    I want to integrate drivers with Windows 7 ISO using RT7 Lite, but looks like some of them are missing .inf files.
    I can't find those in any folders of drivers' packages, nor in their executable files. What should I do in this situation?

    Run the installer. Once installed copy out the drivers...

    I couldn't afford installing said drivers.

    However, I did this accidentally when trying to find their temporary folder during installation process (I guess it was Windows/Temp, which I could not access btw). And still, it seems there aren't any .inf files in installed drivers' destination.

    Why don't you post a link to the mentioned drivers?

    You can always scramble the URL to bypass the limit.

    Indeed, the site is still down, sadly.
