sccm 2012 driver installation during task sequence

well where do I start I'm familiar with wds and not sccm so much. I'm starting to make some progress other than the fact it seems that half the drivers that I got for the dell driver package that I downloaded don't install, and also one of the applications in the task sequence seems to fail everytime causing the system to abort, haven't found much in these cryptic logs. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe the driver package is not the exact model.

You have 2 problems drivers and application installation .. work on 1 at a time.  Start with drivers.
There are many ways to install drivers when deploying operating systems. The most used way is to put the drivers into the driverstore and let windows plug and play select the most appropriate driver. based upon the UUID.. which doesn't always work. Apply Driver Packages (always works)

the app install fails due to network connectivity. thanks for the link I may try using the unattended.XML file as well and see which works best.

it appears to work with the link you provided David, but my question is the wmi query looking at sccm for the package? and if so how does it identify the machine ? or do I have to change that every time I go to image a different piece of hardware?

doesn't appear the wmi query works for some reason or another it bluescreens after the image install, but appears that it has something to do with the storage driver that is either in pe or the install image.

are we starting with the install.wim that came one the o/s disk or is this a captured.wim from a working machine? If from a capture, physical machine or virtual machine. if physical machine then that is the problem.

As for drivers yes you need a different driver package for each model of machine and SCCM/MDT will query the machines bios for make and model and use the appropriate driver package.

thanks david. I'm not totally sure on the image as I inherited this system. It appears its captured and from what the previous admin told me it was done in a vm. After I shut it down and restart the task sequence picks back up and installs everything fine. I will probably close this now as you've helped me get to where I need to be looks like the rest would need to be a different post!
