Here is a script developed from the original SAD script. I'll call it SAD2
It'll automatically determine the running system OS arch and extract the correct DriverPacks from the right directory. Very slick.
It will then install or upgrade the drivers on all your devices from the supplied drivers and clean up after itself.
Supports all NT5 (XP/2000/2003) & NT6 (Vista/Win7/Server2008) OS types.
To get this working in Win7 during an unattended install do the following "setupcomplete.cmd" method.
Create the following folder structure to your Win7 disc:
%Win7-Disc%\sources\$oem$\$1\D\SAD2 (entire SAD2 folder with all DriverPacks goes here)
Add the following code to the setupcomplete.cmd file.
@echo off START %systemdrive%\D\SAD2\DP_Install_Tool.cmd /s
