Topic: [Tutorial] Making your own DriverPacks for n00bs
This was made with the help of BÃ¢shrat the Sneaky's Tutorial
If you love Bâshrat the Sneaky DriverPacks and you want to know and easy way to make one yourself, well your in luck cuz I found an easy simple way you can make your own DriverPack thats "10 MBs or Less" depending on how many devices you have, the one for my machine is "6 MBs"
First you need a Driver Update/Backup program, I use "Driver Genius Professional" to Update and Backup my Drivers
Free Driver Backup Utils:
DriverGrabber Beta by Siginet, Driver Backup Beta by IcemanND
Simply update its Driver knowledge Database using the "Live Update" feature, now check to see if you have the latest drivers with the "Update Button", if not download, install them and reboot.
Now check the drivers you want to backup and hit the "Start Backup" BUTTON.
You will be left with files like these, with only the neccesary files needed for DriverPacks Base, Driver Genius leaves the other crap behind, now Rename them to something Short, 2 characters or less. (I delete the Files marked in RED)
Create a folder on the Desktop and name it D, inside that folder create a 3 folder and inside the 3 create another folder and name it whatever you want (I named mine R for Rick you can use your first initial if you prefer) put the renamed driver folders into R or whatever you named your folder, now use 7zip to compress it.
DriverPack Name Example: "DP_Name_wnt5_x86-32_X.7z" Change the part that says "Name" to anything you like, and change "X" to represent Version Number (example 1.0).
Compression: Archive Format=7z, Copresion Level=Ultra, Compression Method=LZMA, Dictionary Size=32 or 64, Word Size=256.
You will end up with something like this, your own DriverPack
Now put it into DriverPacks Base 3rd Party DriverPacks folder and slipstream it into XP, now make ISO burn and Enjoy
Good Luck! Making Your Own
