    LANDesk Management Suite 9.5 SP1 - Best Practice HII 9.5SP1 for DELL Computers

    ldms_4mfe Apprentice

      I want to show you how I fixed all of our HII Problems in 9.5 SP1 and dramatically speeded up the provisioning process with a few simple steps.
      We working with this method for weeks now without any problems...so I wanted to share it to the community.

       

      Benefits:

      No DELL USB 3.0 Driver Problems, No more Blue Screens after StandBy Mode, No mixing of drivers because of generic Hardware IDs, massivly speeded up Provisioning Process

       

      Steps:

      1. Create a Driver Share like this

        You get this Drivers from here: Dell Driver CAB files for Enterprise Client OS Deployment
      2. Become familiar with the oldschool Copydrivers.exe-Tool and populate the .ini like this.

      3. Edit your Provisioning Template
        Map a Network Drive to preferred Server

        Run the Copydrivers.exe with /c

        Run the Microsoft DISM-Command
        x:\windows\system32\dism.exe
        /image:c:\ /add-driver /driver:"c:\Drivers" /recurse /forceunsigned

      4. DELETE HII from the Template (its not needed in the POST-OS Section anymore)

      Now your Windows Installation has all drivers that are needed right for this computer model.
