3 posts in this topic

Hi,

is it possible to identify the kind of the motherboard south bridge without driver installing(just in System deployment phase)?

Wrong Forum.

I would suggest looking at the physical Mobo, should have some sort of labeling on it.

@ericnail: Assuming the OP means to detect it with an AutoIt script, this is not the wrong forum.

@netegg: AuotIt is a high-level Windows API scripting language. I'm not sure, but I think the Windows APIs need the chipset driver loaded to know how to query it (i.e. perhaps with a WMI object that the driver adds). That would put you in a Catch-22: You can't use the Windows APIs to find out which driver to load because they need the driver to know which one.

Again, I'm not sure, but I believe the actual chipset driver installers can only tell based on assembly code level hardware queries they contain that AutoIt wouldn't have access to.

:(
