    Explain HII - IDE - AHCI


      Hello Community,


      there are many discussions about Issues with integrating AHCI Controller Drivers per HII... but there is no complete Statement how it works.


      My Demmand:


      I want to create an WINXP Image (Wim File) and want to bring out it on devices using IDE oder AHCI Mode in Bios dynamically.

      But i don't want to insert all kind of Drivers in advance, because i don't know the Controllers in the next Hardware Modell and i don't want

      to open WIM File everytime we have to import new Drivers...


      There is a post where LANDesk says you have to modify the Registry before capturing? LINK: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-8455

      Is this necessary with Version 9 SP3?


      Can anyone of the LANDesk Experts explain how it works - HII with Injecting AHCI Drivers, and using it dynamically on IDE or AHCI?

          Take a look at this document:

          http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-7945 It will explain the LANDesk HII way of dealing with MassStorage Drivers.


          If you allow me a small plug, we as Axle-IT also have an alternative HII tool for both XP, Win7 and Win7x64 that handles Mass Storage Drivers (without extra configuration), HAL differences (XP), unsigned Win7 drivers, generic drivers and setup (setup.exe) based drivers. It gives the ability to 'sign off' on a model (drivers per model) and supports UNC drives and preferred servers. Fast and very easy to use and control. This toolset is free for our customers (which are happy excellent references) but we also offer it for a very small fee to other LANDesk users. Contact me for more information if you are interested.
