    Search network share for drivers. Have changed the regitry but still not playing.

    Hi,

    We have some laptops that refuse to pickup the USB drivers from when deployed using MDT.

    My next idea is to set a the network path of the deployment folder into the registry to get winodws to search for drivers there.

    If i copy the USB drivers frolder from the MDT folder to the C drive and add C:\USB to the key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\devicepath
    it picks it up but if i use the share

    \\server\deploy$\out-of-box drivers
    I have no luck.

    I believe its either because of the space or because of permissions.
    I have temp added everone to the sevurity of the folder but had no joy.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    I've had success with this in one school but not another. Haven't looked into why it doesn't work but my first steps would be to change the update search order to "Windows Update Last" and that it would accept 3rd party drivers without intervention. Both of these are somewhere in group policy.

    I'll try to be more precise later if you need me to.

    Cheers
    Gavin
