I am working on migrating our provisioning process over to our new 9.5 SP1 core. Previously, I had used an execute file action in the system configuration section to run the Lenovo Thininstaller for driver installation. This required a separate template for our laptops as we were using HII to do our Intel based desktop machines. I would like to use the HII in 9.5 to have one template for both our desktops and Lenovo laptops.
I downloaded the drivers from Lenovo's support site and tried to extract out the drivers from the exe downloaded with 7Zip and it did not extract to a useable form, ie. there were no inf's in the subfolders extracted. I could pull out the driver files by running the exe and getting the inf's from the folder the driver setup creates, but that seems like it would be more work to maintain than continuing using the Update Retriever/Thininstaller process.
Is there a possibility that I could find a workable solution with Lenovo drivers and HII? Anyone had any success with this? Any other viable solutions?
