    @f14tomcat , does the drive with the injected drivers not work on the Desktop as well?

    A backup for the backup... can never have too many heh?

    I'm thinking.. you have 2 drives for Desktop and tablet - the latter with additional (non-native MS supported) disk drivers...

    I haven't tried it on my new rig, but I would imagine the DT would get upset because of the dumb way Dell set up the NVMe SSD almost-quasi-kinda RAID0. Laptop/tablet being a MS Surface Pro 3, and DT Alienware R6, the hardware couldn't be farther apart! When I get brave, I'll try it. Worse that can happen is it won't boot, or see the SSD. Had that issue with Kyhi's PE and had to play with the .wim to inject the proper SSD drivers.

    OK, cool, would be interested to know whether there is a conflict with the additional drivers... Windows PE should be intuitive enough to find the correct drivers.. as long as they are in the wim.

    Ah, that's the point. At least here. If I make an install thumb, either Media Creation tool or roll my own, with any method, the install will boot, but not see the SSD. I have to include a folder on the thumb and manually add more drivers (Intel stuff), then the install will see the SSD. It's all very weird.

    with any method, the install will boot, but not see the SSD.
    1) Inject the ssd drivers into the Setup media's Boot.wim - following same method as with winpe.
    2) inject the ssd drivers into the setup media's install.wim - " "
    3) inject the ssd drivers also into the mounted Install.wim's - windows/system32/recovery/ winre.wim

    Image-Prep will do option 2 and 3 for you creating the new install.wim for the setup media.

    Yes, but for Windows Install Media, it's easier, and much quicker , to just copy the folder of drivers to the media, and use the built-in option at install time to add the missing driver. It's only needed that one time, when choosing where to install.
