You may or may not know this little trick. I just found this the other day and thought it was pretty cool and that I should share. During a Windows XP installation you can hit Shift F10 and open up a command prompt window.
This only works during the GUI part of the install, not the blue and white text screens. You default to the C:\Windows\Inf directory so I’m assuming you can inject drivers during the install of the OS. So the next time you are installing Windows XP from scratch give it a shot.
