Questions About Mdt 2012 Driver Setup

2018-08-07 Josh Rickard

So I’ve had a lot of questions about my MDT 2012 Driver setup and hopefully this post will explain a little bit about it.  Let me know if you have any questions

Personally I have a folder on my server called _Source_Drivers.  I keep all my drivers here and import them into MDT but keep the original.  Here is what my file structure of this folder looks like.

Once I have my structure setup I then begin to setup the structure on my MDT Deployment Share.  Here is how I currently have it setup as.

MDT Deployment Share Structure

I import the drivers into the specific folders by right clicking the folder in the Deployment Share and import drivers.  I select the folder for that model and import all but select copy the drivers.

Here is what one of the driver sub folders look like in my deployment share

Don’t forget to add your DriverGroup001 variable set with %make%%model% right before the Inject Drivers sequence in your Deployment Task Sequence
