RicaNeaga Posted March 25, 2012 Share Posted March 25, 2012 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.
