Windows 2008 R2 Install a Device Driver From the Recovery Console

This took me a surprisingly long time to figure out the solution.  If you are moving a bare metal image from one machine to another, you may need to install device drivers from the recovery console.

Move all the driver files you need to install to a directory on a USB stick and execute from the command prompt:


DISM /image:<driveletter> /add-driver /driver:<driver location> /recurse
