I've tried adding the drivers to the local image and added the driver
location to the registry. Upon re-RISing the devices STILL aren't manually
found. What's odd is that I can go into Add/Remove hardware, select the
unknown device and have Windows automatically find the drivers for it. When
I do this the drivers are found and installed. Why would it install this way
but not on reboot?? I don't get it.
