The selected driver is not applicable to any supported platforms


 

Ever have one of those days where you think you are going crazy? I had one today related to an experience trying to import some Dell drivers for the new E6320 and E6420 laptops. The most important of the drivers for my ConfigMgr OSD task sequence are NIC drivers. The version that I needed for WinPE was 11.8.81.0. But guess what? Every time I tried to import I got an error “The selected driver is not applicable to any supported platforms”. What?!?!?!

Apparently, if using Windows Server 2008 (not R2), you need to patch the OS for the import to work.

Per the KB:

Consider the following scenario:

  • On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, an application uses the SetupVerifyInfFile function to validate an.inf file.
  • The function uses the AltPlatformInfo parameter.
  • The version of the .inf file is newer than the version of the operating system.

In this scenario, the validation fails.
For example, assume that you install a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 site server. Then, assume that you try to import a Windows 7 driver into an Operating System Deployment (OSD) image. In this scenario, the driver import fails. At the same time, you receive the following error message:

Error: Failed to import the following drivers:
<Driver file> The selected driver is not applicable to any supported platforms.

Note SCCM 2007 uses the SetupVerifyInfFile function to validate the .inf file.
