Which driver files/folders to integrate?

Recommended Posts

I've obtained all of my mainboard's drivers(see signature) from the following page: http://eu.msi.com/index.php?func=downloadd...mp;prod_no=1412

I'm trying to integrate the following drivers into a Windows Vista SP1 64-Bit installation disk, using vlite:

* Intel INF Drivers for 3/4/5 Chipsets

* Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

* (no intel VGA)

* Intel Gigabit Ethernet Drivers

but after unpacking the drivers, I am having difficulty in distinguishing which ones(folders) I need for my Vista x64 installation, these are all the selectable folders to integrate:

* Obviously I only need the 64 bit drivers but notice how there are two folders of each named 64 and x64, should I select both?

* For the Realtek HD driver, do I need both the x64 and WDM folders?

* For the LAN driver, should I select ALL the folders? (PRO100, PRO1000, PROXGB, IOATDMA folders). It's an Intel 82566-DC Gigabit integrated LAN, logic tells me I should use the 1000 folder but maybe I need 100 for backwards compatibility with regular ethernet networks?.

I can only answer the last question. Pro100 and Pro1000 are 2 different cards. Which do you have?

The WDM folder should be XP only.

A great way to determine which of those folders you need is to extract the drivers from the same system using a tool like Driver Magician Lite.

Then you just compare the extracted files with those of your driver packages.
