ThinkPad Notebook computers and Tablets do not install all Lenovo drivers when deployed with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT)



After a successful MDT deploy of Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 8 to a Lenovo ThinkPad computer or Tablet, there may be Yellow Bangs displayed in Device Manager or some hardware devices fail to function as expected.


Affected Configurations

The above symptom is associated with, but not limited to, the following systems:

  • ThinkPad

Affected systems:

  • ThinkPad Tablets
  • ThinkPad notebook computers


System is configured with:

Operating System:

  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • Microsoft Windows 8



Once the SCCM Driver Pack has been downloaded, extracted, and added to MDT through the Out-of-Box drivers import operation, a Selection Profile must be created.  In the Task Sequence for the ThinkPad Tablet or notebook computer, the Selection Profile must be changed to the "Install all drivers from the selection profile" option.  If the MDT default option of “Install” only matching drivers from the selection profile is used, then the PnP enumeration run by MDT will incorrectly detect hardware devices will fail to install the appropriate device drivers.
