How to install drivers post install?

Our organization switched over to using SCCM to deploy image a while ago but often there are missing drivers or updates that they are slow to incorporate into their task sequence so I have been trying to find a way to install these missing items using MDT but I am running into an issue trying to install drivers, post install of the OS. I have worked with MDT before the switch to SCCM but I cant seem to figure this out.

I want to setup a custom task sequence that can be run from the desktop using \\server\deploymentshare\scripts\litetouch.vbs. I have done this before with applications but its failing trying to install (inject) drivers. I have tried using the Inject drivers step typically using in a full deployment task sequence "Post Install" phase but I am getting the error "Unhandled error returned by ZTIdrivers: Type mismatch (13)". If I try to use just the "Inject Drivers" step from the Add > General menu and setup a selection profile i still get the same error.

I have not been able to find out much about this error. Any help is appreciated. Maybe there is another method to install drivers in this manner since there is not OS WIM to inject drivers into.

Hi,

Thanks for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

May we know what drivers you are trying to install? Please help check the bdd.log, smsts.log and setupact.log to see if there is any useful information.

1,Type mismatch error generally means that something isn't quite right in your drivers.xml file. Maybe the drivers.xml file could be corrupt. In which case you may want to try deleting and reimporting those drivers.

2,In SCCM, we could inject the software updates in your Operating System images. And use the Apply Driver Package task sequence step to setup the your drivers.
