Driver Import Issue

no comment

I’ve just run into an issue importing drivers for Windows 8.1 (on two Lenovo devices – Helix Gen2 and the ThinkPad Tablet 10) on SCCM 2012 R2 (recently upgraded from 2012 SP1 but this could be irrelevant).

The problem was that the primary site that I was trying to run the Import on was running Windows Server 2008 R2. When trying to import Windows 8.1 drivers, the following error would be displayed in the import wizard dialogue box and in the DriverCatalog.log:

The selected driver is not applicable to any supported platforms. Code 0×80070661

The problem appears to be due to driver signing and the method in which some of the newer drivers are signed. Windows Server 2008 R2 doesn’t recognise the signing method and rejects the drivers.

A KB article (KB3025419) was created to address this issue - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3025419

Which ultimately points to 2 other KB patches to install.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2921916

After installing these patches, and rebooting the server, all drivers now import successfully.
