Adding drivers to a new device driver set

This section describes the process for creating a new device driver set.

About this task

As long as there are no conflicting file names, you can put multiple drivers in a single directory and they will all be installed.


To create a new device driver set, follow these steps:

  1. Create the subdirectory, with no spaces or special characters, in sgdeploy\SGTKWinPE\Drivers to hold your new driver set.
  2. Create subdirectories in this new folder and copy your driver files into them.
  3. Create a file called DrvSet.ini in the root directory of your new driver set. The easiest way to do this is to make a copy of a DrvSet.ini file from one of the WinPE driver sets that came with the Toolkit.
  4. Update the fields in the DrvSet.ini file by using the following format:
    Supported Systems = all
    Windows Version = WinPE21architecture_type
    Scripting Toolkit Version = 2.1
    Creation Date = DD Month YYYY
    Creation Time = HH:MM:SS
    BuildID = 2008-06-01
    • Windows Version indicates the architecture type of your driver set: WinPE21x86, WinPE21x64, WinPE40x86, or WinPE40x64. The WinPE21 version drivers are installed with Windows PE 3.0 also, so you can use the same indicators for deployment scenarios built with WAIK 1.1 or 2.0. The WinPE40 version drivers are installed with Windows PE 4.0 for deployment scenarios built with ADK.
    • Creation Date is the day you created the driver set. Use the format: DD Month YYYY.
    • Creation Time is the time you created the driver set. Use the format HH:MM:SS.
  5. Run the build process to install all of the drivers in the set.
