Adding drivers to an existing driver set

This topic describes the process for adding drivers to a supplied Windows PE device driver set.

  1. Create a new subdirectory with no spaces or special characters in the root directory of the latest WinPE driver set of the desired architecture.
  2. Copy the new driver files into the new directory.
    Do not create any subdirectories under this new directory, or the drivers will not be installed correctly. In this step, driver files refer to raw data files (typically *.inf, *.sys, *.dll, and *.cat).
  3. Optional: If the device driver that you have is an executable program, install it to a system, and then fetch the raw data file from installation directory.
  4. Run the build process to install each driver in the set, including your addition.
