Installing driver on hyper-v 2016 core

Copper Contributor

Hi All


I am looking for a way to install a RAID Controller driver on a Dell PowerEdge R530. the driver is a EXE file and usually is loaded through the GUI

Although I have Hyper-V 2016 Core and no GUI.


Does anyone have any suggestions on how I do this. I have tried a couple of powershell commands but they did not work

Taking a look at the exe with /?, you can extract the contents using /s /e=path

Inside the payload folder contains the inf,cat and sys files for the driver that you should be able to point to.

How about extracting the exe on another machine? Then you can try to install locally or remotely via Windows Admin Center (somehow Honolulu sounded more exciting)?
