Add drivers to USB images

Add drivers to USB images

When you deploy an image from a USB device and the device does not connect and mount to the appliance drivers_postinstall share directory, you can manually copy the drivers to the USB device by importing the drivers to the appliance, and creating a mid-level post-installation task to add the drivers.

For information on adding drivers to a USB image deployment, see https://support.quest.com/kb/SOL111365, then log in to the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance Administrator Console.

On the left navigation pane, click Settings to expand the section, then click Package Management, and click Import KACE SDA Packages.

6.
Under Installation Plan, move the task that you created to add the drivers from the Available Mid-Level Tasks column to the Run Mid-Level Tasks column.
Adding the appliance IP address to the Internet Options Trusted Sites section (on the target device with the image that you want to capture to a USB device) ensures that the post-installation tasks run successfully after the device reboots in to the OS.
