You need to download the DriverPacks BASE and run it and the rest will show itself.

I just started testing this instead of using driverpacks.net. Nice that I can use my own drivers now.

I'd like to know though why my nvidia forceware 169.04 (from tweakforce.com) wouldn't install properly. After all is up and running, i get a ! in device manager on the videocard, and the picture dont look so clear. Uninstalling the driver, and then reinstalling it manually fixes the issue.

Any idea whats the cause?

Also, I'm thinking of setting up an nforce chipset machine too, do nforce IDE drivers get installed?

Download all driverpack files, including the BASE file, into the same directory. Do not unpack any files. Next simply run the BASE file, which is an executable. That's all you need to do.

First, i would just like to say many thanks for the people involved in making this awesome driver installation method; you guys rock :thumbup

Anyway, i have a question which i would very much appreciate some help with, thanks...

I'm installing my drivers uncompressed and directly from CD, but now i have just noticed that all the driver files on my HDD is read-only marked...

This is then because i'm on Win2k, which in contrary to WinXP, dosen't automatically remove the read-only attributes when copying from CD to HDD...

So my question then, is if you guys think that it's allright to have all the driver files left as read-only on the HDD ?

I mean DLL's and SYS's and such i guess won't hurt, but as there are also CFG's and such, then i'm alittle unsure about if it's OK or not to just leave them as read-only ?

If it's not good to leave them as read-only, then i guess that i'll have to make a batchfile that runs 'attrib -h *' on all of those files from RunOnceEx, but i would rather just avoid having to do that, if you guys thinks it's OK ?

Thank's in advance.

CU, Martin.

I got a question, somebody can get me the code for a usb-stick with a letter is always U:\

The problem is i got a driverpack compressed in 1 files, called Drivers.7z, but the instalation is not work because, just work for a Cdsource, i got the win xp install from a usb-stick with a letter is U: all the time. Also the dir for the driverpack is in U:\$WIN_NT$.~LS\$OEM$\Drivers and for the winnt.sif is U:\$WIN_NT$.~LS\I386

If somebody can help me, please, And i think the solutions is change the code in the drivers.cmd file

This is the directory tree in my usb-stick

U:
---\$WIN_NT$.~BT
----------------------\system32
---\$WIN_NT$.~LS
----------------------\$OEM$
-------------------------------\Drivers\Drivers.7z
----------------------\I386

Sorry for my english :hello: :unsure: :blushing:

help, if anyone reads this - I have burned around 10 dvds trying to get this method to work. I am a newbie and this so tell me everything in plain english. The drivers will not install; I have it setup to do a clean format - do you see anything else wrong? Also do I need a copy of the winnt.sif and winnt.exe in the system32 folder?

Here is what my winnt.sif looks like and it is located under my the I386 folder which is located at the same folder as $OEMS$:

System32 ??? If you meant I386, then you just need to add WINNT.SIF to I386.

Here is what my winnt.sif looks like and it is located under my the I386 folder which is located at the same folder as $OEMS$:

Unless that was a typo, then there's your problem... In the root you should have a folder named $OEM$ and not $OEMS$...

If it was a typo, then check that you have your drivers in either '$OEM$\Drivers' or '$OEM$\Drivers.7z' and that each driver folder has atleast 1 inf file...

Thank you, that did the trick - now if I could get the display and the URL information to stay? any ideas on those? I tried to add the autoconfirm = 1 and it still did not take the display - it ask me to confirm the settings.

Thank you again for your help..

Try additionally adding 'ConfigureAtLogon=0'... I found several MSFN members stating that this should fix the display issue, but i don't know anything about if myself, though... The "URL information not staying" issue you're describing, i do not know what is about, sorry...

I have integrated all DriverPacks now into a Windows XP SP3 CD and noticed these scripts work fine with it. However integrating 800MB of drivers takes more time so I have updated and simplified the presetup.cmd script.

