How To Install Third Party Drivers into Active@ Boot Disk?

You may load drivers automatically at boot time or use Active@ Driver Installer component.

Load Drivers Automatically at Startup

If you know that your hard drive has damaged drivers, or if you have older or uncommon RAID type or SCSI type drivers, you may create a folder named BootDisk_Drivers on the root of any logical drive and load drivers along with their configuration files into it.

Active@ Boot Disk will detect .INF files inside a folder named BootDisk_Drivers, and install them automatically during the boot process.
For more information, see BootDisk_Drivers and BootDisk_Scripts.


Use Active@ Driver Installer (Start > Load Driver)

Load Driver will help if you have SCSI drive controllers or an older or uncommon RAID type device.
Load Driver will also help if you cannot find any other type of driver, for example, video driver, sound card driver, etc.

To load a driver:

Load Driver

  1. Click Start > Load Driver. The Active@ Driver Installer dialog box appears.
  2. In INF Path, enter the path to the driver information file or click Browse to locate it.

After the driver is installed, you should be able to locate the driver using Utilities Explore My Computer. Similarly, the system should be able to locate and use the driver.

Note If you do not have the driver information file on the current drive, do one of the following:

  • Load a CD or DVD disk with the correct drivers into the CD/DVD drive or plug a USB device with the correct drivers into a USB port.
  • Close Active@ Driver Installer.
  • Use Active@ Web Browser or another Internet utility to download the driver from an Internet URL and save it to your hard drive.
  • Start this procedure again at step 1. (See above)
