Release Notes

#Update the OSD Module to the latest version
Install-Module OSD -Force

21.7.21 (2021 July 21)

  • Save-WebFile - Resolved issue where URL's with spaces would not download the content. This impacted Dell Driver Packs

  • OSDCloud - Resolved issue where some Retail ESD's did not contain 'Home Single Language' so an Index bias was implemented by counting the Indexes to determine if one was missing. This was confirmed in Windows 10 21H1 Retail de-de and impacted Education and Pro editions

21.7.20 (2021 July 20)

21.7.18 (2021 July 18) OSDCloud Any PC ...

... that has drivers in Microsoft Update Catalog

Save-SystemFirmwareUpdate (OSDCloud)

This is the function used to download the Firmware from Microsoft Update Catalog. This will be added as a Driver to the offline Windows Image and should installed during the next reboot if necessary. This is handled automatically (no parameter necessary). Its important to note that Firmware Updates from Microsoft may be 1 version behind (1-3 months) the latest available from the Manufacturer

Save-MsUpCatDriver (OSDCloud)

There are two different execution methods in OSDCloud. If a Driver Pack for Dell, HP, Lenovo, or Microsoft Surface is found, then Save-MsUpCatDriver will download and apply Drivers for the Network Adapters only. If no Driver Pack is found (non-Enterprise devices), then drivers for All Devices are downloaded and applied to the offline Windows Image

In my testing, this is not always perfect, but having 3 devices out of about a hundred isn't bad. Finally, the Drivers that were installed were not always the latest. Enabling drivers in Windows Update when you get Windows 10 or /11 installed should solve all of that

At this time, I have ZERO plans to pull BIOS / Firmware updates from the Vendors (Dell, HP, Lenovo) as this led to quite a bit of complication

Save-MsUpCatDriver (Testing)

In Windows, you can test Save-MsUpCatDriver to see how this works, just make sure to leave off the DestinationDirectory parameter so it won't actually perform the download. This took 20 seconds on my computer in my testing (and 1m40s with the download enabled)
