Guide For Compressed Drivers Unattended Install

Recommended Posts

@Bâshrat the Sneaky

You are right, but I modified my method for compressed drivers since, but didn't write about it here, so maybe you see the irony...

But it's good to see that my SetDevicePath.exe has its uses after all :D

well I preset my video settings (takes place @ 34min mark) using this

in winnsif;

QUOTE

[Display]

BitsPerPel=32

Xresolution=1024

YResolution=768

Vrefresh=70

and that doesn't happen and I get BSOD prior to app install.

I tried raid drivers (works with oempnp...) started install ok,

then BSOD. I tried one at a time, raid then video, BSOD, with either one.

nVidia signed drivers, also work from oempnp...

@serialzs:

I don't know anything specific, but you can test by yourself: As soon as the GUI-mode installation starts, press shift F10 and enter taskmgr. It will not work and give you an error message. Wait for a few seconds and try again, it will work eventually. So the environment is not fully operational at that point, but I cannot say in which way exactly.

BTW, I noticed you are using AutoIt v3, did you try v2? Because I am using v2, not a compiled script, but nevertheless v2 and it works in presetup.cmd.

@serialzs

I would like to know what does exactly drvz.exe.

If it's an autoit script, could you make the code public (turn back the compiled exe to script code) we can alter it to best fit our needs (change the default folder name for drivers).

@Bilou_Gateux

it exactly do is

search the CDROM with *.cab files or *.7z files... (%cdrom%\$OEM$\DRIVERZ) :)

then extract it to your SYSTEMDRIVE... (C:\DRIVERZ)

i really do it with Z for those who are using DRIVERS in there SYSTEMDRIVE...

it will not install if it OVERWRITE the EXISTING FILEs...

and with the help of pyron's SETDEVICEPATH.EXE... it reg. the folders in registry...

that's all... :thumbup

It should be normal and it means that Windows sees that directory during installation, ie the DevicePath variable is correctly set. I just searched around for it a bit and found one in every singe directory beneath my drivers path, never noticed before however.

But then again I don't know why your drivers are not installed. I have similar problems in vmware, in particular with the mouse driver. On a real world system all neccessary drivers get installed, so I don't care too much.

You CAN keep them without having trouble, but why would you? Just remove the folders of which you are a 100 percent sure you can remove them. (Like AGP95, etc.)

WINDOWS XP doesnt needed it and never use it... :huh:

just a quick ?, would this work on w2k? or does this method have any limitations...im unsure if w2k allows detachedprogram, but maybe someone else knows, then the ? would be is there anything in the files that make it only work for wxp?

will this not work if there is the oempnpdriverspath thing in winnt.sif?

and is it ok to have drivers for different things in one .7z file? eg. video drivers, sound drivers etc.

and one last thing: do the folder names matter inside the .7z file?

thanks

oempnpdriverspath¿ :o for what reason you have to use it¿
and is it ok to have drivers for different things in one .7z file? eg. video drivers, sound drivers etc.

u can do it but make sure that the files don't have same name and extension... :thumbup

and one last thing: do the folder names matter inside the .7z file?

if your driver have a folder it is good to use 7z compression... just include the folder in the compression and it will extract in the same folders...

hmm, just a thought. wasn't pyron's method capable on placing most commands since the center of his project was with the presetup.cmd file?

my presetup.cmd file contained this code:

%systemdrive%


REM Extracting drivers...
cd %systemdrive%\drivers

start /wait drivers.exe -y /q /r:n



cd %windir%\system32



REM Scanning for driverdirectories

%systemdrive%\SetDevicePath.exe %systemdrive%\drivers



REM Enable installation of unsigned drivers

start %systemdrive%\WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe



REM Workaround to work with XPSP2

cd %systemroot%\system32

if exist setup.exe ren setup.exe setupold.exe

if exist setupORG.exe ren setupORG.exe setup.exe

start /WAIT setup.exe -newsetup
