Note: If you are not using Dell computers, you do not need to enable Driver Feed.
Setting up the drivers_postinstall folder
The K2000 appliance uses the drivers_postinstall folder to store drivers for third-party drivers.
Note: You must extract the EXE files to get the actual drivers; otherwise, they will not work.
1. Using your admin account credentials from a Windows computer, map a drive to the drivers_postinstall folder:
2. Open the feed_tools folder.
3. Double-click Get_Manufacturer_Model_OS.vbs.
4. Note the WMI values in the dialog box.
5. Go back to the drivers_postinstall folder and create a folder named for the manufacturer.
For example: TOSHIBA.
6. Open the folder that you just created and create subfolders for the operating systems that you want to deploy.
The folders must be named exactly as shown below:
windows_7_x64 windows_7_x86 windows_vista windows_vista_x64
This list contains all the supported operating systems available for Driver Feed.
7. Once the folders are created, open the folder that corresponds to the operating system that you want to deploy.
8. Create a folder with the exact name for the computer model.
Be sure to name the folder exactly as shown in the discovery tool. For example: Satellite A665.
The K2000 appliance is now ready for adding third-party drivers. After you add drivers to the relevant folder, they are available for Scripted Installations and System Image deployments.
