    Acronis Universal Deploy uses three sources for drivers:

    • Mass storage device driver specified by the user;
    • Driver repository - a folder or folders on a network share or removable media (the program will look in subfolders, if necessary);

    The program will find the most suitable drivers of all available drivers and install them into the deployed system. However, the driver defined by the user, will have the priority. It will be installed, with appropriate warnings, even if the program finds a better driver.

  6. Review the summary and click Save to create the deployment template:
