In SCCM 2012, we're currently deploying device drivers during OSD via task seuqnces, using the "Auto Apply Drivers"-step. Our company uses workstations and laptops of several different makes and models. Therefore I'm thinking about changing the driver deployment to the approach described here.
- Remove step "auto apply drivers"
- replace w/ several "apply driver package"-steps, each containing a different driver package
- use conditions in the form of WMI queries to a) determine make and model if device and b) apply appropriate driver package.
Question: Is there any way to test driver deployment with virtual machines by simulating devices of different make and model in order to see if the right driver packages are applied? Or do I have to wait for the next shipment of new laptops to test my new configuration ?
