Looking for .inf driver for Bluetooth Windows 7 to use with Windows Deployment Services.

Windows 7 Enterprise x64

Deploying with Windows Deployment Services

HP Probook 650 G2

I've tried the drivers available from HP which was 19.0.1603.630 Rev B.

I've tried to download and extract the 19.00.1629_64_Win7.zip but I am unable to extract the drivers from the included executable.

The newer BT_19.0.167_64_Win7.zip only contains the Intel Bluetooth.msi_Update folder. (Its only 6mg as opposed to approximately 37mg like the previous versions.)

If I manually run the setup.exe in the 19.00.1629_64_Win7.zip folder it will install the drivers for Bluetooth Radios and required network adapters. Needless to say I would hate to have to manually run this a couple hundred times.

Is there a driver I can use to deploy with my image?

Many thanks,

Hello MPM42,

 

 

For deployment purposes, or what we call a silent installation, we have a special download that is intended for IT Administrators:

 

 

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005773.html IT Administrator Links for Intel® Wireless Bluetooth® Software

 

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000017246.html IT Administrator Links for Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software

 

 

We also have an article addressing the http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005730.html Silent Installation of Wireless Components for Network and I/O.

 

 

Please let us know if this is what your were looking for.

 

 

Best regards,

Thank you for the information, but unfortunately I was already using those versions.

The first ljnk for Intel Wireless Bluetooth Software is where I got the 19.00.1629_64_Win7.zip and the BT_19.0.167_64_Win7.zip

I am aware of how to perform a silent install, but I do not want to do a manual or scripted install whatsoever. I would like to include the drivers with the software image itself. Is there a version of the driver that can be used for that?

The article for silent installation does make mention of a BTHS.msi and says it should be available from the download center but I am unable to find that MSI anywhere (I have checked from the newest 19 version of bluetooth software all the way back to version 2.6.1212_s64.zip it is not included in any of them). Can you point me to a link that contains that MSI?

Once again the BT_19.10.1635.zip files for win 7 (both 32 and 64) are only 4535KB in size and contain no .msi of any kind.

I was able to find a version of the BTHS.msi back in the 15.8 version for win 7 x64 and the xml matches what is in the Silent Install Documentation.

Is there an updated version of the documentation for newer versions? IE how do I edit the xml for version 19? If I try to follow the Silent install for 15.6 or later it errors out. The setup.xml file is structured completely different.

Hello MPM42,

 

 

Would it be possible for us to get an output of the commands you're running, and the results?

I download the bluetooth software from. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26068 Download Intel® Wireless Bluetooth® Software for IT Administrators which gives me BT_19.00.1629_64_Win7.zip

I extract the files from the .zip

If I try to call the setup.exe from the command line with any of the switches listed on the silent install page http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005730.html Silent Installation of Intel® WiFi Driver and Intel® PROSet/Wireless... it launches the executable like normal, regardless of the switch. for example:

setup.exe -quiet

setup.exe -q

setup.exe -silent

setup.exe -s

Each of these commands behaves the same as setup.exe

If I attempt to modify the setup.xml file at all I get the error "The installation XML file is either missing or corrupted. The setup application will exit". This happens if I add any of the Setup.xml configuration tags listed on the silent installation page.

I am going to paste the setup.xml files from first the version 15.8 and then below it the version 19 one so you can see just how different they are.

Hello MPM42,

We checked with our additional resources and confirmed that INF install is not supported on Windows* 7 for Bluetooth, however silent install is supported.

In this case you will need to download the http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005773.html Bluetooth® Software for IT Administrators, then use the following command line options for silent installation:

msiexec /i "Intel Bluetooth.msi" /qn

 

setup /qn

 

autorun /qn

notes:

  • "/qn" indicates quiet install – no popups.
  • "/i" does not apply to setup.exe or autorun.

Please let us know if this resolves the issue, or if you require further assistance.

Best regards,
