How to add Boot Critical drivers during Unattended Installation of Vista

Sometimes having the right driver is critical for being able to perform an unattended install. For instance, your system may need special mass storage drivers in order for Windows PE to see your RAID hardware. Or if you’re performing a network install, then you obviously need to have a working network card driver on the system, right? Here are several ways you can add boot-critical drivers to Vista during unattended setup:

Use the Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsWinPE answer file section to add drivers to the winPE pass.

Use the Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE answer file section to add drivers during the offlineServicing pass

And if you need to add non-boot-critical drivers later during the installation process (for example, a video driver) then you can use the Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE answer file section to add them during the auditSystem pass. ')}
