    Where the heck is it?

    KMS 1.2 for Windows 2008..
    All my shiny new Windows 7 PCs have 12 Days until activation (Tuesday)

    WSUS 3.0 SP2
    WSUS is being a bit hit and miss with Windows 7 clients - some get driver updates, others do not..

    How are driver updates working out for you with WSUS?

    I edged away from it because I couldn't bring myself to trust them after BSoD'ing a large number of laptops due to a driver update pushed via WSUS...

    We dont send drivers out in the event of it messing something up. I have often found sound drivers on Microsoft Update cause problems.

    Never had much issue with WSUS & drivers TBH..

    Just a nightmare at the moment with Win7 insisting on stripping every sodding driver out after sysprep - even those that came with W7!

    Vista only stripped out drivers installed AFTER it had been installed

    isnt there a section of sysprep that tells it not to strip drivers out there was in vista as it always striped out video card drivers for me. In the end i went back and altered my sysprep file and told it not to remove drivers

    could you do it on an external drive(clone with ghost or similar without sysprepping) install 1 set of drivers move to the next pc install its drivers and so on so all driver are in the same image
