    How to add a driver that does not contain a .INF file in Windows ICD?


    Creating an Window 10 Pro image to use for company computers. I've downloaded and extracted all the drivers of a computer model. Most of them I was able to add in Windows ICD except for the Intel Chipset Driver. Reason being, it does not contain a .INF file when extracted, just a .EXE to run and install. Is there a way I can had a Chipset Driver to his image?

    Thanks.
    Bill.

    The word "driver" is ambiguous. It can refer to either one of two different things:
    > The "driver package" - This is all the files needed to implement the h/w interface. Every driver package has an INF file
    > The "driver installation app" - an EXE file which, like any other EXE, is an application level software isntall. The vendor might use the app to do extra error checking, present a GUI interface, or install app level software. It always includes the the driver package. Catalyst Control center is an example of appl s/w installed as part of the EXE "driver" file you get from the vendor web site. CCC is not part of the graphic controller driver package.

    Run the EXE file on the target system. Use a tool like Double Driver to backup drivers (it actually creates a collection of all driver packages - each in its own folder). Folder names are named after the devices. You'll find the driver package you want there.

    You can unpack the .exe driver setup file using the freeware 7-zip.
