Importing drivers to MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a driver structure in MDT that is based on OS\vendor\model style and I'm using drivergroups to apply drivers. When Importing drivers to MDT should I select the import duplicate driver or not? Many models share same drivers so if I dont choose the duplicate option some models might miss some drivers if I'm understanding correctly.

  • Assuming you have your OOB driver folder set up correctly, you don't need to re-import the driver.  Just have it "copy" the driver and it will work.

    Also, once I find a working driver to get the system to PXE, I *never* update it again.  I perform all driver updates (NIC, Storage, Chipset, etc) afterwards via the TS.  I only put my Storage and NIC drivers into the boot image and OOB folder.
