Any pointers on the best way to organise your drivers within OSD?
I've got a fresh start on the drivers right now, and tomorrow I'm going to start putting them all in but i want to start it right ... so any tips? because this can often get very messy as I'm sure you're all aware.
What deployment method you use?
I use MDT with driver filtering so all is handled within the MDT wizard really
MDT Script – Clean the Make and Model WMI Queries | RS Applications
If you use mdt driver groups are the way to go :)
Mine is as simple as the Manufacturer > Model > Component > Driver
Barely have any drivers at all on ours. just the basics, windows 7 sorts the rest! Helps sticking with Intel kit though.
For us, unified drivers go in a 'common' folder since they are not model specific. Some examples...
This is what the folder structure looks like:
Perfect @Arthur just the sort of thing i was after :)
@Jamo at the moment I'm not making use of MDT, i have it installed and available to me but I'm still learning SCCMs in and outs, I'll probably get there eventually :p
EDIT: What are the main benefits of MDT? What additional functionality does it add specifically?
That's what I do too @Arthur
When integrated with SCCM? This post explains a few reasons why you would want to use both.
