Hey guys found this in my travels you may already know about it but hey ho!

nVidia have now started supporting M chipsets (those found in lappys) they are currently in beta format at the moment but they support both Vista and XP 32 bit and 64 bit, here is the link


Could these be included in the packs once they get past the beta stage my apologies if this is already known about sad

Thanks for listening!


EDIT - Ive seen that the new packs already support this, my apologies for this post folks sad

Well the thing is i do a lot of PC repairs and got fed up with finding drivers for systems and things hence why i want so many drivers in my version of XP but in this case i think you are probably right and i will remove the extra drivers save for certain ones and see how it goes from there.

Thanks for your time Helmi much apprecitated!



(15 replies, posted in Other)

1. Ok no worries then any i find that i need I will make sure to make notes and let you know about them on the forum to be added in or at least for you guys to look at (i would like to help you guys in some way since the driverpacks have solved so many of my problems)

2. I cant remember where I got them from.. one of them was from Packard Bell but I cant remember what it was now lol the graphics ones for my lappy i can send you since they are not supported by my manufactuer. They are the graphics drivers for the Acer Aspire 7720G with the GeForce 8400M GS 256MB card.

3. If you dont know then you dont know m8 no worries wink

4. So in you experience then would it be worth to me to just bin the drivers I have save for my lappy ones etc and just use the driverpacks?

5. I have the autorun for the WPI so im toying with the idea of using that but will see how things are...

Thanks for your time buddy much appreciated!!


Thanks for these repacked version i got a 404 error so i went to the link you provided (ftp) and got all of the files from that directory.

Thanks again I will have a bash at repacking them to see if i can make them smaller still m8 if i can then i will post them all here buddy!

Thanks for all your hard work wink


Thanks for the reply there Overflow i have now also used this addon in nLite and it recognizes it and intergrates no problems so goin to check on how goes! Defo goin to look into the RVM Intergrator always handy to have more than one way of doing things!! wink

Thanks again buddy!

a very kind offer...

we add drivers when they are reported as missing...
since no missing drivers have been reported, then there are no missing drivers wink

we are aware that some drivers do have newer versions out and the team is working on upgradeing them.
that is the hard part, getting them to coexist.

As i said previously there is no sense in compareing thousands of drivers to each other when it is a given that DriverPacks is a complete set of drivers. I say this because we get a million downlloads a month and never get any reports of missing drivers. what more proof do you need?

on a different note we only add drivers from OEM sources...
that being the case a list of links to OEM files would be the thing to have.
not that we don't trust people - it is just good policy to only use files we have downloaded ourselfs from an OEM.

as always, have a great day

When you say OEM sources do you mean somewhere like say driverguide.com? I have a few missing drivers which are for lappys but i have had to download one of them the Packard Bell site and the other I had to find a compatable one for my graphics card in my lappy.

Out of curiousity do you per chance have any idea on how many drivers that are in the packs? Would you say its over 50,000 or so? Im asking since I have these seperate drivers which have 50,000 drivers in but if the driverpacks have 50,000 in then its a bit pointless me using these other drivers since all its doing is bulking up my XP DVD (due to me using the WPI)

Thanks for your time Overflow very much appreciated from you and everybody on here for that matter! I have been having problems creating my own packs but I will post that problem in the right section later on when I can get a bit organised lol!

Thanks again Overflow wink



(15 replies, posted in Other)

I always try to think outside the box its surprsing what you can come up when you put your mind to it! smile

I will (at some point) upload all my drivers that i have to a hoster like ifile.it or something similar then you can have a look at them and see since if they are all included in the driver packs then it will reduce down the size of my XP install.

Please let me know if this is ok to do?

Thanks for your time Overflow much appreciated.

This would actually mean a great step backwards as that's the situation we've had two years ago or so wink

The progress bar features was added due to great demand.

Anyway, you may like this:


Thanks for the link there Helmi much appreciated will defo be checking this out!!! Thank a lot for it you are a star. Just got see if I can work it out now on how its used lol!!!

Thanks again!


EDIT - I have had a look at this and have absolutly no idea how to include this addon!!!!!!!

I think I get you now guys thanks for the info I might have a nosy at it and see what its like. I like having plenty of options open for doing things!

Thanks again folks.

Sorry but no discussion about warez is allowed at all im afraid sorry sad


(4 replies, posted in Software)

LastXP is warez and warez are not supported on this forum.

Just had a thought I run a script made by Tomcat over at msfn which extracts the .NET Framework and repacks it using 7zip now somebody else has used a modified version of an sfx file to that is installs totally silently now extraction screen or anything! Would that be of use to you if I sent it to you dude?

Basicall to try and tidy up my installation really by removing splash screens etc no other reason. Everybody who I come across that is looking into customising XP I send them here to you awesome folks!

Ive read up a little on it but it seems that everything it does can be done with nLite, so whats the difference between the two? Im thinking of trying to see how its different just would like some info from other users of the Intergrator.

Thanks! smile


Ahh reet ok no worries Overflow just a thought wink

Currently when extracting the driverpacks you get a progress bar for each pack, I think it would be awesome if there was just one screen saying "driverpacks are decompressing/installing please wait" or something similar. Im assuming this would need a tweak of sorts in Driver Base but ive no idea so I apologise if this is a request for the driverpacks themselves rather than Driver Base.

Thanks for listening

Basically what it says really Ive seen this in a few places now but from what i can tell everything that can be done with can be done in nLite anyway so why bother? Im just trying to understand the need to use both. If it removed junk files or something then ok fantastic! if not then the question remains why use it?

Im always open to new options and new ways of doing things more so if they are better than the way I currently do them tongue plus if you never ask you never know!


Not to sure if this will help you or not but heres to trying!

I have run the driverpacks from WPI with no problems by doing the following...

1. Slipstream the driverpacks as you normally would do (for me method 2)
2. Tell it you want to manually run the finsher so it can copy it to the clipboard.
3. Run WPI.hta
4. Under Tools (I think) tell it to run a script/cmd/whatver before the rest of the WPI is run by ticking the check box.
5. Press Ctrl+V and it will copy the finisher from your clipboard.

Sorry if this aint what you are after just trying to help.


Nifty control panel thingys???? I have no idea to what you are referring here dude sad sorry. It dont really matter since I the splash screen can be hidden so its cool just being nosy more than anything.


Thank buddy i feel a reet plonker!!! big_smile still good for a giggle at least!

One last small thing still tho is if you do not use KTD does the finisher still need to run? just curious really since at least i know that the splash screen can be hidden now.

Thanks for you quick response Overflow much appreciated!!!


EDIT - I have found the .ini file in question so will do a test to make sure it removes the splash screen which im sure it will. Thanks again guys!

Is there a silent switch that can be used for the DriverPacks Finsher.exe so you do not see the grey box that pops up while it is running it? For that matter if you are not applying the KTD does it need to be run at all?

Thanks in advance folks sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section.


EDIT - I think I have found the answer here ----> http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=946

but is this .ini file created once the driverpacks have been included using Driver Base?
