Microsoft have provided us with a method to create an SCCM driver package for the new Surface Laptop.
- Visit the Surface Laptop driver page and download the package (currently version 1 – SurfaceLaptop_Win10_15063_1703008_0.msi)
- Create a destination folder to hold the extracted files – NOTE!!! You must not put the file you downloaded in step 1 into this folder.
- To extract the drivers from a file SurfaceLaptop_Win10_15063_1703008_0.msi saved to a folder C:\Downloads to a folder C:\SurfaceLaptopDrivers, use the following command:
- msiexec /a C:\Downloads\SurfaceLaptop_Win10_15063_1703008_0.msi targetdir=C:\SurfaceLaptopDrivers /qf
- This will create a C:\SurfaceLaptopDrivers\SurfacePlatformInstaller folder containing the extracted drivers and firmwares.
- Use C:\SurfaceLaptopDrivers\SurfacePlatformInstaller\Drivers as the source folder for your SCCM driver package.
Mark Davidson is, according to his Twitter tagline, an “Internet sales & marketing professional. I write a lot of things to amuse myself and others. On occasion, I even have deep thoughts.”
It appears as if all those “deep thoughts” may not actually have eminated from his own mind, but from three ghost-tweeters employed by Mark. Unfortunately, one of those writers claims to have been sacked by Mark…unfortunate as Mark also forgot to change his Twitter password.
I’ve finally decided to resurrect my blog and link it to twitter. I’m using WordPress to blog, and it will post to twitter also.
Hopefully it will interest someone 🙂
Brilliant! Technology at it’s best.
