In Task Sequence Add Driver Package, and use wmi query to target model.


They have also created a WinPE boot image driver pack, This you extract, import to SCCM, and add to respectivly X86/X64 boot images. Nice!

The CCTK, gives you ability to turn on TPM chip, set password, BIOS setting etc..
You can eiter inject it to the Boot image, or just use it like a Application package, and run commands.
The second option is the easyest.


The Dell Client Integration Pack 2.0 (DCIP) is an updated version of the Dell Client Deployment Pack (DCDP) plugin for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. In addition to the task sequence and driver deployment functionality of DCDP, it also includes:

  3. Cool I got that working, thanks for the info Nicolai. Is there a way to incorporate a function where it notifies you when servers are 90 days (for example) away from expiring?
