Acronis Cloning using universal, driver download and unpack to specific location

I'm trying to clone an HP PC from an image that was made from a Dell using Acronis. In doing so I have to point the software to a location that has the drivers for the HP. When I download the drivers from HP it downloads an executable that I guess extracts the actual INF files to a temp directory. I'm trying to figure out how to change the location where these driver file go so that I can add that location to the cloning software so that the HP will boot. Any and all suggestions are very welcome.

Thank you,
Brian

Hi Brian,
It's probably a self-extracting zip. Two ideas for you: (1) Find the temp folder where the self-extractor put it and copy it wherever you want. (2) Don't execute the EXE. Instead, use a zip utility, like WinZip, to extract its contents to wherever you want. An excellent, free, zip utility is 7-Zip:

Joe,

If the driver file is an exe, how do I handle that?

The driver file itself is not an EXE. Only the Setup file is an EXE (or, of course, the self-extracting zip, with the setup EXE inside it).
