DriverPack is an optional Storage Container in your OSDCloud Storage Account (tagged) that is used for mirroring vendor Driver Packs. Accounts must have the Storage Blob Data Reader role for this Storage Container to download the Driver Packs

It is recommended that you separate Device Manufacturers to help filter the content. This is not a requirement, but this may be added at a later date without warning. You create these paths during the upload of a Driver Pack

The contents of the dell folder contain Dell Driver Packs that are simply copied without any conversion. This purpose of mirroring the Dell Driver Packs is because downloading content from Dell's site may run slow on occasion, and this allows my deployments to run faster

For Lenovo, I opt to convert the EXE to a ZIP or CAB file and Upload the new file in the Azure Container. This is recommended to allow the Lenovo (HP and Surface) drivers to install in WinPE instead of the Specialize Phase

Obtaining Driver Packs

You can easily download the DriverPacks that OSDCloud uses to a USB Drive using the following

Update-OSDCloudUSB -DriverPack *

You can use this function to download the Driver Packs you need from any of the Device Manufacturers that are supported by OSDCloud

You can then Upload them to the DriverPack Storage Container, or convert the EXE files to CAB or ZIP before uploading

Remember to keep the same BaseName as the original DriverPack as this is what is matched in Azure Storage. The Extension can be ZIP, CAB, MSI, or EXE


During OSDCloud Azure deployment, if a Driver Pack BaseName is matched in the DriverPack Storage Container, it will be downloaded from Azure instead of the Device Manufacturer's site
