Hi Chaps,
Im sure this can be done but need some pointers, I think.

As it stands, I now 2 aspects of my multipass project, that use the DOS USB drivers successful to speed up ghost imaging however, the way I do it involves a "separate Super floppy" per USB driver.

For example X number of machines work well with DOS driver Y. for arguments sake USBASPI.SYS.
So these machines are started ghosting using a superfloppy (USBASPI.IMA) that fires up said driver in the config.sys file.

However on the other hand different machines that dont work with driver Y "do" work with driver Z. For arguments sake ASPIEHCI.SYS.
So these machines are started ghosting using a superfloppy (ASPIEHCI.IMA) that fires up said driver in the config.sys file.

And for the rest that transfer ok WITHOUT the need for a DOS driver are powered by a superfloppy called NOUSB.IMA. Say no more.

So as you can see, Im flopping about all other the shop (oh come on! :D ) and this can be a pain in terms of saving disk space and editing things 3 times over etc. When updating etc.

I have now added my UNIVERSAL GHOST IMAGE (thx shirin) to the Stick that again uses the same principle as above but also another bunch of super floppies.

I was thinking that perhaps I could have one super floppy to rule them all! Maybe have some kind of config.sys driven menu that would prompt to choose the best driver from the floppy that holds all two of the drivers!

If anyone has any sample files to start with that would be good, otherwise looking forward to some tips etc. Thanks!

You already have a very good example (or start point), only you seemingly refuse to use it :D (or if you prefer, to spend some time on how to write a multichoice autoexec.bat/config.sys and to experiment with DOS driver loaders/unloaders):

AFAIK, it isn't like if you re-post more or less the same question n times you will get more attention or ANY other answer but the same n ones:

and I doubt that anyone will do your homework for you. :D

You need/want "advanced" DOS features that you can get ONLY through learning "advanced" DOS capabilities.

You can take a look at the FreeDOS image of UBCD (not the last version, but shouldn't matter for the USB drivers part):
