@Fernando

By your INF means the Intel chipset INF modded driver package that made by you for all kind of Cpu that is posted under the Intel Chipset thread

yes, I got the latest IO driver, not from station driver though, even SD has the driver which is dated, I got the latest from MUC

so, I request you to make a modded IO package like the INF, you can consider if you wish.

And can you tell me how to extract the driver files including INF from a EXE installer, I've tried 7zip & WINRAR but not able to find the INF & extract

@SM03:
What have your questions to do with the topic of this thread?
Regarding your driver modding request I repeat my answer: I do not modify any driver upon demand.

#18 RE: RE:Questions about the usage of NTLite by SM03 17.05.2018 22:09

I want to slipstream those INF files via NTlite thus asking for the INF file extraction from driver EXE file

@SM03:
Try it with the following "Run" command:

1
 
xxxx.exe -extract C:\Intel-IO
 


If you are lucky, you will find the extracted files within the folder C:\Intel-IO.

thanks, I will try that & let you know

#21 RE: RE:Questions about the usage of NTLite by SM03 18.05.2018 14:41

OK NOW THAT I TRIED THE METHOD YOU SAID ALONG WITH THE UNIVERSAL EXTRACTOR, IN BOTH, ITS POSSIBLE TO EXTRACT THE CONTENT OF AN EXE OR MSI INSTALLER BUT IN SOME CASES THE INSTALLER ACHAKE CONTAIN SOME UNKNOWN FILES THE EXTENTION NAME IS SHOWN AS the ONLY FILE SO DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TO OEN THOSE UNKNOWN FORMAT FILES OR HAVE YOU EVER FACED THIS KIND OF SCENARIO

#22 RE: RE:Questions about the usage of NTLite by SM03 19.05.2018 14:34

@Fernando Do you know any workaround to convert the Microsoft Silverlight (KB4023307) & Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830) exes to .MSU

All your recent questions have nothing to do with the topic "Usage of NTLite".
Please get the answers by doing a Google search.
Furthermore I don't like posts, where everything is written in capital letters.

@Fernando
About the capital letter, that was unintentional though, I didn't know & that the caps lock was on & without checking posted.

You only have to integrate the related *.INF file. NTLite will automaticly integrate all required files, which are listed within the INF file.

Try to unzip them by using 7-Zip.
By the way: I do not recommend to integrate the MS Malicious Software Removal Tool, because it will be updated resp.freshly installed my MS very often.

#26 RE: RE:Questions about the usage of NTLite by SM03 21.05.2018 14:08

I mostly able to find out all the INF for my required drivers but in some cases even after extracting the exe or msi via the cmd method or universal extractor, I am getting some generic files with unknown format & don't know what to do with those. I don't see any option here to merge an SS so that I can show you exactly what I am talking about

and about the 2nd matter, my concern is to convert those exes as cab or MSU so that those can be integrated via the update section easily as I don't want to place them in post-processing section. & yes, I know that MSRT updated every month by MS just like the CU, not very often

Which "generic files with iunknown format" do you mean?
As I already told you within my last post, you only need to integrate the matching *.INF file, the resr will be done by NTLite.
The INF file contains the informations for the OS Setup
a) which files are needed and
b) how to get them properly installed and working.
The only thing you have to make sure is, that all these required files are within the driver package.

#28 RE: RE:Questions about the usage of NTLite by SM03 21.05.2018 20:37

Well, as I told you, if there is any provision here to post SS then I would post that to show you about the generic unknown type files that I am getting by extracting some packages instead of the desired INF. Mostly I am able to collect all of the INF files for all of my required drivers

@SM03:
Usually all "pure" driverpacks consist of
1. *.SYS fies (= the real drivers)
2. *.CAT files (contain the digital signature)
3. *.INF files (Information files, most important for the integration)
Additionally some driverpacks contain *.DLL files (as co-installer files).
All other files, which you get after the successful extraction of an *.EXE Installer Set, are not needed to get the related device working.

#30 RE: RE:Questions about the usage of NTLite by EmmaRoyd 25.05.2018 18:21

Some driver pack installers are difficult to extract with 7zip, some drivers like AMD USB Filter driver need to be installed by the installer, right clicking the .inf, "Install" doesnt work. Sometimes AMD will put the same driver in multiple locations inside the installer. If i am using a new and unknown motherboard and chipset combination i will use official installers to see what my system needs, the installer knows better than me.

In this situation i will do a test install using old spare hdd or ssd. Install os then install all the driver installers and restart as needed. Make sure you have ALL your hardware attached, samsung nvme installer will not work if the drive is not connected. So you have attached All your hardware and run the installers needed so go to the following folder - C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository This contains all the drivers needed by your system. Set the folder view to Details. Toggle the list using the Date Modified tab so earliest date at the top, latest date at the bottom - see attached. You will easily spot your 3rd party drivers. Copy and back them up so you add them into NTLite later. Once you are familiar with your hardware combination you can just work from the backed up drivers and keep the installers in storage.

Edit - AMD USB Filter driver installs to this location - C:\Windows\System32\DRVSTORE so it will be worth checking here too.
Actually i would back up all drivers in those 2 locations anyway(always handy just in case) and if you are Liting and remove a driver you shouldnt have then you will be able to find it quickly.
