I am trying to include Intel HD Graphics 3000 drivers to my Windows Embedded Standard 7 image to support a new motherboard however when I add the drivers to the image the post sysprep installation slows to a crawl and does not complete successfully.
The installation appears to run as normal until approximately 35% when the graphics driver gets installed, this is noticeable as the screen flickers and the resolution changes, after this point the percentage will rise slowly for several hours even though installation without the graphics driver takes less than 10 minutes. When looking at the logs it appears that it has been searching for devices during this time and even if I leave it to complete devices do not appear to be installed correctly and subsequent installers fail to run.
I have tried tried starting from a basic/empty Windows Embedded image, then adding the graphics driver. This image worked however after adding either the extra font packages (Chinese, Korean etc.) or the latest updates/fixes from Microsoft the image on longer worked.
Here are the drivers I am attempting to install: Intel HD Graphics (Windows 7 32 bit zipped)
I have tried installing them by putting them Out-of-Box Drivers and by running the setup before running sysprep; both ways lead to the result above.
Apologies if this is not the correct forum to ask this question, if that is case please direct to the correct place.
Thank you for your help.
You should load the graphics driver into an unattended installation file. The newest versions of Sysprep look to that file for the correct way to execute "3rd party" drivers. For additional assistance on this issue, look at MSFN for Unattended Installation files for Sysprep.
