I have to admit I am a little out of my depth here.  I am trying to do a universal restore (to a computer with different hardware) on a Dell laptop using Acronis True image.  Acronis needs the driver information  to be in inf. sys. or oem formats. I have downloaded the complete set for the model in question as exe. files from the Dell website and am trying to extract them with Universal Extractor to a set of folders then tell Acronis were to look for them.  All of the exe. format files extract Ok except the BIOS drivers.  When I attemt to extract them I get the following message from Universal Extractor  " F:\Dell laptop drivers\E6330A14.exe cannot be extracted.  Filetype returned was: Microsoft Visual C++ v6.0 DLL [Overlay]*  ".  Can anyone tell me what the problem is (in terms I might be able to understand) and if there is anyway to get around it.

BIOS drivers? :w00t:

Can you post a link to the exact page where you got them and/or post the exact model for what they are meant?

It is this:

It is NOT a driver. It is a BIOS update that can be applied from Windows.

It is also not an archive.
