So I have various machines on my network and I want to inject the drivers that are specific to each machine. I can do this using conditional statements on my inject drivers sequence. The problem is that there are some machines for which the drivers are the same. How do I write a conditional statement in which I can group all these systems into one step instead of having different "inject driver" steps for each system? Like can I have a conditional statement such as:
If all conditions are true
Task sequence variable %model% equals "model 1"
Task sequence variable %model% equals "model 2"
Task sequence variable %model% equals "model 3"

The Deployment Bunny Mikael Nystrom has a great post on a user exit script to create a model alias using a user exit script.
Also, A must read is Johan's post on drivers here: http://www.deployvista.com/Blog/JohanArwidmark/tabid/78/EntryID/132/language/en-US/Default.aspx

Have you read this blog?
It's only possible to target a set of drivers via a selection profile, so I think the thing that you want is just not possible.
Keep us posted, and if helpful please rate! Kind regards

Incorrect, you can target drivers by their Out-of-Box location folder by changing the DriverGroup00n path on the fly within the TS, although i agree it is much easier by profiles.

It is much easier to use DriverGroup value in customsettings.ini because I won't have to create a new selection profile for every model I add.
Instead I simply write this entry ONCE in the customsettings.ini (I had to add a bit more logic to it as I am deploying several different OS but it is still easier to maintain in the long run. Just imagine how easy it is for someone else to add drivers to the share!)
