Adding Windows device drivers to the boot image

Although the IBM® Deployment Pack adds drivers to the driver catalog during installation and adds drivers to the Windows® PE boot images, you might require additional network or storage drivers.

About this task
Add any additional drivers in the boot image that you require for Windows PE to boot correctly.
  1. Launch Microsoft Configuration Manager 2007 to open the Configuration Manager console.
  2. Click System Center Configuration Manager > Site Database > Computer Management > Operating System Deployment > Drivers.
  3. Select one or more drivers to add.
  4. Right-click the selection and click Add or Remove Drivers to Boot Images.
  5. In the dialog box, specify one or more boot images that should receive the additional drivers. To select all available boot images, click Select All.
  6. Update the distribution points.
    • To update distribution points immediately, select Update distribution points when finished.
    • To update distribution points at a later time, right-click the Distribution Point node under the boot image to be updated, and then click Update Distribution Points.

      Boot images with the added drivers are not actively available to computers until they are updated on distribution points.
