  1. Edit. Sorry, my bad, misunderstood your question. Nothing useful to give you right now.
  2. Hi. While the smarter guys are still working / sleeping I hope I can push you to the right direction by giving best guesses. Edit 2. I assume that in SCCM you have in the DP's properties enabled PXE and that SCCM has thus also installed and configured WDS role on your server and that you have distributed the boot images with the checkbox "Deploy this boot image from the PXE service point" and that there actually are some boot files automatically created into SCCMSERVER\RemInst\SMSBoot\x86 and \x64 (Edit 3: fixed the folder name...) For source, as I can't find a Windows Noob tutorial right now, see for example this or this, or Ok then. I think that you need to configure your DHCP to tell this PXE client (or all PXE clients in a certain network) that the PXE server's IP is your SCCM2012/WDS-server's IP and that the boot files can be found in "SMSboot\x86\wdsnbp.com". But I don't know DHCP enough to tell you technically the steps that this requires. Edit 1: It has something to do with DHCP option 66 (boot server host name) & DHCP option 67 (boot file name). Cheers! -MPT-
  3. Hi. Edit 5. I have created the same thread at forums.lenovo.com as they may have more insight into this matter. Anyway, it seems that my ThinkCentre has forgotten who he is. I have a ThinkCentre M72e (3267-BZ5). I deployed Win7 ENT x64 and tried to install driver packages with conditions. I have googled quite a bit and most sites seem to say the same. "Lenovo has a little bit different way of storing model type, it can be found in Win32_ComputerSystemProduct.Version... But those conditions failed, none were matched. After I got the target computer up and running, I checked and the computer has the following property values in Win32_ComputerSystemProduct: Win32_ComputerSystemProduct.IdentifyingNumber="pb12xwn" Win32_ComputerSystemProduct.Name="3267-BZ5" Win32_ComputerSystemProduct.Version="Lenovo Computer" All other properties in Win32_ComputerSystemProduct are NULL Additonal info: For now I did not copy all the ThinkCentre drivers into my driver store but only those that were needed because Windows 7 media would not identify those devices. So some chipset drivers may be windows generic and not from the manufacturers. BUT after the OSD I have - installed Lenovo software and updated all drivers and rebooted - no change - updated BIOS also (chose NOT to manually update the model name - no change and the WMI query still returns the same result as above. I am a little lost at where to go next, as in my mind this information should be somewhere in the computer hardware? Cheers. -MPT-
