    1. Make sure that you have a valid RIS image, with a valid license key applied.
    2. Copy all the OEM-supplied driver files for the device into the folders that you created in the previous step.
    3. Edit RISTNDRD.SIF to specify the location of the plug and play drivers.
    4. Stop and restart the RIS service on the head node.

    Riprep and Sysprep share much of the same functionality; therefore, when you add OEM Plug and Play drivers to computers that will be imaged, this process involves steps similar to those used for Sysprep. Before you run Riprep against the image computer to copy it to the RIS server, follow these steps: (etc.)

  • Hi, most likely the video driver you are using is the one you have to run setup to work. You need to use the OEM version of the drivers.

    But why not using MDT and/or SCCM for that? That way it's possible to create driver packages with specific drivers needed during deploy.

    With WDS (successor of RIS) on Windows Server 2008 R2 there's also support for that.

  • I work for a gov agency and unfortunately we haven't updated to WDS. I guess i need to know what should go into the video folder for that model?

  • I just got approved to upgrage to WDS. My understanding is that I would have to recapture my RIS setup images. Does that capture remember all local security settings? and desktop settings? How do I add drivers for legacy hardware? Also is it possible to setting run scripts?
