MDT 2013 - inject driver for Dell Latitude E7280 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I'm having a hard time to inject drivers for the new Dell Latitude 7280 and 7480. Injecting drivers is something I have done thousand times with older Dell models, so I don't really expect problems.

    We are still a Windows 7 shop and bought the laptop with the skylake processor. I downloaded the Dell cab file for the model.

    In the MDT 2013 workbench under "out of box drivers" I created a folder and imported the cab. After that I created a selection profile and point it to the out of box folder. In the task sequence I create a new task "inject drivers" and choose the selection profile. For the query I use this

    WMI namespace root\cimv2

    Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem where Model like 'Latitude E7280%'

    I see when the task is running the process stays maybe 2 second on inject drivers and then it moves on. Normally I would see each indidual driver names loaded.

    The only thing I imagine that Dell changed something to query the model.

    I run this query from the cmd on the 7280 laptop.

    WMIC computersystem get model

    The result is "Latitude E7280"

    I think my query should be okay for the model number. Not?

    After the deployment stopped, because it couldn't install the NIC drivers and a lot more. I look at the logs in the MININT folders to see if I could spot something. Which log would record the install process where I could see why I didn't load drivers for the inject task?

    Thanks,

  • I figured it out. It was my mistake no reading the exact model. Dell changed the new Latitude to 7280 only. There is no longer the letter E in it. They dropped the E for this model. Dell usually used model numbers like E7270.
