I need to install Intel chipset drivers via a script file in a silent
unattended mode. The file starts the installation and stops with a warning
dialog stating “ The software you are installing for this hardware: (Hardware
device name) has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility
with Windows XP.�
Driver signing is set to Ignore on the local machine, both local and domain
have a silent allow driver signing policy. The installer uses the switches
–s (for silent) and –OVER ALL (to update ALL INF drivers even if third party
drivers are currently installed).
This dialog appears with both the Dell drivers and the Intel supplied drivers.
The driver should install silently with no UI or dialog popups. Can anyone
help with a workaround to bypass the Windows Logo dialog

Driver Signing Registry Values Cannot Be Modified Directly in Windows

Driver Signing Policy Is Automatically Elevated for Unsigned Drivers

According to the above, it can only be done during unattended setup, but take a look at this:

How to Add OEM Plug and Play Drivers to Windows XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314479/EN-US/?FR=1

The "Existing Windows installations" seems to address your problem.

Other than that, some kludge with 'appactivate()' and 'sendkeys()' for the security dialog seems to be about all there is.

Unfortunately this will not help in this situation. The script I am
attempting installs different drivers based upon input form the user at first
boot. Ultimately the only user input will determining partitions and
choosing the driver set for each machine.
Thanks for your help.
