DPINSTALL Issues



  • Just seeing if anyone might know a possible solution to this issue. I am having issues with my image and DPINSTALL. Process goes as follows; Unit is syspreped and put into oobe, The unattend file skips all the hoopla of oobe, its only purpose is to get it into a second run environment so dpinstall can run and this is the bat file that unattend.xml calls.

    sc config “fog service” start= auto
    cd c:\drivers
    7z.exe x c:\drivers\x64.7z
    "dpinst.exe" /c
    net start "fog service"
    net stop "fog service"
    net start “fog service”

    Dpinstall is supposed to look for the device then match it with the driver that is in the folder that is extracted. The problem is that once everything is all said and done the machines refuses to install graphics drivers and usb 3.0 drivers(intel or amd). The xml for dpinstall is set to install even if unsigned which all of the drivers are and after the machine is imaged I can go into the folder and install the drivers with device manager. Anybody have any ideas for better ways of doing this? Our biggest problem is we have about 10-15 models of machines to deploy to and it is big an issue creating an image for each one.

    Hi,

    If you manually update a device driver after installation with the DP have you some problems ?

    Then you’re 15 hops, skips, and jumps away from having 15 images…

    I maintain an image for each model at my building, and I build each from scratch. You’re waaayyy closer already with what you’ve already done.

    Just un-do you’re driver deployment after you’ve got your 15 machines built the way you like.[/quote]

    The problem is we have 14 different schools that are spread across the state. Some of these schools do not have the kind of equipment to put 11gb images x15 on the servers. That is why I am trying to find a better solution.
