Copy Windows 2008 SOI drivers task

Deployment Solution for Dell Servers

This task type lets you copy drivers from the iDRAC to the RAM drive before you perform a scripted OS installation (SOI) of Windows 2008.

See Performing a scripted OS installation without PXE

You can use the Lifecycle Controller drivers to perform a 64-bit SOI. However, you must boot into the 64-bit environment before you copy the drivers or launch the SOI task. You also must use the Dell iDRAC Windows 2008 SOI Driver Copy sample task.

You can access the 64-bit task from the Manage > Jobs and Tasks > System Jobs and Tasks > Dell Server Deployment menu. This task also works in a 32-bit environment.

The Windows 2008 SOI Driver Copy task type works only for a 32-bit environment.You can access this task type from the Create New Job or Task page.
