3 Workarounds can be found on the System Center blog by Frank Rojas

In my customer's case, he used workaround 2 and was pleased with the result.

Workaround 2 does not use the Apply Driver Package at all. Instead it uses the Download Package Content task to first download the Driver Package to a specified directory and then using more or less the same command line from Workaround 1, it installs the drivers. This workaround also resolves the problem by only having to initiate one registry load/unload during the DISM driver injection process. Since the Download Package Content task is only available with ConfigMgr Current Branch, this workaround cannot be used with older versions of ConfigMgr (ConfigMgr 2012 SP2/R2 SP1 or ConfigMgr 2007).
