I've made an important discovery here. Peimg.exe is checking for the existance of certain folders to determine if the image is valid. It needs to see Windows\Users\Public\Desktop. If that folder is not present, it will declare the image in not valid.

The reason the AddDrivers script was working for me in VistaPE version 012 is that I had made that folder in my Acronis scripts. That explains why AddDrivers has been working for my users. I made a change to the script to add the following line:

DirMake,"%TargetDir%\Users\Public\Desktop

Now the AddDrivers script is working in 012 when all my other scripts are disabled. Download it again and see if it works for you in 012.

Thanks a lot Mustang! Your script now works in VistaPE 12 beta3!

Thanks a lot Mustang! Your script now works in VistaPE 12 beta3!

You're welcome. Glad it worked for you.

Further tests have show that peimg only needs to see the folder Windows\Users to work.

Hello All!

Right now VistaPE use drivers from driverpacks.net, but it's drivers for Windows XP and many not work with VistaPE, i plan make my own drivers pack for v.12, only for LAN and SATA/RAID/SCSI drivers now. Can you help with searching for all Vista compatibility drivers? I need only URL to source... Thanks!

ps drivers pack will be available only when i rewrite vpeldr with autoIT :huh:

I'd love to have these drivers added ->
http://www.nvidia.co...ista_20.09.html
It's for the nForce 730i chipset/MB/raid etc...

I would do it myself, I've used BartPE & Reatogo, but this is new to me as of a couple weeks ago and I haven't had much time to play with it. It's not as clear & simple to use, especially for a non-programmer like me. But I love this stuff!!! Thanks dudes!

Hallo,
First off, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has helped to put this all together, you have turned out to be an invaluable resource in working on my own VistaPE disks.

I've run into a little snag in integrating drivers... and have had no luck getting around it.

This is using Mustang's script:

*Deleted for being too long* :>
Thanks for your consideration and help!

Bah...

edit:

My oversight...

Ok so it is working now... but if I want to add... say 40 drivers... just a number I through out there, should I run this 8 more times? or as many times as I have drivers?

thanks.

Alright... i've gotten it working after banging out some quirks in my setup and realizing how the driver process actually worked.

I had 4 drivers for the Dell Optiplex 755 and 760 that I needed to add.

Here are the links:

Link for 755

Link for 760

Here are the INF's if anyone was interested in looking at them. I'm not sure I needed all three, but i figured i'd rather be safe than sorry.

Thanks again.

I have tried mustang's script and I have also tried extracting the MS.7Z from the adddrivers.script from Nightman that's included in the Vista PE, I can extract the Drivers & Windows directory and added all my necessary drivers for my nForce 730i board, that includes the necessary drivers for RAID, I can then re-add the newly created MS.7Z and re-add it to the adddrivers.script but when I create the PE when it boots up it doesn't detect the drivers I've added and I also can't change the drivers in the PE system either, it crash's when I right click into properties where I could select the appropriate driver. It just say's devman caused an error.

Please, any help with getting this to work would be greatly appreciated! If I can't get past this problem then the PE environment is no good to me.

Thanks guys,
Ryan

I was able to get mustang's script AddDrivers to work in v.11 after reading on a post by mustang that the script doesn't work in v.12 So now I'm using 11 and it works excellent.

I guess the only unusual thing is that in v11 not all devices are installed even though the drivers are there; simple things like the System Timer don't get installed, I actually have to go into device manager and reinstall the driver for it to be properly installed....

The adventure of adding more scripts continues.....

@Mustang
Hi,
i've tried your script for the drivers, with the v12 and it does work.
Could you modify it in order to recursively scan a specified directory and calling as many times need the PEIMG command?
In this way i could add all the drivers in one directory as many times i need, and run the same script again and again without modify anything.
If you could do this, you would be the real man eheh :cheers:
Thank you btw for the work up till now!

Windows Update Catalog has Lots of Drivers that are not included in the orginal vista pressed disc. You could do quick search on the website for scsi/raid/sas/nic drivers and it will return tons of results.

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7


I found however that you have to be careful they host the same driver under each device name that it supports. You will need to compare the Device ID's to make sure that there is no duplicated drivers.

Hi,

does anybody got an Intel 82567 LM network card working with Vista PE.
I tried different scripts, but I haven´t found a way to get the Intel driver working:
Download URL:
http://downloadcente...s...a*&lang=eng

The driver works with VPE (german computer newspaper c´t VistaPE project). There, I have only to copy the driver at the driver\l directory.
At VistaPE, I haven´t found a way to get this working.

Regards,
Alexander
