Driver Groups Windows 7 & Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, fairly new to MDT after spending years with SCCM & OSD. 

    I am trying to get drivers working for both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. I have two task sequences Windows 8.1 deploy and Windows 7 Deploy. After looking at various posts on how to manage drivers I got Windows 7 working by adding Out-of-Box drivers for each model creating a folder for each model (retreiving the model name from WMI)

    so e.g I have folder structure Workstation\Windows 7\x64\Latitude E6410

    Then in custom settings.ini I added

    DriverGroup001=Workstation\Windows 7\x64\%model%

    Then in the task sequence I have an Inject Drivers step, and select "Install all drivers from the selection profile" with select profile set to nothing. This seems to work fine. 

    How do I get t his working for Windows 8 models ? Just add another DriverGroup like

    DriverGroup002=Workstation\Windows 8\x64\%model% or would I need to set e.g task sequence variables  in the task sequence for the OS ? Can I set DriverGroup001 as a task sequence variable ?

    Appreciate any help as I tad confused ! Thanks
