I usually boot my win7 from usb on many ps's for repair,recovery,virus scan etc... In these cases I do not want
to Wait until the System finish drivers installation... (Sometimes it takes 5< minutes)


The system itself boots very fast and it's enough for me .... I do not need the most drivers.

I want to go to Device Manager manually and update only what I need (network etc...)

It's possible?

If you find a solution, I'd appreciate if you could write a small tutorial explaining how to do this.

It's hard to believe 'loading drivers' is the issue, even on slower machines, my Win7 (x86/64) boots very fast to usable desktop from HDD or USB.

What are reasons you're having to "Wait until the System finish drivers installation"? With a healthy startup you shouldn't have to wait at all; what's probably happening is a bunch of crap stuff is loading in the background that doesn't need to be. Programs you install tend to autorun themselves, check for updates etc. This is well known issue and requires a bit of house cleaning on users part to disable or delete these unwanted startups. Also, some anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee etc.) are worse than viruses at bogging down your system.

You can try a 'clean boot' using msconfig utility to see if this is the case, full instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

how to do this? Can you be more specific?

i know about "policy..." but for faster boot&run i use "windows 7 starter" instead of "ultimat"
the policy fether not exsist in win7 starter... am i wrong??

It's hard to believe 'loading drivers' is the issue, even on slower machines, my Win7 (x86/64) boots very fast to usable desktop from HDD or USB.


like im say befor, my desktop boot very fast too, but then start drivers installation prosass that make the sySTEM stake... (Especially when it's a flash drive...)
i know all about cleening startup, antiVIRUS, tweking for speed,etc...
Usually i stop the prosess manualy, but iT'S start few times again so i ask u for better Solution.

4 the 1st part of ur answer..is simple..but i need u 2 tell me exactly why u boot with windows from usb?4 what reason?the windows in usb what is it exactly?a virtual bootable windows?or a normal installation windows that u install windows with on the host pc?or what exactly ineed 2 know so i can answer u about the drivers .
2nd part of ur answer about starter windows 7..yes it doesnt have group policy..but its not that much faster than ultimate..its only 5 seconds more in ideal similar conditions on same pc.
3rd part of ur answer is not for me..its amalux..and his reply 2 u was wrong..he thought u talking about slow booting..and seems he didnt read u talk about automatic drivers search and installation.

i use "fast installation script..." to install win7 on my usb drive...
Instead of completely delete the drivers I would prefer to incite the search to another place so in case I still want to install drivers i can to navigate to the correct destination

In Windows XP and Server 2003, you can rename the C:\Windows\Inf\ directory to prevent driver installation. I don't know if that's the case for Windows > Server 2003.

It's a bit confusing, some talk of booting; some talk of installing; not the same thing of course. I guessed this is 'universal install' on USB and when booting to new PC, tries to install drivers for new found hardware; now seems you're describing a Win7 installer, like NT6FastInstaller or other? Maybe you should explain exactly what you are doing and give example of 'script' or installer or whatever you're using :worship:

Hi.
I use "Local Group Policy Editor" for something similar.
Look at the attached screenshot...

Edit: After reading more I see now that you have 7Starter on your UFD.
Why not "convert" to 7Ultimate?
