Export Windows drivers from running systems08 Dec 2023 - Tobias Erdle
Today I stumbled over a usually hardly ocurring problem when installating a Windows system: How to install drivers in an offline environment when the distributor doesn't provide an actual archive?
Fortunately I had a pre-installed reference installation and could extract the drivers with this Powershell command:
Export-WindowsDriver -Online -Destination [DESTINATION DIR]
It is important to have
-Online enabled, so the currently running system is used.
