Add support for Drivers Update Classification (as we had in CM 2007)
to update Surface Hardware with latest Firmware and Drivers we need Drivers category in configmgr 2012 and later as we had it in CM 2007.
That would be much easier than deploying an msi file.
Now that Surface Drivers have been shoehorned into CM (yes I know its pre-release), we still need a way to filter for them. They technically have the Drivers classification, but that classification still does not exist in CM, so we cannot add criteria to selectively search for them.

This idea is a duplicate of https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/15594528-microsoft-surface-firmware. Can we get them merged? Thanks!
This can be solved with SCUP. (https://supportingpcs.wordpress.com/2015/01/20/updating-surface-pro-3-firmware-with-sccm-and-scup/) give you some advice.

This may be more of a Surface or WSUS issue - however it would be nice to have Surface Firmware updates available through WSUS and Configuration Manager console instead of only through Windows Update. Users will not go out to manually install these updates from Windows Update and the Surface updates manual download page is usually not up to date with the latest available firmware (https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/performance-and-maintenance/install-software-updates-for-surface?os=windows-10&=undefined#surfacepro3W10)
