Silently and unattended install / upgrade Windows drivers

Upgrading Windows drivers tends to be troublesome and time consuming process. Here's little trick to make it easier.

Start by downloading suitable "SCCM" driver package from manufacturers site.

HP: http://ftp.hp.com/pub/caps-softpaq/cmit/HP_Driverpack_Matrix_x64.html
Dell: http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/2065.dell-command-deploy-driver-packs-for-enterprise-client-os-deployment
Lenovo: https://support.lenovo.com/fi/fi/documents/ht074984

Unpack driver pack and this zip file to same folder. Linked zip contains dpinst with minimal config file and vbs to launch it with elevated rights and correct command line parameters. So run "Driver_Upgrade.vbs" and wait few minutes. Reboot. Done.
