Intel NUC and SCCM issues

We purchased a couple of the Intel NUC mini desktops (model NUC5i3RYK) for our custom Lync Room systems.

Deploying with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager...

Same with any new system... the Window PE boot image needed new drivers for the Ethernet adapter. (In our case the 64 bit driver - e1d64x64.inf)

Created a driver pack for the Intel NUC system, however the drivers were not getting installed into the image by the "Apply Device Drivers" task.

Decided to try the "Apply Driver Package" and picked the Intel NUC package option to see what would happen.

Now the task sequence fails with...
This task sequence cannot be run because a package referenced by the task sequence could not be found. For more information, please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.

Using F8 and cmtrace to open the \windows\temp\SMSTS.log file and found this error message...
Failed to resolve selected task sequence dependencies. Code(0x80040104)

Found this website and updated the distribution points so that the source version number would not be '1' and now the task sequence is working and drivers are installing.
