Drivers not being injected for certain Laptop model RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I am having difficulty getting a new laptop to deploy correctly. I am using MDT 2012 U1.

    I use the DriverGroup001 variable to set the driver group and inject the specific drivers required, and this works perfectly for 10 other models. However we recently acquired some Dell Latitude E7240's and am experiencing a weird problem.

    When deploying from our Production share, the drivers are not injected in the PE stage. However I have tried to deploy the same laptop using our completely separate test network and the drivers are deployed correctly. I have also created a separate test share on our live network (with the same customsettings.ini) and the drivers deploy correctly here as well?! I have placed the drivers in a selection profile to specifically target them during deployment and they are still not injected. Inluding the drivers in the PE image has also not worked.

    So I have narrowed the problem down (I think) to a particular MDT share. I've deleted all the drivers in this share and readded the 7240 drivers with no luck. I've closed the share, rebooted the server and added the drivers with still no luck.

    Looking at the logs I can see why I think it is failing, here are the relevant sections:

    For reasons I cannot figure out, the unsuccessful deployment doesn't find any drivers?? (filtered.count: 0)

    Can anybody help me with this issue? I have been trying the best part of 3 days to fix this and any help would be incredibly appreciated!
