Aaron Posted July 31, 2003 Share Posted July 31, 2003 Remember, I don't have an nVIDIA card on any of my systems. But there are two ways of getting them installed:Method 1Extract your drivers using an extractor such as WinRAR.The contents of your directory should look like this:Now copy them all to C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\Drivers\Nvidia4403 (or whatever build of drivers you're using)In winnt.sif use the following under [unattended]:DriverSigningPolicy=IgnoreOemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\Nvidia4403\"If that doesn't work, try Method 2Method 2When you extracted them earlier you will have probably noticed setup.exe is an Installshield packaged file. Either from creating a shortcut to setup.exe with a switch, or from command prompt, use this:Setup.exe -R1. The normal setup screens will appear, asking you questions as you go along such as destination directory, etc. It's CRUCIAL that you do not choose the "Restart the computer now" option. If you do, you will terminate your batch when you run an unattended installation.2. After installation has completed, go to your C:\Windows (or C:\WINNT) directory and take out the setup.iss file. Put this setup.iss file in the same directory where your driver files reside (overwrite when prompted)If you placed the extracted drivers and setup.iss into C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\Applications\Nvidia\driver\ then use this batch:ECHO.ECHO Installing nVIDIA Drivers 44.03ECHO Please wait...start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\Nvidia\driver\Setup.exe -s -f1"%systemdrive%\install\Applications\Nvidia\driver\setup.iss"If you are using unsigned drivers, you may benefit from this registry tweak to set the driver signing policy from Prompt to Ignore to ensure an uninterrupted driver installation. You should add this to the registry BEFORE installing the drivers in your batch:Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Driver Signing]"Policy"=hex:00Please let me know which method works best for you, so I can add one of these on the site.
