hi all,

im trying to figure out how i can add the uncompressed DriverPacks left by the DriverPacks BASE "Keep The Drivers" method from an existing XP installation into a 2003 installation.

first i tried copying the DriverPacks from the XP to the 2003 into the exact same place (C:/WINDOWS/DriverPacks) and copying the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DevicePath string from the XP into the 2003 but this was not successful.

what am i missing? i thought that would work. other registry settings needed?

Im going back through Wimb's IMG_XP tool looking for more clues but if anyone knows how i can do this, please let me know.

this 2003 is 32bit, I used USBoot tool and installed EWF to make it bootable on USB flash, it boots on foreign hardware fine but must manually add drivers each time.

I'd like it to install drivers automatically like XP does but when I try to integrate the DriverPacks the same way as XP, it doesnt work do now Im trying to do it after installation.

surely its possible, but how?
