I have used Double Driver to successfully copy various drivers and correctly attached them/encoded them into the generated driver scripts.

Looking into the ISO, these files are present in the final build.

However, it seems the build entirely fails to associate any of these drivers with the devices! (Obviously I boot up on my real computer and not via a Virtual Machine).

I have tried several drivers and several devices. I cannot get ANY to be correctly installed when I boot the finished build up.

In fact looking at the device information inside the build, it appears that essentially no drivers are correctly associated with any devices, though I have screen output and mouse input etc.

I had really wanted to get my audio card/ adsl drivers to work. I also tried adding various Windows Kernal drivers, such as sound related drivers, at least ones that sounded related to sound.

Any ideas anybody?

edit: Id just like to point out that when building the ISO, no errors occured whatsoever. It just doesn't seem to "work".

edit2: When it boots up, it says something like windows cant load "the ports installer" and recently it seems to have added "can't load the media installer".

Also many of the devices are labelled as unknown in the device manager, but apparently are working. Some have a yellow question mark but are said to be working correctly. The ones with a yellow question mark and a yellow exclamation mark on top of it are apparently not working.

On one other note, I have looked at some of the scripts. Some of the syntax seems fairly apparent. But without reference information I cannot fully understand the scripting language. I find it interesting and would like to learn more? But what scripting language is it? The only scripting type language I am familiar with is PHP. Where can I find more information about how to use it? I will have another look on the winbuilder homepage, but I *believe* nothing was there, though perhaps I missed it :thumbsup:

edit: oops I see it now. I should not rush through things so much, but with all the computer related stuff I'm mucking around with, each day to me at the moment seems "too short" :D

Thanks for your time.

To get your added drivers to be recognised by the system, depending on the driver etc, you either need to modify txtsetup.sif with appropriate entries, or add appropriate registry service entries, or run hwpnp.

Sorry I had to be quick, but hope this points you in some directions.

No that helps, I'll look into those areas. Thanks!
