MDT starting to inject wrong drivers...especially HD controller drivers?

    Question

  • What I have for imported drivers on my MDT

    Optiplex 740
    Optiplex 755
    Optiplex 760
    Optiplex 790
    Latitude E6420
    Precision M6600
    Inspirion 6400
    Dimension 5150
    Latitude D630
    Optiplex 745
    Latitude D531

    I created Win 7 x64, Win 7 x86, and Win XP x86 folders in the Out-of-Box drivers.  Imported the respective OS and architecture drivers into the folders.

    In Advanced Config | selection profiles, I created Win 7 x64, Win 7 x86, and Win XP x86 profiles.  Each selection profile is associated with the respective out-of-box drivers folder as previously mentioned.

    For task sequence, let's say "deploy win xp x86 to target", I have that associated with the win xp x86 profile.

    Once in a while after doing the deploying of OS and on first reboot, the machine (could be any model) would BSOD and then restarts.  And it's a never-ending cycle, which leads me to think the wrong HD controller drivers got injected.

    How can I go about fixing that????

  • I'm just curious if you're using scenario #2 or #3 to deploy your drivers per Johan's documentation (http://www.deployvista.com/Default.aspx?tabid=78&EntryID=132)?

    If your right and its HD controller related, chances are MDT could be pulling down an older version of the Intel Matrix Storage Drivers.  I had this BSOD problem with my Dells up until I forced them all to use the latest 8.9.0.1023 version.

    It's #2 that I've implemented. 

    So should I delete all old instances of INtel Matrix Storage Drivers from each profile? and have just one single newest version?

  • That's what fixed it for me.  I followed the instructions via this post: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistadeployment/thread/98f123d4-9190-4169-a376-7a0caf0ffb2a

    If that doesn't work, you may want to alter your deployment scenario for drivers.  We're using #3 for total control to avoid any future conflicts.

    I ended up doing an overhaul of MDT and implement #3

    So for example:

    out-of-box-drivers: "optiplex 760 win xp 32 bit" folder which has all the win xp 32 bit drivers for the optiplex 760 imported

    selection profile: "optiplex 760 win xp 32 bit" profile that has "optiplex 760 win xp 32 bit" out-of-box drivers folder selected

    task sequnce: "optiplex 760 win xp 32 bit deployment" with a win xp 32 bit .wim image selected (I only have one which I've created when I implemented #2).  In the preinstall section, I specified  "optiplex 760 win xp 32 bit" profile for where the drivers are to be injected.

    I did the above three for all the other models of desktops and laptops.
