Motherboard that finds its driver and install?(15 posts)
That kind of thing isn't really possible.
A motherboard can't just hand drivers over to the Operating System.
You can with some drivers burn a custom Operating System disc that includes a copy of the drivers to make reinstalls a bit easier.
Without the drivers, your board would only have limited functionality. The drivers on the cd typically are for things such as the audio, ethernet, usb, etc. And like everyone above has mentioned, most of the cd's have "Push this one button to install all the drivers" on them.
You could download the drivers, if your network card was able to work without the drivers. Otherwise you could put the drivers on a USB drive.
It would really help if you would explain why you don't want to use the driver cd, because it doesn't make much sense otherwise.
@jack: I was assuming that you would be putting the drivers onto the flash drive from another machine... and there shouldn't be issues in reading the files anywhere.
If you are using Vista, follow this guide:
If you are using XP, you can follow this guide:
Note that you would be much better off if you would explain why you don't want to simply install the drivers off the cd. It only takes a few minutes.
I agree with The Geek. Using the drivers CD should work best.
In fact unless you reinstall a lot then using nLite to make a disc with the drivers would be a lot more work to do then just installing them from the cd.
