Azz is an unknown quantity at this point
Default DriverForge

Hi all,

I am just trying DriverForge for the first time on a laptop I have just done a fresh install on.

I am running it, as far as I know correctly, but it doesn't do anything to the missing drivers?

What am I doing wrong...?

Thanks,
Aaron

Aaron,

I found it hits about 80% - not bad.

I run it from a USB key and I generally have to revise the pointer to the uncompressed files, as the drive letter has changed. Otherwise, it's a nice start and usually, at least, puts the driver in for the LAN card and I can proceed.

I hope this is of some help.

Steve

Hi Steve,

I have it on a USB drive as well, it completes its tasks but none of the drivers are installed.

Azz,

Just going over the things I did:

Downloaded all of the Driverpacks
Extracted them to a separate directory on the USB

I think there are other ways, but this is what I did.

Hope this is some help.

Steve

PS FWIW I don't pay for online services very often, but I've found driveragent really worth the money to complete the job. The new edriver ID software works very well.
