Unable to autoinstall ANY drivers on XP Pro
Posted on 2007-07-28
I just purchased a new ThinkPad T60p running Windows XP Pro. I'm having an odd problem with installing drivers.
When I plug in any device (even a thumb drive!) I get the add new hardware wizard. If I select to install the drivers automatically, it fails and says it can't find any drivers. If I manually point to the c:\windows\inf directory, it will install the drivers just fine.
I confirmed Plug-n-play service is indeed running, but I can't figure out what the issue is. Any ideas on how to rectify this so that drivers that are already on the system install automatically?
