Auto install drivers from Internet

Hi,

I am installing lots of Windows 7 machines from SCCM. I have driver packs for all of the machines, but some have some quirks and are missing a few drivers when deployed. I would like to know if its possible to script something or set something up to tell the OS to automatically go to the internet and get the drivers?

thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

See if this tutorial will help (do step 1 and on step 6 chose Yes and it should get most drivers) Device Installation Settings

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, I should have mentioned, Automatic updates are disabled as software updates are managed through SCCM SUP.
