K2000 - Winpe10 - Does it support Windows 7?
10/14/2016 3041 views
If I want to be able to deploy Windows 10 and 7 from the same K2000, do I just add the KBE Driver Pack for Windows 10 and recache or do I have to add multiple driver packs? Sorry, but I don't understand the KBE creation process very well. When I navigate to \\k2000\drivers, I see a bunch of folders (kbe_windows_x64, kbe_windows_x86, windows_7_x64....). None of the windows_* folders have anything in them. Only the kbe_windows_* folders do. If I navigate into kbe_windows_x64, I see "dell-winpe10-a01"...so that's my winPE 10 environment for 64-bit...I get that, but if I want to add support for Windows 7, do I just copy winPE 3 into the same directory? So I in the directory "\\k2000\drivers\kbe_windows_x64\" I would have 2 folders...1 for winPE10 and another folder for winPE3? Then I would recache and upload a new KBE?
Thanks for any info.

The WINPE10 Driver pack and Windows 10 ADK tool set is a valid configuration to deploy or capture images of Windows 7 OS.
Having the drivers only located in the kbe_windows_x64 or kbe_windows_x86 folders is the best way as when you are looking to see what drivers are going to be used just look into the architecture folder instead of having to look through all the folders. Just want the single WINPE10 Driver Pack to be installed, having the other WINPE versions usually causes driver conflicts which results in the KBE failing.
When testing the new KBE, if it fails with a could not connect to peinst or you see 1231 error this would mean to use the drvier feed and download the WIn10xXX of the model, then copy the network folder from //ikbox/drivers_postinstall into the //ikbox/drivers/kbe_windows_xXX/custom/[model] path (may need to create folders if custom and model folders do not exist). Recache the drivers and re-create the KBE as this will then add the network drivers for that model into the KBE resolving any 1231 error.
