as the title says?

is the RIS driver pack a follow on from rouguespears old pack for text mode part of setup in RIS?

  the title of this thread dosent mention HD but that is why it dosent work.

if you want to Add the standard ADI Soundmax 198x Audio driver for Dell GX270,280,GX520 & GX620 then the drivers from the windows update catalogue work. top is x86 & bottom x64 smile

Analog Devices driver update for SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio  Windows 7 Client  Drivers (Sound)  10/31/2006  113 KB 116177   
Analog Devices driver update for SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio  Windows 7 Client  Drivers (Sound)  10/19/2006  127 KB 130174

downloaded this pack & extracted this driver to install on  Dell GX520/620 but it dosent work.


Sorry for late reply. ill get some HWID's for you next week. im going to try the latest pack, this week but the last pack that worked for me on the dell PC's with the issue is 902. Since then ive had issues of the machine failing on install. Ive replaced mass storage & LAN but only replacing the chipset driver pack back to 902 resolves the issue.
  Im using the packs through Autoimage for my RIS images.

Hi Guys,
  I use the driver packs with Autoimage so the drivers are applied during the RIS installation process when installing XP. Ive been unable to use 1005 & the latest Chipset pack as during the install I get numerous errors relating to  oembios.sys &  a few other files when installing on Dell GX280 & other older dell hardware. If I use the previous chipset pack 902 we dont have any issues.

the chipset is
* Intel 915G Express

not sure if you can resolve this for the next pack.

Same resolution

Ive got 3 vostros all had the same issue. using the dell drivers worked ok.

its a driver issue

I installed my nice new Vostro 420 with this card in using the latest driver packs. All has been working a treat bar I could not RDP onto my nice new vostro. I done a bit og googling & found it could be related to video card drivers. To cut a long story short I uninstalled the drivers that went on from pack 8.12.1 & installed the latest driver for my NVIDA from dell. I can now RDP to my Vostro.

Been trying to get latest Graphics packs for 2 days now but it keeps reporting.

Hi overflow,
  maybe i need to report this to Roguespear then as his autoimage deals with the driverpack integration into my RIS images.
  The Driver packs seem to not exist on a normal workstation but they remain on a vmware install. I need to confirm with more testing on monday but Im pretty shore that is the case.

i need to run soe trsts but it may be an issue in VMWare Workstation.

DPsfnshr.exe is defernatley running. you cant miss the GUi that apears. it runs thorugh its bits aswell  ie Cleaning etc.

my runonceEX entry is

REG ADD %KEY%\002 /VE /D "Bâshrat the Sneaky Driver Pack Finisher" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\002 /V 1 /D "%SystemDrive%\DPsFnshr.exe" /f

I have other apps that follow this.

thie bin folder in root of C is remainnig.(I normally manually delete this & the log file. ive set not to delete so Bin file has remained but the log file dosent exisit.

dpsfnshr.exe & log files are not in c:\

im runnig base 8.05 with a RIS image created by Roguespears Autoimage.

dpsfnshr.exe is runnig from my runonceEX which it runs fine but its leaving all the drivers in c:\ even though ive got KTD disabled.

Looks good.

youve done yourselves out of some credit though as you forgot to mention the Proxy fix for the update checker which was back here topof the page.

When you burn drivers to optical media do you need to use a method(1 or2) or just extract drivers as above..?


(11 replies, posted in Other)

Cheers Helmi.

Just had a go & the extracted packs went in fine. The import is good as it searches in sub directories which is good. Ive seen microsoft stuff before where youve had to specify the entire directory path for each folder.

System Centre Configuration Manager links into Windows deployment system for deploying OS installs to machines.

In SCCM OS Deployment there is a driver import section. This is a prime candidate for Bâshrat the Sneaky driver packs, can I just extract the driver packs to import or do I need to run through a method(1 or 2) before importing the drivers..?

Weve got two machines at work on test. 4GB drive is a bit small for a base install at my work. with XPSP2, all updates, adobe reader, Office 2003 SP3 it leaves around 800mg once you have disabled system restore & done a drive compress like they recomend in the manual.
I would wait for the 9" screen/8GB drive Eee due out in march/april as this will make it alot better & worth the purchase. Not having to compress the drive will make it alot faster. For kids etc I would keep with the linux OS as its really quick.
