Online driver Installer can be run during windows installation process

Recommended Posts

I'm talking about the new online drivers installer found in 1.4.0, with the features described by ricktendo here.

Why would anyone need it? What are the advantages over integrating the drivers with DISM?

1. This would make an AIO driver + windows 7 ISO truly possible, making the probability of conflicts even lower (the example of the AMD PCIE filter chipset driver installing on Intel-based systems comes to mind);

2. On the system only the needed drivers are installed and copied to drive C:, so a balast content with other drivers will be avoided;

3. Useful for a novice user, that doesn't have to hand-pick the needed drivers, but can ''integrate'' hundreds of them without any other worry.

After months of work (not continuous work, of course), I'm finalizing a pack of ONLY-windows-7 drivers, based on the driverpacks - heavily updated and more organised. And with such a powerful tool, the usefulness of such a pack will be even greater - people will not have to hand-pick their drivers and just integrate all the folder. Such a behaviour is unfortunately also common now with W7T users for integrating the current driverpacks, and this is not a very good idea.

So I don't know if this is doable, and to be more precise if this utility can be run before the second phase of windows installation starts. It has to because that's when the windows installation process starts to look for the (microsoft integrated) drivers needed. And this is just exaclty what the great driverpacks integrating tool can do ONLY for windows xp.

I also hope ricktendo and Kelsenellenelvian will comment on this one. :)

Simply answer really, someone requested it so i added it. As rick said it lets you remove outdated drivers also.

Problem is i don't know the difference between Windows 7 and Windows Vista drivers, surely there's something different in the inf file?

Legolash, I don't understand what you're saying. I'm not requesting what ricktendo already has requested, I'm requesting that somehow through W7T, the Online driver installer to be integrated into an offline image (alongside maybe a user-generated driver pack / folder), and run before the second phase of windows installation starts.

About the second question, it depends - sometimes there is a mention in the .inf (like a NTamd64 6.1 for windows x64 drivers, or a NTx86 6.1 for 7 x86, or even a clear mention in the beginning - windows 7 driver), sometimes it isn't and you have to manually download the individual drivers from the producer's support site (like I already did for many).

But this isn't the issue since I'll make public this pack very soon (I'm now trying to set up a ftp-like solution, and if I can't, I'm going for the usual mediafire option). The problem is how this tool can be run before the second phase of windows installation starts. And this is where I hope ricktendo / Kelsenellenelvian will help a little. Or maybe even someone from driverpacks, since a similar solution is implemented in their driver installer tool for windows xp (DriverPacks BASE).

Logistically it is near impossible.

The machine would have to be able to connect to the net.

Win7 wouldn't allow this untill the net group is setup. (Home\public)

Hell net drivers for MOST devices wouldn't be setup.

I won't interfere anymore with this discussion, since I don't know how to implement my request, but once again I remind you that there is a similar working solution for XP only, that does exactly this (the app runs before the second phase of windows xp install process) - Driverpacks BASE.

If the only solution is to run it at first logon, with the other switchless installers, then it's ok. I would have preffered it to give that drivers to the windows installation process during the second phase, but better this then nothing. :)

Again, Online Drivers does not work with wim images, it works on the currently installed OS, there isn't a second phase if Windows is already installed. It will probably not benefit the installation at all apart from slow it down.

Online Driver Installer does not even use dism, it uses pnptuil :)

I understand that. I was asking you to make (smth like) a silent installer, that runs this online drivers app automatically (for ex.) at first logon (as the rest of the silent installers, like ricktendo's .net4), and installs only the needed drivers from a batch folder of hundreds of drivers.

I already mentioned the advantages in the first post, as an alternative to the DISM way of installing drivers.

Please don't be mad because I insist on this feature - I really consider it CLEARLY SUPERIOR to DISM integrating of drivers especially for novice users. Hope you'll consider solving my request at some time in the future :)

What i can do is, if W7TRunOnce detects a "Drivers" folder on any partition/dvd/usb root it will use pnputil to install all the inf files?

