You need a classic driver, with *.inf file and usually one  *.sys and none up to several *.dll files. A setup file(*.exe or *.msi) will not work.


This driver files package must be in a folder, having the name of the *.inf file without the .inf extention.


Copy this folder into the <BaseDir>\lib\drivers\x86\win7 directory (create if not existant).


Important: You must flag that this driver is for installation.

Add an empty file <the driver's inf file>.install into the driver folder.


That may look like this:



The build will copy the package into <BaseDir>\output\wim-boot\drivers directory.

During boot of the PE the driver will be installed.


When for some reason you do not want to add a driver, just delete the flag .install file.

Create it again when you want to continue using the driver.
