You must follow certain guidelines when you capture hardware-specific software.
Follow these guidelines to successfully capture hardware-specific software, such as Dell or HP application and driver suite.
Some vendors provide a single OEM application suite that is compatible with many or most of their hardware models. Use this suite for the OEM layer capture.
If the vendor only provides an OEM suite that is relevant for a specific hardware model or model line, install the OEM software on the hardware model for which it is intended or on a compatible model.
Mirage provides the following ways to deliver OEM device drivers to target endpoints.
Through the driver library. For more information about how to deliver device drivers to specific hardware models in a rule-based manner, see Managing the Driver Library.
Through base or app layers. In this method, you either install or place all relevant device driver packages in the reference machine, in a path that is also defined in the Windows DevicePath registry value. You can also install the corresponding OEM applications in the same reference machine. You then capture a base or app layer from the reference machine. You can use this layer to deploy OEM applications and drivers to any endpoint of the matching hardware models.