Winnt.sif
[Data]AutomaticUpdates = No
Autopartition = 0
MsDosInitiated = 0
UnattendedInstall = Yes

[Unattended]
CrashDumpSetting = 0
DUDisable = Yes
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
FileSystem = *
NoWaitAfterGUIMode = 1
NoWaitAfterTextMode = 1
OemPreinstall = No
OemSkipEula = Yes
OemSkipWelcome = 0
UnattendSwitch = No
UnattendMode = DefaultHide
WaitForReboot = No

[GuiUnattended]
DetachedProgram=".\system32\cmd.exe"
Arguments="/Q /C FOR /F %I IN (%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\$WINNT$.INF) DO (FOR %J IN (%I$OEM$) DO (IF EXIST %J (START /D%J nircmd.exe exec hide presetup.cmd)))"

presetup.cmd
@echo off
set param=%*
if not defined param (
	start nircmd.exe exec hide presetup.cmd install
	process.exe -s "setup.exe"
	goto :ticker
) else (
	setupcopyoeminf.exe "Drivers"
)
process.exe -k "sleep.exe"
process.exe -r "setup.exe"
exit

:ticker
sleep 50
process.exe -r "setup.exe"
process.exe -v | findstr /i ^"setupcopyoeminf^"
if not errorlevel 1 (
	sleep -m 2500
	process.exe -s "setup.exe"
	goto :ticker
)
goto :eof

UPDATE: Removed ticker script, so no need for nircmd.exe anymore. Script now depends on sleep.exe to wait. I have included nircmd.exe only for hiding the script now.

As I'm working on integrating the DriverPacks I'm encountering problems using the DPFinisher program as it assumes all drivers are copied to the hdd. Also the program does run some tasks similar as setupcopyoeminf but these are not documented anywhere. Writing a custom application to manually process the DriverPacks without the bloat from the DPFinisher program should make things more simply.

I've recently changed to installing my apps from a second data-drive/partition, instead of the %cdrom% based method, since that's even more faster, but then i thought to myself, why not also doing the same with the drivers, i.e. having the drivers stored on a second data-drive/partition, and then letting Windows install them from there, and so i changed the method described in this thread(uncompressed drivers from CD), with the following changes:

I placed the $OEM$ folder on my second data-drive/partition, and renamed it to Drivers, and then changed the 'Arguments' section in WINNT.SIF to the following:
[GuiUnattended]
	DetachedProgram=".\system32\cmd.exe"
	Arguments="/Q /C start /min /Dxxxxx NirCmd.exe exec hide Drivers.cmd"
(Where xxxxx is the path for the Drivers folder)

Just wanted to post this, in case someone would find it interesting... :)

Has anyone successfully used this for XP x64 Edition install? (no driverpacks exist for xp64, so if this method applies, it can work wonders)..

Hello,
This is quite an informative thread but is there any method by which I can keep a backup file for my drivers in the system memory itself?

Hello guys i ve a little confusion. Can you guys clear?
To accomplish this method Drivers from CD: Simple Method. I ve to place this entry in winnt.sif in my GuiUnattended section:


DetachedProgram=".\system32\cmd.exe"
Arguments="/Q /C FOR /F %I IN (%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\$WINNT$.INF) DO (FOR %J IN (%I$OEM$) DO (IF EXIST %J (start /min /D%J Drivers.cmd)))"

And then i ve 2 copy the six files from the zip in $OEM$ folder. Then i ve to create a subfolder in $OEM$ with the name drivers. The confusion is that CAN I PLACE MY DRIVERS IN SUBFOLDERS IN DRIVERS FOLDERS like Drivers\chipset\1, Drivers\chipset\2, Drivers\chipset\2 .

Second confusion is can i place my Drivers folder in the root of Unattended cd rom or not?

Yes, setupcopyoeminf.exe automaticly processes all subdirectories. I'm still working on rewriting the DriverPack Finisher program to get it to work using this method. I have also been experimenting with USB media with good results.

What about searching?

http://www.msfn.org/...nclude-drivers/

Several links to tried-and-true methods.

The method for Win7 is (nearly) the same as XP.

http://www.msfn.org/...re/#entry892782

For drivers needed during PE phase:

http://www.msfn.org/...re/#entry913017

I added USB3 drivers for an add-in card using the above for a MoBo that the USB2 ports failed on and had no PS2 ports.
