Hardware profiles....

I thought the whole purpose behind creating hardware profiles was to disable certain device drivers from being loaded, and enable others, depending upon how you are connecting your portable (and maybe it can also be used for troubleshooting, if you think that a certain driver is culprit).

The problem I am seeing is that I do not see any options within the Hardware Profiles tab that shows where to enable / disable particular device drivers.

Hence, I am a bit confused what that is not there.


(my computer properties, hardware tab, hardware profiles, copy default profile, and modify the newly created profile.  I can't see where I can configure my profile to only load certain drivers...)

you need to logon to that hardware profile and disable the devices in device manager.

Here's an MS document on it, though it is fairly obvious once you see it, just as Jay_Jay describes.
