I am attempting to load the drivers for this machine post installation of the OS in a scripted installation.

I am unable to install the IDT HD Audio drivers in an unattended fashion. Anyone ran into this and have a solution?

None of the /s or accept EULA type switches seem to be working for me.

Did an AppDeploy Repacker .msi file and it is not working properly either.

Any help would be appreciated. Need to get about 50 of these out in the next week and a half......

dyehardfan,

Have you tried extracting the driver with 7zip or winzip?

After the file is extracted zip up the contents and upload to the KBOX.

Command line should be setup.exe -s

Unfortunately a straight zip extraction doesn't work for that specific SoftPaq, try the universal extractor from legroom.net or run the SoftPaq with the -e switch, I believe it will just extract it to C:\SWSETUP\SPXXXXX by default. Additionally HP's SoftPaq Download Manager has a Download & Unpack option and gives you access to pretty much their entire SoftPaq catalog in one location.

I am also curious if there is a reason to install this driver vs. adding the drivers into the KBOX drivers share.

Yeah, tried that to no avail. When you unzip it, it has a bunch of unusable files. This is normally my first step.

I did this first, used Double Driver to harvest all of the drivers off a factory HP reload. When the computer boots for the first time after the scripted install the Add/Remove Hardware wizard still pops up.

I will try the -e and see what I can see.

Thanks guys, I'll update this thread either way.

-e definitely does not work. just pulls up the installer.

Thanks for the heads up on the Universal Driver Extractor. This might have done the trick. Won't be back in front of the 8440p until Monday, thank the gods, but will try running the extracted setup.exe with /s on it Monday and see what happens.

try to unzip it and run this line to install the inf files, it might not install software, only drivers:
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\path\*.inf

ok, running the extracted setup.exe /s works like a charm. only problem is when I did so the Audio still did not work on the machine.

Stupid HP's. I have to run the setup for the NVIDIA Video Card before the Audio will work. Writing the installs and reordering them properly has solved the problem....I think.

Let's blame NVidia AND HP on that :)
I've difinitely run in to that before (sorry I'm late to chime in). The sound and video card are integrated so part of the driver is embedded in the NV card. Good sleuthing though- I'm sure this won't be the last time is happens.
