Windows 7: Save installed drive to folder

Save installed drive to folder

Is there any way or program (must work on x64) that can take a driver installed on my system, and save it to a folder with a driver .inf file?

Reason is that I want to take a couple of drivers like my video, and hard drive driver and intergrate them into my windows setup DVD.

You'll need to add them manually, using Vlite or something similar.

but how can I find the driver from it, or does this program automatically extract the driver from a device.

From the Drivermax website:
"You can also export all your current drivers (or just the ones that work ok) to a folder or a compressed file. After reinstalling Windows you will have everything in one place!"

So use Drivermax first, then Vlite...
Use the insert button to insert which driver folders to integrate by selecting any inf file from it.
Once the insert button is pressed you will get 2 options: Single driver or Multiple drivers folder. First one is self-explanatory, and the second one is useful when you keep all your drivers separated in subfolders inside some unique folder, then you can point to that main folder with this option and it will prompt with the list of all found drivers for faster selection which to integrate.

In the Already integrated drivers box will be listed found drivers from previous vLite sessions and you will be able to remove them, so you can easily update the drivers from that image. Just mark for deletion old drivers with Delete mark button and integrate newer drivers in the Integrate drivers list box, once the changes are applied the distribution will contain only the newer drivers plus unmarked once from the older session, if any.
