How to manage windows deployment services drivers

How are people filtering and managing their drivers on their WDS servers? Is there any way I can do mange drivers with less complexity? For example can I use a single boot image for all my machines even if they have different hardware so long as all the drivers are made available to that boot image? Likewise, can I do the same thing for capture images?


Thank you

Yes you can use a boot wim with multiple NIC and HDD drivers.

For best results and less complexity, use MDT (Free).

BTW what OS is that you want to deploy?

Win 7 Pro 64-bit. Why do you suggest we use MDT instead of WDS? MDT seemed like much more hassle?  (I still need a boot CD, if I want to multicast I need WDS anyways, any change requires that I re-create the boot CD). I was looking yesterday for ways to integrate the two but I couldn't find anything really,
