Collect Drivers

In the past, populating deployment shares with drivers was a real nightmare. Thankfully that era is long gone, because if you’re managing hardware from one of the big three hardware vendors, Dell, HP, or Lenovo, you should check out their driver packs. If you’re using HP hardware, one can use the HP SoftPaq Download Manager to download HP driver packs straight from HP. This eliminates the need to play the driver “guess and check” game. If you have Dell hardware, there are driver packs as well. Sad to say however, Lenovo is a little late to this game, only some enterprise class hardware will have packs, but don’t fret, the Lenovo Drivergrabber tool will work well for you as well.
