"A connection to the deployment share could not be made. The following networking device did not have a driver installed" - Before booting into LiteTouch x64. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know this is a commonly asked question. I believe I've followed all the steps within this guide.

    "https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/3e083173-f5db-48e9-b744-f71b9ca6541c/how-to-debug-missing-drivers-in-mdt?forum=mdt"

    The machine I'm trying to build is a Dell OptiPlex 7040, I've downloaded the cab file from the Dell Support page, and I've updated the Deployment Share, and then replaced the .wim file. 

    I beg any help!!

    Did you add PE drivers? If not download the latest PE drivers from Dell - http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/11530.winpe-10-driver-pack

    Add them to MDT and follow the Lite Touch Driver management method

  • I seem to have the same issue with the OptiPlex 7040.

    Ok, so I have downloaded and imported the Win10PE driver pack. I also downloaded the Intel NIC drivers from the Microsoft Catalog, as well as the Opt7040 Win10 x64 driver cab file, and imported these.

    However, still having the problem.  PXE boots fine, but going into LiteTouch seems to the issue.  Pressed F8 and did ipconfig /all command, which indicates that the device does not get an IP address from the DHCP server. 

    I am by no means the MDT expert, and only recently dipped my toes into this tech.  However, I would have thought that if the device is able to PXE boot, it is an indication that the correct driver has been imported.  Thus, the device receives an IP address during the initial PXE boot, but not able to get into the LiteTouch boot process.  The error I receive at the LiteTouch section is as follows:

    Connection to deployment share (\\\server\deploymentshare$) cannot be made.  Following networking device did not have the driver installed

    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15B7&SUBSYS_06B91028&REV_31

    I have used Johan's Total Control recommendation ( http://deploymentresearch.com/Research/Post/325/MDT-2013-Lite-Touch-Driver-Management) and works great with other systems.  Only have this issue with 7040.

    Any advise or assistance greatly appreciated.

  • So I take you have a PE selection profile. Have you checked Dell's cab file site to make sure you have the latest PE cab pack? When new models come out you sometimes need to update your PE drivers. I had to do that when we started getting the latest XPS 13 (9350).

    Also PXE doesn't rely on drivers you add to MDT, it doesn't work that way.

  • Yes, I have downloaded and imported the latest Dell Winpe10 driver pack (http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/11530.winpe-10-driver-pack) into my WinPE Selection profile.

    However, I managed to find my (stupid) mistake.  Long story short, I noticed the WinPE driver folder was not selected in my Selection Profile.  Now the system PXE boots and deploys through LiteTouch.  Now I receive similar messages once the device boots after deployment, but that I'm sure will be similar to resolve by importing the drivers etc.

    Thanks a lot for the prompt response, and the nudge to resolve this!

  • Yup, drivers for the client OS will be the ones you add to the folder for OS you are deploying (that is for those using the driver management method from Johan Arwidmark).

  • RESOLVED THIS!!!!

    I had THIS EXACT SAME ISSUE and was able to resolve this by first removing the "Network" driver folder and importing all the other drivers. Once they have imported, I then imported the folder with the "Network drivers."

    Not sure why the order mattered since I didnt think it did when importing, but it works. If anyone has any ideas why that is the case please let me know.

  • Hi we are trying to deploy our 7040s as well and are seeing this, were you ever able to fix this issue? Thanks!

  • Be sure to update your CAB packs from Dell. I haven't had issues deploying to any 7040 systems but I always update my drivers when new packs come out.

    http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/2065.dell-command-deploy-driver-packs-for-enterprise-client-os-deployment

    If you aren't already doing so, I'd recommend the Total Control method of driver management.
