SCCM 2012 Migration: Copying Boot Image Drivers

When migrating from an older SCCM 2007 environment to SCCM 2012, one of the things that doesn’t carry over are your boot images and the drivers that go along with them. During a recent migration from SCCM 2007 to 2012 R2, I found myself in a position just like this. I created new WinPE 5.0 Boot Images however I still had the need to support Windows XP and Server 2003 for just a little longer so I needed to create WinPE 3.1 boot images to support those aging operating systems.

Since I wasn’t able to easily migrate this information over from the old environment using the built-in migration tool, I took to PowerShell to make my own.

Here the gist of the script:

  1. Connect to your old SCCM 2007 Site Server and get all the drivers associated with each boot image you want to reference.
  2. Loop thru all the drivers associated with that boot image and copy the driver source to a new source directory for your new boot images in SCCM 2012 (I use a separate file share for this so I don’t accidentally overwrite something).

NOTE: I’m automatically naming the destination driver folder based on the Driver Name (excluding special characters) and Version. I’ll let DISM sort out everything else later when adding drivers to the WIM.

Here’s the script:

	[Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Root Directory for Drivers to be copied too.",ValueFromPipeline=$True,ValueFromPipelinebyPropertyName=$True)]

	[Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Your SCCM Site Server.",ValueFromPipeline=$True,ValueFromPipelinebyPropertyName=$True)]

	[Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Your SCCM Site Code.",ValueFromPipeline=$True,ValueFromPipelinebyPropertyName=$True)]

	[Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Boot Image Package ID.",ValueFromPipeline=$True,ValueFromPipelinebyPropertyName=$True)]

$BootImage = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $SCCMServer -Namespace "Root\SMS\Site_$SCCMSiteCode" -Class "SMS_BootImagePackage" -Filter "PackageID='$PackageID'"
$BootImageDrivers = $([WMI]$BootImage.__PATH).ReferencedDrivers

foreach($Driver in $BootImageDrivers){
    $SourcePath = $Driver.SourcePath
    $DriverID = $Driver.ID

    # Get SMS_Driver Detailed Information
    $SMS_Driver = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $SCCMServer -Namespace "Root\SMS\Site_$SCCMSiteCode" -Class "SMS_Driver" -Filter "CI_ID='$DriverID'"
    $DriverVersion = $SMS_Driver.DriverVersion
    $DriverName = [System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex]::Replace($($SMS_Driver.LocalizedDisplayName),"[^1-9a-zA-Z_]","_")

    # Create New Driver folder
    $DriverDestinationFolder = New-Item -Path "$DriverDestinationRoot\$DriverName`_$DriverVersion" -ItemType Directory

    Copy-Item -Path $SourcePath -Destination $DriverDestinationFolder -Recurse -Force -Verbose
