Is anyone able to help me with this please?
As someone who is knew to LANDesk, HII looks really simple but I just cant seem to get it to work.
I tried a different piece of hardware earlier, but this time it just failed at the HII stage, even though I imported all the drivers.
Any help or good 'getting started' guides would be appreciated.
did you make sure to keep the video drivers within the image while syspreping? If not, the drivers will be removed.
Using the setup.exe with the appropriate command line switches should work perfectly. Extract the downloaded file from Dell and check the Readme.txt for the silent switch.
Also make sure that you understand and implement the HII correctly following the links on this site: OS Deployment and Provisioning. There are several docs referring to HII.
I managed to get to work by using the setup.exe with appropriate switches, but I could only seem to get it work as a seperate software deployment action later in my template. However, weirdly it has now stopped working and failing at this stage for no apparent reason! Argh.
How do I make sure that a keep the video drivers within the image while sysprepping as you describe?
Sorry, didnt notice that was a link - i wll have a read!
I've checked my documentation:
- Keep drivers during Sysprep: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Sysprep\Settings\sppnp\PersistAllDeviceInstalls = 1
This should do the trick without fiddling too much with the unattend.xml.
You don't need Distribution Package per se. You could simply use the "execute file" action.
