Driver Selection

The Driver Selection wizard panel lets you inject drivers into the WinPE image.

The following figure shows the Driver Selection wizard panel.

Most installations require a set of drivers. For example, you might need to inject VMware drivers, such as vmware-nic.inf, vmx_svga.inf and vmxnet.inf, in the WinPE boot image.

To provide the path names to the driver files to inject into the image:

  • To select an existing Driver.txt file that contains the path names to .inf driver files, click Browse next to the Open Driver.txt file field.
    The path names contained in the selected file appear in the large Driver Files panel in the middle of the window.

    Note

    To obtain the .inf driver files, you can download .exe driver files from OEM and install them at a temporary location.As a result, the .inf files are created.

  • To add additional drivers to the displayed list or to start building a list of drivers, click Add. In the Select Driver Files dialog, select the root folder that contains the drivers or subfolders with drivers. Then click OK. All drivers in the selected folder or subfolders appear in the large Driver Files panel in the middle of the window.

    Note

    The path to the Driver.txt file can contain spaces. However, the path names of the .inf driver files cannot contain spaces. Spaces are not supported.

    For a sample of the driver.txt, see Driver.txt.

  • To save a new Driver.txt file that contains all of the drivers shown in the Driver Files panel, click Save new Driver.txt file. Then do one of the following:
    • Type the path to a folder where you want to save this new Driver.txt file. Use NSH format and include the file name. For example:
      //myComputerHostname/myDriversFile/Driver.txt
    • Click Browse to select a folder in which you want to save this new Driver.txt file. Add the file name to the path in the edit box under Save new Driver.txt.
