    Why don't you just pre-integrate the drivers?

    I do that also. But some people don't know how to mount install.wims or such.

    Those people should not involve themselves in windows servicing, and surely not with server OS on/as desktop, shouldn't they?

    Another question, why do you integrate them from the other install and not directly /online?

    For me, I build a custom ISO with all drivers in it. For other people I do not, but I test the ISO on my own machine so that is why I integrate the drivers separately. Like when I convert it to a WorkStation.

    I misunderstood. I integrate them from another install because Server is notorious for not accepting drivers when online.

    So, you're saying server dism doesn't work the same as client dism? What error messages do you get?

    Look, I don't bust my butt over server. I don't even use it. Integrating drivers into the install.wim or offline somehow before final reboot and setup is easiest so I stick with that. I also rip out IE 11 and integrate Edgium to the install.wim so I don't have to mess with IE11 and all it's weird messages about things you can't do in Server. I am currently using four monitors with a Startech HDMI to USB3 adapter, and from previous experience I need to integrate that offline somehow to get it to work. All I know is what I do works perfectly, so I keep doing it.

    p.s. I also remove Defender from the install.wim so I don't have to worry about some "special" programs I have.

    Conclusion, just posting the same bs as you did when you were first here.

    There is an entire thread devoted to modifying installations with a toolkit by MSMG; I don't see how this is any different.
