I’ve been mucking around with MDT 2010 lately, which has made it pretty simple to create an unattended install routine for my Dell Latitude XT2 (hopefully more on that soon) and to inject drivers into the build; however in doing so I’ve found a nasty bug in the IDT 92HDxxx HD Audio drivers from Dell (version 188.8.131.5217, A09).

My old favourite Daemon Tools just hasn’t been working in Windows 7, so I’ve been on the look out for another tool for mounting ISOs. I haven’t really liked other tools like CloneDrive or PowerISO, but I’ve come across Psimo File Mount (via My Digital Life, I think) which so far has been working a treat.
