    Windows Deployment Services - Network Drivers

    Does anyone know of a way to include a wad of network drivers into the boot.wim image?

    Im currently using netbootdisk and ghost which works fine but I want to look into using WDS again.


    Cheers

    I expect that guide will tell you precisely what to do.

    D/l the vista drivers and extract them so that you have the .inf files somewhere.

    Now export your boot.wim and mount it.

    Run the commands you are told in the guide to inject the drivers.

    Unmount and commit the changes.

    Import newly modified boot.wim

    Boot client from this new boot wim.

    IIRC you can also use MDT 2010 and the WAIK to do this graphically. If you have SCCM on the box as well it will even shove everything in the relevant places for that too!

    Yes if you add out of box drivers into the mdt workbench and regenerate your boot files it will inject the nic and mass storage drivers for you.
