How can I install drivers which require .NET Framework when deploying Windows with MDT? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am deploying Windows 7 using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). 
    I have imported all of my drivers and I have modified the task sequence to inject drivers in the pre-install phase however, after testing my deployment, I have discovered some unknown devices in the device manager.

    I have come to the conclusion that the unknown devices exist because their drivers have a requirement of .NET framework 4.

    How can I install .NET framework 4 before installing the drivers? I was assuming that applications can only be installed in post-installation therefore, they HAVE to be installed after the drivers BUT, the drivers depend on the .NET framework? This is a catch-22!
