    Hi Guys, Quick Question

    I have a windows 7 ultimate installation, the machine is currently in ''audit mode'' (Ive sysprep -generalised the machine but rebooted it back into audit mode because I wanted to do something).

    Simple Question, how do I manually add addtional drivers to the installation? is there somekind of folder I place them in within the installation (for example, taking the sys files and putting them in the drivers folder or something like that).

    Or maybe ive got the wrong idea and MS mean I can simply download and install out of box addtional drivers and then capture the image and deploy it.

    Generally we capture an image and then add drivers with the dism /add-driver command, but i think you can manually install drivers/software whilst in audit mode

    This seems to confirm it

    The last roll out I did I ended up installing Windows 7 on a virtual machine and the installing all the drivers I needed (3 hardware builds).

    In the answer file when running oobe I put in the PersistAllDeviceInstalls entry.
