installing driver with .inf .sys and .cat
Posted on 2008-10-06
I am reinstalling Win XP on an HP workstation, the current installation sort of works - now when I try to reinstall that HP specific drivers, (softpack xxxx) it just creates a subdirectory with these files:
xxx.cat, xxx.sys, xxx.inf xxx.cva. I can right click the .inf file and "install" but nothing else seems to happen. If I manually copy the .sys file where I think it should go ( i386 ), and the .inf ( systems32) would that be enough ? I doubt it since it wouldnt update the registry. So, what to do ?
