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

Audio Test and Measurement Systems

This past Wednesday, I gave my presentation on Audio Band Test and Measurement at the AES Pacific Northwest Section meeting. Although I didn’t get to talk about everything I wanted to, I think it was a good introduction to the inner workings of these systems which are so integral to modern Professional Audio.

If any one has any interest, I will produce a few more installments, to cover the topics I just couldn’t fit into two hours:

  • 1. Time Frequency Analysis
  • 2. Impedance Measurements
  • 3. Analysis beyond Fourier

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend the meeting, it was a great diverse turnout with lots of good questions.
