This is exactly what I was looking for.

I am an Admin @ Microtrain.net

We have Master drives that we build to suit 1 type of machine (unfortunately we have a varied selection on cost effective PC's gathered.)

I was going to drop all the drivers into system32, but this seems more economical.

Thanks again.



Thank you.

But still, when you compile the kernel for your CD you still pick with drivers you include in the kernel/as modules.
You can't compile modules on a different kernel and then try to use it on another kernel, it won't work.

I see.

I will have to find out exactly what needs to be done. Maybe compiling a driverpack into the recovery CD's kernel. I know you can do customize Knoppix Live CD's. Maybe I can customize this Recovery CD with driverpacks.

Isn't DP for Linux is a bit redundant? Most Linux drivers get included in the kernel itself eventually, it is only the binary drivers that can't be included.

Only for the high-level Linux / Unix systems that have everything installed.

I am working with the text-based Windows Recovery via Linux (very slim, 3+ MB).
I would like to fill the CD with drivers; mostly Mass Storage for accessing NTFS SATA/RAID from Linux.

I could get this all done easier with Knoppix DVD and a 1MB download and compile.
But most do not have a DVD in the office, and I couldn't download if there is no internet.

This is what I ran into also.
ERD Commander 2005 runs on the WinPE platform which is not supported as I can project.

What would be the best / most efficient way to hunt down all of these drivers?

I would love to create a DriversPack for Linux, it seems to be my future OS that will allow me to retire early.

I just seen some tutorials in the 3rd Party forum...

I was wondering if there would be a way to collect Linux drivers or are there only Windows Drivers on http://www.DriverPacks.net

I would like to be able to reset my clients passwords on machines that are not supported by me.

For the CD that uses Linux and needs Linux drivers:


Instead of using Winternals Administrator Tools (Password Recovery) which I could use easily [costly], I would like to use the Open Source version of ntpasswd.
