OS deployment fails due to missing drivers

When deploying Microsoft Windows 2012 r1 to a server, the deployment might fail if drivers are missing from the image.

In this case, you might see the following error message:
Windows installation cannot continue
because a required driver could not be installed.
This issue can occur when the operating-system image does not contain drivers to support all of the adapters that are installed in the managed server. For example, this issue can occur if you attempt to deploy Microsoft Windows 2012 r1 to a server and that server has the following adapters installed:
  • ServeRAID M1215 SAS/SATA adapter

To resolve the issue, deploy Microsoft Windows 2012 r2.
