ThinInstaller not updating specific driver

2020-07-26, 22:46 PM

I've recently started using Thininstaller and Update retriever, so I am not very au-fait with it just yet. Haven't integrated into SCCM as yet, I'm just using them standalone while I get my head around everything and check each model that we have to confirm the drivers all install as required. I am struggling with some drivers not updating and I cannot work out why. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. One example is with the X270. I have the 20HM and 20K5 models. When I update the drivers on both, I always have one driver missing on the 20KE. Its the Lenovo PM driver. Now, when I check the repository XML file for the driver, it does cover both product codes and when I check the hardware ID, it matches both as well, but the 20K5 wont install it. Also, both X270's will not update the graphics driver from the basic MS driver that gets installed from W10. Again, I have checked the hardware ID and the XML and as far as I can see, it should work but it doesnt. If anyone can give me any advice? Both UR and TI are the latest revisions. TIA.

For 20K5, the Power Management driver is not tagged to that catalog.  This is our mistake.  We will fix it ASAP.

 

The video driver situation is a mess right now.  We always recommend putting the video driver in the image itself whenever possible.  To do what you are trying to do, it requires modifying the package.  See here for advice and let us know if you still have problems getting it to work:  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Enterprise-Client-Management/ThinInstaller-does-not-install-graphics-drivers-on-T580-Windows-10-20H1/m-p/5026528

Many thanks for the update. In my diagnostic processes, I did find that having a driver installed for the graphics, albeit a dated one, allowed the TI to install the latest one. I appreciate the updates though. Thanks.

@someotherguy I also have a X390 that TI doesnt install the BIOS. Product code 20Q1. Its in the repository but is ignored. I can update manually now though but thought Id mention it so that you can address this in due course. Thanks

Do you know what was the BIOS version on the X390 that couldn't be updated?