Great! I have four suggestions:

1. The name of that folder maybe shouldn't be so common - a Drivers folder is also in windows directory; a ''W7TDrivers'' folder name (that a user can copy to the usb root, or make another ISO and include it) I think will be more appropriate;

2. An option in the ISO Maker that isn't checked by default, to also add/copy the ''W7TDrivers'' folder to the root of the iso;

3. Make the the implicit and only option that pnptuil only installs the needed (found on the system) drivers; if advanced users, that aren't interested in saving HDD/SSD space and for other reasones, want to have an AIO disk, with all the drivers on the planet integrated, then DISM can already do that for them. :)

4. An option to also delete all the not-present-on-the-machine / not-needed-drivers Microsoft drivers (if it is doable), to further save HDD/SSD space; but I don't know if this will have the potential for potential failures (bluescreens etc) afterwards... in case other hardware is added to the system. For non-important drivers (chipset, mass storage, usb), such a risk I think will be very close to 0.

LE: and a fifth suggestion - please recheck Mr. ricktendo's post from this thread.... maybe will help :)

@RicaNeaga, have you had a chance to check out the SAD2 script I mentioned earlier?

One way to handle this would be to only integrate the most urgent drivers then use mr_smartepants' SAD2 script - http://forum.driverp...pic.php?id=5336 to install the rest of the required drivers.

Since you're now talking about adding the drivers at first logon, I was wondering how you thought the script's actions compared with what you were wanting to accomplish?

Cheers and Regards

That script is driverpacks-folder tyed. It's like saing ''Hey, Apple has an alternative to Flash''. It's just my take on this, my opinion. :)

And I really don't like the current way driverpacks for windows 7 looks like. That's why I ''wasted'' so much time updating it / making it windows 7 - only / adding drivers to it... :)

I think the SAD2 solution would be the best solution and easy to implement with setupcomplete.cmd

All you have to do is to copy the DPs into the image and setup the script to run at first logon. A window with the progress would be handy here.

~ 800 MB of drivers will fit along with the setup files on a DVD5 eventualy, filtering out Chipset and MassStorage that will be integrated into the image

I want this feature implemented if possible.

What i can do is, if W7TRunOnce detects a "Drivers" folder on any partition/dvd/usb root it will use pnputil to install all the inf files?

I really like where this discussion is going. But to be honest, I don't think either DISM or pnputil will give you the desired result.

See, both are great for removing drivers from either the offline or online OS (respectively), but both will add ALL drivers to the OS whether they're needed or not.

Quote taken from here:http://technet.micro...v=ws.10%29.aspx

Drivers that are located in the path specified by DriverPaths are copied to the driver store ...

So this continues the problem of driverstore bloat. What I use in my SAD2 script is the Microsoft tool dpinst.exe. There are two versions (incompatible with each other) for 32 & 64 bit OS.

Where dpinst excels is that it only installs drivers for the hardware that is present during execution.

About 95% of my script deals with OS detection, path resolution, and driverpack extraction.

The "meat & potatoes" line that gets the drivers loaded is right here:

Start "MicroSoft Driver Installer Tool Running" /wait /separate /realtime /min CMD /C DPInst.exe /c /s

But in order for this to work, dpinst needs to be copied to the root of the folder containing all the drivers.

The line I was experimenting with for pnputil usage was this:

:: pnputil -a -i %SystemDrive%\D\*\*.inf

But again, this loads ALL the detected drivers into the driverstore.

RickNeaga is right though, my script is hard-coded to a specific folder structure. I am working on adding more code to allow for a more flexible folder structure though.

Here's my entire script:

Welcome MR_Smartepants :) Which would you recommend pnputil or DrvInst?

I was thinking that if W7TRunOnce found a driver folder it could install all the drivers, but since you said drvinst only install those that are needed then im tempted to use drivinst :)

Well really it depends on what the user wants to do.

DISM is the only one for offline images.

pnputil and dpinst are both for online (running) images but have different functions.

pnputil can be used to both add and remove drivers from the online driverstore (whether they're needed or not).

dpinst is used only to add drivers for hardware currently connected to the PC. (not efficient for external devices like printers etc. that need to be powered on)

dpinst can't be used to remove drivers though.

Ideally all three would be implemented for each of their unique strengths. I see W7T as a toolbox, you wouldn't want to be missing a screwdriver and have to resort to using a hammer. ;)

The user could indicate what folder they want the drivers forced (pnputil) and also a much larger folder to use if the system needs it (dpinst).
