SCCM 2016 – Import Drivers

Drivers needs to be imported into SCCM for installing the Operating system properly.

At least Network Drivers needs to be imported and injected into Boot images. SCCM makes it easy to inject the drivers in Boot images, where as it was semi manual process if you are using WDS and MDT only.

To Import drivers in SCCM, Open Configuration Manager Console

Go to Software Library > Operating Systems > Drivers

Right Click on Drivers and Click Import Drivers

Specify the Network location to import drivers. SCCM will automatically search for driver recursively.

Click Next to Continue

Click Next to Continue

If you require, you can directly inject the drivers into boot images.

If you are only importing the network or storage drivers, then you should include those for boot images. But you can importing whole other set of drivers as well, then best to leave this blank. Because it will import all these drivers into boot images which wont be necessary at all.

Click Next to Continue
