Automatic installation of the RNDIS driver


Why when you connect a Linux USB Ethernet Gadget for Windows 7/8, and perhaps others, Windows does not install the driver automatically?

The driver is already on the hard drive and Windows knows the DEVICE class. Should be simple. Am I missing something?

Best regards



Welcome to Microsoft Community forum.  Let me help you with your concern.

Windows uses information files (INF) the installation program to install the following components for a device: one or several drivers that support the device.

INFs (v = vs. 85) .aspx

To use the Remote NDIS driver with a USB device, you need a file INF. see this Microsoft article.

Remote NDIS INF model

I hope this helps. If you need help with Windows, let us know and will be happy to help you.

  • Windows Vista will not start after the automatic installation of the patch Ms.

    My Dell laptop does an automatic installation of the latest MS patches (12/08/10) and now he can't boot into windows.  All tests show that the material is fine, but an error at the end of the "bad update patch" said test results I can not even to go back to a previous restore point.  This happened to me the year last on my desk... same thing, but it's XP which could not start after an automatic update for the Member States.  Dell technical support told me that MS knows what is happening, but it is not supposed to be public knowledge.  I need to know if there is a fix, in addition to erase everything and do a complete reinstallation of the operating system.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.


    Restore point:

    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.



    If the system or Mode restore safe work not and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

  • Satellite M70-193: installation of the graphics driver - issue minimum requirements

    I can't install the driver on my M70-193, this meesage is coming "this system does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software. Setup will close. What can I do? Thankss...


    Very strange?  :|
    How have you tried to install the graphics driver and what graphics driver you tried to install?
    You must use the on the Toshiba page.

    I recommend you to first download the graphics driver.
    Then go to Device Manager and remove (uninstall) the graphics card in the system.
    After restarting again the OS should automatically find the new device and ask start the installation.

    In this case, you must follow the installation procedure and install the new driver downloaded.

    Good luck

  • Satellite Pro P200 - 17 c: Win XP won't load - installation of the SATA driver


    I have a satellite pro p200 - 17 c I've had good years, allways worked without any problem.

    Last week when I booted the laptop, windows won't load and I find myself safe mode selection screen. No options whatsoever me to windows loading, I tried F8 and still nothing.

    I tried the restore cd that reimagee the drive but I get the same thing, I tried a new hard drive, once again the same.

    But if I try to load windows from an OEM to install that software does not because it is a sata drive and there is no floppy drive. I have an external floppy drive I use, but it is not known now.

    Any ideas or suggestions?


    Go to BIOS and set it to default settings.

    In this case the SATA mode must be on AHCI. In this case the SATA drivers are required to install the Windows operating system. But as much as I know that Windows 7 already contains the SATA drivers if usually you don t had to add SATA drivers while OS installation the installation program.

    However, here is a nice HowTo document that helps you add SATA drivers for Win XP installation disc.

I once, install as recommended drivers that I have problems with the graphics driver because it will not be installed because it requires a reboot and then I can't install new programs that require a restart that the driver has not been installed correctly.

    Generally, the display driver installation should help. As you know sometimes it is not easy to fix this kind of problem and sometimes is much better recovery procedure.

  • Satellite L300D - need help with the installation of the display driver


    For 1 month, I need to update my display on my Satellite L300D driver (PSLC8C - 06NO19) with an ATI RADEON 3100.

    I tried to download the drivers on the Ati site, but when the installation has finished, nothing has changed. My driver is still the old man.

    I tried to download the driver from the Toshiba site, but for my model, I found the same old driver.

    Is there a way I can install the driver manually, like a normal computer? Or I'm stuck with this driver, given that Toshiba does not seem to take care of my old L300D :(

    Thanks in advance,


    PS: Sorry for my English but I'm French from the Canada game


    > I tried to download the drivers on the Ati site, but when the installation has finished, nothing has changed. My driver is still the old man.

    did you remove the old driver before installing a new one? The old driver must be removed and laptop rebooted and installed the new driver, then. Note, I read many threads on an installation driver from the vendor's site in this forum, as not recommended due to overheating which provided with the toshiba drivers updated
