Windows 7: Recovery using Windows AIK, installation of drivers

Recovery using Windows AIK, installation of drivers

Ok I would like to first say that any and all help is welcome and I thank you all in advance. Communities like this are why I love beeing a geek.

I have an issue with a stop error of 7b, the reason is driver related. I am looking for some guidance on how to use the tools available in WAIK to install drivers on a installation of windows.

Hardware at my disposal:

USB 2.0 and 3.0 flash drives
More SATA drives than I wish to count, Windows 7 installation disk x64
Disk containing the program in .exe than auto installs drivers. Also has drivers but there are many different versions so I am unsure of which to use.

Thanks in advance,
