Deploy anywhere "critical drivers missing" 7.1 issue
So far everything has been running pretty smoothly, I can capture and deploy a win7 image, send out patches, remote control, etc.
I'd like to move towards a hardware independent win7 image. It seems that deployanywhere in 7.1 is supposed to take the place of copying down drivers via a script based on model
Everytime I check the box for "Include DeployAnywhere for hardware independent imaging" the deploy task fails and the deployanywhere.log file says "retargeting has been cancelled because some critical drivers are missing."
In CMS, driver database management, I've tried uploading drivers for this model (Latitude e6400) 2 different ways.
I've downloaded the win7x86 drivers from dell from this site and imported them folder by folder (so I did the audio folder, the network folder, etc). http://dell.to/2oxlH
I wish the import tool told you "imported X drivers successfully."... the only way I know some drivers are going in to the database is because the total number of drivers in my database increases.
When that didn't solve the problem, I tried booting into win7 on that base machine and then running drivermax and that downloaded a whole bunch of drivers not already in my database. Again, folder by folder, I uploaded various drivers to the database (this took awhile)... Most folders did upload a driver successfully, but a few said one of the 2 following errors:
"Driver(s) addition failed. This has happened due to the following reason(s):(1)Driver not found in selected folder"
"driver not recognized.""
Tried again after uploading 50+ drivers from drivermax, but still same error during deployment saying critical drivers missing.
Is there any good way to upload drivers to deploy anywhere with 7.1 other than folder by folder (it doesn't seem to look 2 folders deep)?
I'm using a rdeploy image if that matters - maybe I'll try ghost next. I'm not sure what else to do to troubleshoot this further. Anyone have ideas?
