Boot Land _ Project forge _ [tool] Driver Index

Posted by: Dhilip89 Feb 14 2008, 08:18 AM

Hello, I just made a simple tool that will make including driver pack into ETBoot project simple.
It will index all subfolder that contains *.inf file and write them into registry, thus Windows will automatically search all indexed directories for driver then install them.

How to use:
Just put the DriverIndex.exe into the folder that subfolder contain drivers then run it.

Note:
This is an unsupported application, use it at your own risk.

Download:
 DriverIndex.zip ( 297.12K ) : 792

What does it do with mass storage drivers? Are services and CriticalDeviceDatabase entries generated?

Thanks,

No, neither both of them.
It just generate registry for: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DevicePath

OK, thanks for the info.

Both of the additional registry entries I mentioned are necesary for booting no different hardware.

Galapo.
