Re: Stand Alone CD for Vista

Thanks,

Can you please tell my how this is possible?

Does one still need to use vista-tool for this?

When i open vista-tool it is wanting the original vista dvd location. I am not needing to insert the drivers into a vista installation,
I only want to creat a stand alone driver cd for vista.

Do i need to only point vista-tool to my directory that contains the drivers??

I don't seem to find any documentation on creating stand alone cd for vista.

Thanks,
Trez

Search for DPINST.EXE

We use this for SAD with the Win NT 5.x drivers... Vista has not been done (by us) yet...

Re: Stand Alone CD for Vista

I have read the directions for creating a Vista S.A.D. but I am still a bit confused. I apologize if this is a really dumb question, but in the first entry in the S.A.D. FAQ, it mentions using DriverPacks Base to make a S.A.D. Is this just for creating a S.A.D. disc for Windows XP? Or is there also a version if DriverPacks Base for Vista? (Again, I apologize if this is a dumb question.)

Since I couldn't find a DriverPacks Base for WinVista, I read other discussions regarding a S.A.D. for Vista but I am unsure I am doing it correctly.

1. I made a folder to set up my Vista S.A.D., and named it "D".
2. I created a folder in "D" named "DriverPacks"
3. I downloaded all of the 32 bit Vista DriverPacks, and unzipped them, with the option to preserve subfolders, into the /d/DriverPacks/ folder.
4. I took the DPInst.exe and DPInst.xml files (version 2.01) from my DriverPacks Base folder I use to create a WinXP S.A.D. and copied them to /D/
5. I then burned folder /D/ and its subfolders to a blank DVD.
6. To run, I put it into a Vista machine, open the DVD and run DPInst.exe.

Am I doing this correct, or am I missing something?

I am also using vista and really satisfied with its facilities and tools. You can of course easily create a stand alone CD for vista.

A more advanced version of our S.A.D utility is in development here (2nd post): http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=4954
I am continuing to improve it's functionality but it's about 95% ready right now.  Works with all Windows versions (32 & 64 bit).
I'll try to create a new thread with better instructions over the holidays.
