Identify Vista drivers


Recommended Posts

After recently slipstreaming some Vista drivers into my install have found many will install in a live system without too much trouble.

Is there any way of identifying problem drivers before I build my test UA install.

I don't want to install these by trial & error & not know which driver caused the install to halt. This is the case in Vista as install error screen does not show specific unsigned or qualifying driver? :blink:

Hello MC!

If setups does stop / fail you should have entries in the logs - setupact.log and setuperr.log in %Windir%\Panther\UnattendGC. If setup has not finished you would need any system on Media - like Bart PE or simple WinPE 2.0 to get these files from your hd.

Hello MC!

Well it's not that easy to find such an error. I would first list all Device IDs on your system and than search for this device IDs inside setupact.log. There is a tool comming with BDD 2007 which is called Microsoft.BDD.PnpEnum.exe listing all device IDs on a system.

Martin
