A guide to make the ultimate Ethernet card driver cd

You may or may not have heard of the driver pack website. http://driverpacks.net/ It’s a website that contains different driver packs depending on the card. They have sound cards, storage devices, video cards and network cards. They are intended to slipstream them onto an XP installation CD. That way the drivers for every device ever made is configured on install. There is one problem with that : at the first part of the install where it copies files, the processing time is increased by 3x.

What works great for me is to just download the network card driver pack, and extract it and burn it to a cd. Now whenever you install windows XP for someone and it doesn’t install the network card, simply insert the cd, tell it to update the driver and look on the cd. 100% of the time it will find the driver for the card and you are ready to hit the internet for updates and further driver installs, I’ve never had it not work. Using this method, you don’t have to go on the internet using your laptop or desktop machine and search for a driver, put it on a cd or thumbstick and plug it into the machine to install it.

Hope you find it useful

Update: driverpack.net has now added Vista / 7 32bit and 64 bit drivers.

I thought the BTS driverpacks would only would if properly slipstreamed? I tried it once for the video drivers and it ended up with a half-installed driver.

Dunno what happened there. I've made a video driver CD also. So far 100% success.
