windows 7 DISM /Add-Driver does it check if driver is already in the inf file
Posted on 2013-01-18
I am now adding my drivers into my image using DISM /add-driver.
My question is if I inject the drivers from 10 directories each representing the model of a machine living in c:\drivers, pointing DISM to c:\drivers with the /recurse option.
If I then run the DISM again against the c:\drivers with the /recurse to pick up new folder(s) will it re- add all the previous folders again or will it be smart enough to know it has already got the driver.
This answer will change my strategy to how I update drivers on the base using DISM. I will need to quarantine the previously added drivers to stop DISM from re-adding them and inflating the image needlessly
