    Yes. MDT 2010 (and 2012) both support importing drivers directly from CAB files. See this PDF from Dell for more info (page 10 onwards).

    Cheers Arthur. That saves me re-inventing the wheel.

    Should anyone need it...

    Deploy Windows 8 using MDT 2012 Update 1 « Deployment Research

    Windows 8 RTM is now available and so is the deployment solution to deploy it. As of this writing (August 19, 2012) MDT 2012 Update 1 is the only deployment solution by Microsoft that supports deploying the final version of Windows 8. The other deployment solution Microsoft has, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, will not support Windows 8 until the SP1 update is released later this year.

    Note: Yes, I know: Technically you can use plain vanilla Windows Deployment Services (WDS) and ADK to deploy Windows 8, but that's not a deployment solution. WDS and ADK are only plumbing tools for deployment, not a deployment solution, and MDT 2012 Update 1 will use them in the background anyway. Please do not waste your time trying to build a deployment solution on WDS and ADK, Microsoft has already done it for you: It's named MDT 2012 Update 1!

    Hi everyone,
    I have captured an image using MDT2010 Litetouch however, I am getting the following error when deploying the image:

    A Connection to the deployment share (\\Server\DeploymentShare$)
    could not be made. The following networking device did not have a driver installed. PCI\VEN_8086 ... ..


    I injected the network driver in workbench with original driver CD that came with Stone PC. My feeling is that the driver is not WinPE compatible. If anyone knows about the solution that would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you rebuild the pxe boot image after injecting the driver? If you don't do this it will never make the deliver available in the pxe stage only the later stages

    Right click on the deployment share in the workbench and select update deployment share.

    Do you use pxe boot? If you do you will have to add the resulting WIM image to wds :-)
