Merging drivers from different host machines ?

is there a way of Exporting the drivers ntlite finds into a folder ? or having ntlite grab driver files from 2 different host machines ?

Example situation, I have machine A I can run ntlite and grab the drivers and integrate them into an installer, that installer works fine on machine B but it's missing some drivers, how do I extract from host machine A and B and integrate them into a single installer ?

NTLite can export drivers but i forget how. Think it can do that in Free/Unlicensed mode too. Fiddle around on the Drivers page.
Dont forget that some might need to go into the boot.wim - Microsft Windows Setup too.

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository is where all installed drivers live, some are also in C:\Windows\System32\DRVSTORE.
Folder into view - Details, use the Date Created option, Data Modified shows them in the same order.

Yeah I have been fiddling I didn't see any sort of an export to folder option ? I need to make sure the disk will be compatible with a handful of deferent hardware builds. The only way I know how to do it now is via mutlipass

Mount iso on hoast A, integrate hoast drivers close, run NTlite on hoast B integrate hoast drivers close, run NTlite on hoast C integrate hoast drivers close, move to a valid hoast machine and complete the setup with updates and everything else. There has to be a more efficient way of doing this

Currently Collecting drivers would love for a links for drivers for newer CPU's/chipsets.

Mount iso on hoast A, integrate hoast drivers close, run NTlite on hoast B integrate hoast drivers close, run NTlite on hoast C integrate hoast drivers close, move to a valid hoast machine and complete the setup with updates and everything else. There has to be a more efficient way of doing this
efficient or fast? getting drivers from 3 machines will take minutes if they are all connected up, if they aint it wont take much longer to connect em up.

If you got the paid version which I recommend. You will be giving this option.

Also, I never merged drivers from different Manufacturers like HP and Dell together, So i am not sure if they will conflict or break the image.

Maybe the older people here can answer that for us.

my experience(using AMD) is(years of nlite + ntlite) is that you are more likely to have issues with drivers from the same company.
tardis back a few years - amd would have different ahci drivers for their variouus chipsets but the actual filesnames are identical. nlite/ntlite would give a warning that a driver called (for instance)ahci.inf has already been added for integration, i remember getting this warning. we the (savvy)users would have each driver in a seperate folder but the tool only see's/saw the filenames. i suppose the same would happen with usb and other chipset drivers, and there are an awful lot of older intel systems still running. maybe nuhi could give us his thoughts on this :)
