hi @SIW2 i need your suggestion
i'm adding mass storage and chipset in boot.wim
i'm adding chipset,mass storage,lan,wlan, in install.wim
i'm adding mass storage and chipset in winre.wim

(chipset drivers are for usb 3 support)
(i'm not adding nvme drivers and all drivers are downloaded from driverpacks.net)

is this the right combination or i'm doing something wrong.???

One issue I can see is that very few devices are identical enough to use the same drivers, unless everyone you support uses an identical make and model of system, ( and not certain to work even then ), you will need to supply every variation of the drivers for every single sub component available. The complexity and variation of systems capable of running windows is the main reason that modern versions of windows rely of online driver installation in addition to the, (much larger than Windows 7 ), install media driver source.

@Barman58 driverpacks site solved the problem of complexity and variation of drivers see here Latest DriverPacks | DriverPacks.net they really did a good job with drivers.

If you feel you can trust a third party then good luck to you - I only ever use drivers from the hardware manufacturers, which is the way I've worked for over 30 Years

+1 on that. Plus, when you download 3rd party drivers they will also install a bunch of bloatware and change other settings.

Yes, that should be fine. :)

I get them from here
Forum - USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers (original and modded)

Driverpacks.net is also well respected

@Barman58 @chefduane driverpacks team have mostly .inf files extracted from original drivers, and there are no bloatware. and i think you are right that i shouldnt trust too much on 3rd party. but driverpacks.net seems like a trusted site. i will try their drivers and if i ever face any problem, i'll post such problems here to let everyone know.
