credentials that are used to access the file, if the file is on a network share. When you include multiple device driver paths by adding multiple PathAndCredentials list items, you must increment the value of Key for each path. For example, you can add two separate driver paths where the value of Key for the first path is equal to 1 and the value of Key for the second path is equal to 2.

If you need drivers for WinPE to see the local hard disk drive or a network, you must use the windowsPE configuration pass of an answer file to add drivers to the WinPE driver store and to reflect boot-critical drivers required by WinPE.

Info: The operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors. Surely, I cannot be the first person who has tried to use Workstation 11 as a tool to create master images for MDT How can I fix this driver issue? I'll try disabling the driver in MDT, but that kind of defeats the point of having them there in the first place. I am trying to create an image of Windows 7 Professional x I'm having the exact same issue, except I'm using Workstation Did you ever get it resolved?

I just disabled that particular driver in MDT. Error: You don't have JavaScript enabled. This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without it enabled. Please turn JavaScript back on and reload this page.

Retrieving data Correct Answers - 10 points.Dec 03 How many times you needed to inject drivers in your ESXi image because they are missing for your specific component?

A lot of times I bet, especially if you have new hardware or servers build using custom components in order to make a home lab. Usually the storage and the network drivers are the problem here, especially the network, since is the first one that is checked during an ESXi installation.

If the driver is missing an error message is displayed and installation cannot continue:. Either no network adapters are physically connected to the system, or a suitable driver could not be located. A third party driver may be required. Ensure that there is at least one network adapter physically connected to the system before attempting installation. If the problem persists, consult the VMware Knowledge Base. If not, well… search the internet and maybe someone compiled a driver for that specific hardware.

As a last resort, if none of the above proved successful, you will have to compile your own driver using the ESXi Community Packaging Tools. Compiling the driver is not just a click and next operation, but it gets the job done. When done, press the Run! The ESXi version is automatically detected. Go to the working directory provided in the tool and you should find the customized ISO along with a log file there.

Nice tool and also handy. The only hard part is to find the proper driver in the supported format, but most of them are out there on the internet compiled for ESXi. Give it a try and see if it works for you.

Just in our environment, MDT took us from 51 separate client images to one image, allowed us to remotely image entire sites, and to completely get out of managing drivers!

Driver deployment with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) - Part 1: OS deployment

In this two part post, we are going to focus on that last project. We are going to structure a driver store and use our MDT share as a remote driver installation server. Meaning that you, our Windows Administrator, will never have to visit a client to install a printer, scanner, or some silly device again. Got your attention? Note: This post assumes that your MDT environment is already configured. If you are just getting started with MDT, I would strongly recommend reading this Introduction to MDT as well as this excellent step-by-step walkthrough.

Although they are written for MDTthe setup and structure still applies. The Out-of-Box Drivers folder showing two created sub-folders. When organizing drivers, Microsoft allows you to logically organize based on any number of schemes.

The scheme that I found to work the best is to divide drivers up by the intended operating system. To make organization easier, I then break up the operating system folder into architecture subfolders. Finally, for every unique computer model that we have, a subfolder is created under the correct architecture folder. Note: The model folders above have to exactly match the model reported by each computer or driver installation will fail. Although this is a pain to setup the first time, it will make your driver management life very easy!

When you retire a particular device model, you can simply delete the corresponding MDT driver folder. When a driver needs to be updated, you will always know exactly where to find it. This folder holds all third party device drivers including those for printers, scanners, and other user-centric hardware. By storing all of our known third party device drivers here, we can have our imaging computers install drivers for any attached hardware.

This means no more imaging a computer and having to come back later in order to install a personal printer! Now that our Deployment Share has a driver folder for each model, we need to create a Selection Profile for each model. A selection profile essentially is a filter that can be used in our task sequence.

When you create a selection profile, you will be prompted for a name and a folder to select.

For the model specific profiles, select only the corresponding driver folder. The final piece to the puzzle is a rather simple change in our task sequence.

It should look like:. This variable basically tells the task sequence to only search for applicable drivers under the equivalent computer model folder. We next need to alter our existing Inject Drivers task.

It should be changed to the following:. Now, we need to make sure those pesky third party devices get installed. To do this, add a new Inject Drivers task directly below the existing one. And for our last edit, we will disable the post Inject Drivers task.

Select the Inject Drivers task under PostInstall. Select Options and then Disable this step. We are done and ready to image!
