I am trying to add new Intel graphics drivers to my image to support a new hardware platform however when I add the drivers to the image the post sysprep installation slows to a crawl and does not complete successfully. The installation appears to run as normal until approximately 35% when the graphics driver gets installed, this is noticeable as the screen flickers and the resolution changes, after this point the percentage will rise slowly for several hours even though installation without the graphics driver takes less than 10 minutes. When looking at the logs it appears that it has been searching for devices during this time and even if I leave it to complete devices do not appear to be installed correctly and subsequent installers fail to run.
Here are the drivers I am attempting to install: Intel HD Graphics (Windows 7 32 bit zipped)
I have tried installing them by putting them Out-of-Box Drivers and by running the setup before running sysprep; both ways lead to the result above.
Does anyone have any suggestions what might be going wrong or which of the log files would give me more information about device/driver installation?

What is the make and model of the mother board? What processor is on the board?
Do you have .NET in the image?
Did you run and import the TAP resutls into the answer file to pull in the the non-core inbox drivers?

The image includes .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 (both full and client profiles) and .NET 4.0 is installed by a synchronous command in the Specialize phase.
Tap was run on a Windows 7 (non-embedded) install that had the graphics drivers installed and imported into the answer file.
If I don't include the graphics drivers in any way, the system installs successfully; with the graphics drivers it does not install.
Thanks for your help.

The following is an extract from the setupapi.dev.log in C:\Windows\inf, it shows the Graphics driver install then appears to timeout when installing the next but one driver. I am unsure how to interpret this log, I would be grateful if someone can have a look at this. I can provide other logs if they would be helpful.

I have something similar to this with a working WES7 64 bit image.
I did not use out-of-box drivers, I had $OEM$ Folders dump it on C and then ran the installer with a runsynchronous
The driver I used and have working is: 126.96.36.19922 Win7Vista_64_152254.zip
I did make a mistake of accidentally installing a more recent one, that completely screwed up my graphics performance.
the run synchronous command was done at P4 and was: C:\DRIVER\Win7Vista_64_152254\setup.exe -s
