Update retriever out of sync - drivers missing

Hi all

We are an enterprise and are deploying T420 (4236-65U). We use Lenovo's Update Retriever to pull all the drivers for all the lenovo models we have (T400,410,420,520,X200,201,220 etc). I have all the drivers for T420 in a folder and this as part of my task sequence this folder is copied locally and Thininstaller runs to install all drivers during the imaging process.

 

Even though i have all the required drivers and thininstall works fine, display driver is missing from the image. This is because I don't see this particular driver from Update Retriever. If I manually install the Nvidia optimus driver after imaging, or let windows update install Intel(R) HD Graphics Family driver, the resolution is back to normal. I am assuming the backend server for Update retriever is out of sync. Can someone from lenovo please suggest what to do in this case ?

 

When I call the support team, they have no clue what Update Retriever is. Please help

 

Thanks all

I'll look into the status of that package.  And if UR does not have access to it I'll see if there is another way to get it into your process.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

AAnd here is the command to install the drives via Thininstall:
ThinInstaller.exe /CM -search A -action INSTALL -noicon -includerebootpackages 1,2,3,4 -repository C:\lenovo_updates
