Injecting Emulex Lpe1205 BFS drivers into Windows 2008 x64 distribution for RDP

Steve was looking for some advice on how to use RDP to load in some new adapter drivers:

 

**********************************************************************************************************

Windows 2008 x64 SP2 Media

BL460 G6

Emulex Lpe1205 8gb

 

Apparently, I had to load Emulex BFS drivers while installing the Windows 2008 X64 SP2 OS on a BL460 G6 with the Emulex LP1205 for it to see the LUN to install the OS.  Anyone know of a procedure where I can inject the Emulex  BFS drivers in the RDP scripted OS install so they get loaded during a deployment? Is it a matter of copying the drivers somewhere to a directory in the RDP server?

Brad gave Steve some advice:

One technique, albeit probably not the ideal, is to create a slipstreamed OS install (think nLite) that incorporates desired various drivers and then using that ISO as your W2K8 source for RDP.

Any other advice for Steve? Have you used a different method to do this?
