You shouldn't really try capturing the driver installation portion of the setup it (usually) ends in tears [;)]

Instead, Aladdin conveniently provide a merge module to incorporate their drivers into MSI packages and I'd recommend you use it if possible.

The merge module can be downloaded here

and there is accompanying documentation within the zip file.

NB: If you decide to incorporate the merge module into the MSI you created (from your capture), don't forget to clean out all the original driver-related stuff that was picked up during the capture - it's no longer needed as the merge module will be doing all the work.

Try using a switch on the orginall install to make it silent.
Identify the original vendor install and try to create a answer file.
Winbatch is a cool tool to use for wrapping installs.
