driver and selection profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Why do we have to do the following steps , what does it mean 

    1. Still in the Windows PE tab, select the Drivers and Patches tab, and configure the following: 
      1. Selection profile: Nothing
      2. Select the Include all drivers from selection profile option 

    Thanks

  • You do that when using a total control method of driver injection, but for PE you will want to make a WinPE selection profile that only has WinPE drivers.

    Use the guide here: MDT 2013 Lite Touch Driver Management

  • To explain your current settings, essentially you are injecting no drivers into your WinPE boot image as the selection profile is set to nothing.

    If this were a task sequence using the same configuration but you first set the variable "Set DriverGroup001" then the drivers from the value you set would be injected for example:

    this would inject all the drivers in the Windows 10 x64 folder that matched your exact make and model. It's important that the folders exactly match the reported names.

  • Best advice is to follow the Driver guide, the link I posted earlier. If you're using a recent version of MDT then use the WinPE 10 drivers. Keep your PE drivers down to just what is needed which is pretty much just storage and network.
