ThinkVantage Update Retriever Fails when trying to Export Drivers

2011-11-17, 16:14 PM
Hello, I am working on setting up MDT as a replacement for Ghost, I found the ThinkVantage Update Retriever and was happy to see I could download drivers easily. I was even impressed to see that I could extract them all at once rather then one by one. The problem is I try to extract the driver (in the case for the L520) and they all fail with "Failed: Extraction error". I would love to use this option since I need to set driver repositories for 10 or so models (and growing) and doing them all by hand would be - time consuming. If there is anything needed please let me know. PoisonStorm

Where are you specifying the folder to extract to?

 

Are you selecting all L520 updates?

 

When using MDT with Update Retriever, I would suggest only extracting ethernet and chipset packages and importing those into your task sequence.  For everything else, I would use Thin Installer to install just the appropriate packages pulled from your Update Retriever repository.  As mentioned in a previous post the TVT Admin Tools page has the System Update Deployment Guide v4 which describes how to use Thin Installer.  There is also a paper that describes integrating with MDT here:
