Join Maurice Daly and Mikael Nystrom in a session with Windows driver focus. Love them or hate them, drivers are a fundamental component to the Windows OS and management is essential for the health of the machine. Let's face it, NOBODY likes a BSOD mid-way through working on their Excel spreadsheet or machines running at a crawl with bad storage drivers. So, let’s talk about drivers, the selection process (known as ranking) within the Windows OS, strategy for keeping driver package sizes down, driver packages or legacy packages, family packages, UWP drivers (Yes, they are a "thing"), in-place upgrades and for old time sake "Apply All Drivers" (yes you will be asked to leave the room). You will learn about both client and server drivers, as well as choosing the correct method of deploying, upgrading, maintaining and troubleshoot drivers

What you will learn:
  • Learn how to automate driver installation
  • Get real world experience from consultants working with global customers
  • Learn about the Windows driver ranking process
