Drivers Driving you Crazy? Here's a Tale to Ease the Torment
At our company we manage seven different computer models. They're all HP, but not all of them have the same chipset.
Here's a problem we ran into and, of course, how we solved it.
We had problems using the same image for the HP DC5000, DC5100, and DC5700 models. I could get one image to work between the DC5100 and the DC5000, but not the DC5700. Then I tried another image and got it to work with the DC5700 and DC5100 but not the DC5000.
It turns out that Intel has drivers that work with the DC5000 and DC5100, and then another that works with the DC5700 and the DC5100, but no driver that will work between the DC5000 and DC5700. I did some research on Intel's website and looked at older drivers to confirm this.
The solution for us is to have one image that works on all models -- but the DC5700 -- and a separate image that works for the DC5700. In the image job on Deployment Server, I just added a condition for the DC5700 to use a different image for that computer model.
