  1. hello, i have just tested your program and here is my comments : the old method works fine the new one (with the database) doesnt work. My objective is to make a network repository of all drivers. These are being installed during the first boot. My image is sypreped with latest network and mass storage drivers but i lose a lot of time reimage it each time an new driver is availlabe or updated. I have already tested driverforge and both programs have the same problem : used on local pc, evrything is fine and fast but when drivers are located on a network drive, perfomances are very bad. Your approach of creating a driver database with device id is great but doesnt seems to work in my case. my database consist of more than 24000 different id, when checking at them i have notice the following : * hardware_database.db : PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930,\c\I\xp\ich9smb.inf hardware.log : [09:55:01] - [DRIVER] Device => PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930&SUBSYS_02111028 Driver Path => NOT FOUND in DB but in the ich9smb.inf here what i have found %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930.DeviceDesc% = NO_DRV, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930 so i suppose the driver is not installed with your process because the id is not found. But the more surprising is this inf file is working when using the hardware wizard manually. i will be glad to help you improving this masterpiece of software so dont hesitate to ask if help is needed
  2. hi kickarse, first of all many thanks for your software. i have a question about the speed of drivers installation. but before, i tell you the story. i have a winxp image with a sysprep and a lot of scripts running after the first boot. Several times per year, i need to add drivers and make tests to be sure everything is okay so, drivers (driver pack and a lot of additional one) are stored in the local drive and i manage 2 image (one before sysprep and one once sysprep has run) my objective is to avoid this and centrally manage the drivers on a server so i only need updated network drivers in my image. I have made several test to check the speed of drivers installation and it is almost impossible to use network for drivers installation (too much time) when using a local drive all is okay. I have more than 25000 different id's in my drivers directory and the size in near 1Gb uncompressed (less than 200Gb compressed). I dont want to lose time unpacking drivers from the network (could be very long on old machine). I have made an autoit script mapping a network drive and launching driverforge (works very well using local drive but very slow when using network). I dont think this is a network issue because i have made test with 2 connected machine and its very long too) Do you have any idea of what is wrong ? instead of rescanning the entire hardware tree is there a whay to install only missing drivers ? so i'm complety voiceless, i will make additional tests and keep you informed of the result. You have made something very good and you can improve it to be a great software. thank you in advance for your valuable support. cheers
  3. sorry wrong forum - this one is part for driverforge. can an admin delete this plz thx hi kickarse, first of all many thanks for your software. i have a question about the speed of drivers installation. but before, i tell you the story. i have a winxp image with a sysprep and a lot of scripts running after the first boot.

  4. hi tommy this is not for a home machine. the image is to be deployed on hundred machines. as explained before i'm able to add MUI packs after windows initial install (before sysprep) but i want to know is there is an easy way to integrate those MUI with hfslip additional question : is there a way to intergrate WGA(kb892130) with hfslip --> unable to find the downloadble exe on ms website thank you for your answer
  5. hi gurus ! ! ! first of all, i'm wish to thank the community for all the valuable help we can found here. special thanks for this marvelous piece of code named "HFSLIP". so after congratulations here is my question. I want to make a multilanguage version of winxp 1) current recipe use a corporate winxp sp3 english apply patches use hfslip install the OS generated by hfslip add MUI (ie7 - .net 2.0 - Ts - xp) i have to manage english, french, italian, german and spanish 2) needed recipe i want to know if there is a way to add all those MUI during a hfslip process if so, where should i put the files (hfsvcpack_sw1, hfsvcpack_sw2) the objective is to automate as much as possible the process to create my corporate image of winxp ps : kb950759 doesnt integrate well in hfslip (winupdate want to install it) thank you in advance for your feedback/help have a great day
