Intel INF drivers

Can someone please tell me with the command line switch is to install the intel .inf drivers anyway?
Eventough the installer says you don't need a update I want to try them anyway and I've read a while back that there was a command line switch for letting the installer install anyway!
Something like /..?

Thanks very much for any help!

Hi, here's the list from the last version. I don't see the option you look for. I suggest you unzip your copy first and read the "readme.txt". you might find something there.
Good luck.


************************************************************
* 4. LIST OF AVAILABLE COMMAND LINE FLAG OPTIONS
************************************************************
The Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility supports
several command line flags for various installation options.
All command line flags and parameters must be separated by a
space, except for the language code after the '-L' flag.

Due to the different distribution formats available for the
Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility, the command
line flag syntax may vary:

1. Self-Extracting .EXE Distribution:
When installing this software using the .EXE
distribution, an extra '-A' must be appended to the
INFINST_xxx.EXE program call (i.e. INFINST_ENU.EXE -A)
in order to successfully pass command line parameters.
The extra '-A' flag for the self-extracting .EXE
package is DIFFERENT from the '-A' command line flag
option described below.

Example: To extract INF files using the '-A' flag
described below, the installation program
should be invoked as follows:

INFINST_ENU.EXE -A -A (optional -P)

2. Compressed .ZIP Distribution:
When installing this software using the .ZIP
distribution, there is no need to append any extra
flags to the SETUP.EXE program call in order to pass
command line flags.

Example: To extract INF files using the '-A' flag
described below, the installation program
should be invoked as follows:

SETUP.EXE -A (optional -P)

Below is a list of all the available command line flags that
may be used with the program call. Note that the '-L' and
the '-S' flags MUST be specified at the end of the command
line flag list.

Flag Description
---- -----------
-? Help flag. Displays the list of available
command line flags. This parameter works in
the Interactive mode only.

-A Extracts the INF files and README.TXT to
either "C:\Program Files\Intel\InfInst" or
the <Installation Path> directory specified
using the '-P' flag. The software will
NOT install these INF files to the system.
This flag can be combined only with the '-P'
flag option. All other options will be
ignored if the '-A' flag is specified.
This parameter works in either Silent mode
or Interactive mode.

-B Automatically reboots the system after
installation. This flag is ignored if '-A'
flag is specified. This parameter works in
either Silent mode or Interactive mode.

-L<LangCode> Forces the InstallShield user interface to
display the specified language during setup.
Note that there should be NO spaces between
'-L' and the 4-digit language code (see
below). This flag and the '-S' flag must be
placed at the end of the command line flag
list. This parameter works in Interactive
mode only.

-OVER AUD Overrides the default behavior of the
installer with respect to update of the
Audio controller device.

-P <Installation Path>
Specifies the HDD location to which the INF
program files are copied. If this flag is
not specified at the command line, the
<Installation Path> directory is by default
assumed to be:

C:\Program Files\Intel\INFInst

If this flag is used without the '-A'
option, only README.TXT will be copied to
<Installation Path>. The directory name can
include spaces. In this case, however, a
pair of double quotes (") must enclose the
directory name. This parameter works in
either Silent mode or Interactive mode.

-S Runs the Installer in silent mode. No user
interface is displayed. This flag and the
'-L' flag must be placed at the end of the
command line flag list.

Below are the language codes used with the '-L' flag:

Language <LangCode>
-------- ----------
Chinese (PRC) 0804
Chinese (Taiwan) 0404
Danish 0006
Dutch 0013
English (US) 0009
Finnish 000B
French (Canadian) 0C0C
French (Standard) 040C
German 0007
Italian 0010
Japanese 0011
Korean 0012
Norwegian 0014
Polish 0015
Portuguese (Brazilian) 0416
Portuguese (Standard) 0816
Russian 0019
Spanish 000A
Swedish 001D
Thai 001E
