install the Ethernet Controller driver first before any other drivers

    Question

  • For Windows 7, is there a way to tell Windows upon first boot to load/install the Ethernet Controller driver first before any other drivers? For our image, we have Windows automatically search and install drivers if for ex the hard drive has been placed in different hardware. There's seems to be a certain order that drivers are searched for and installed (alphabetically i think). 

    I've tried using the DevicePath method (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731664(WS.10).aspx) and this does not affect which driver installs first, etc.

  • This seems to be not good idea. First driver should be chipset, unless it is in the installation package.

  • Ok. I suppose it doesnt have to be the absolute first driver loaded on boot, but do you know of any vbs scripting or batch scripting that could be done?
