Can I system search before prerequisites?

I would like to perform a system search before installing prerequisites that are marked to install before the feature selections. Is this possible? I would use custom actions, but I don't think you can launch custom actions before prerequisites are installed because CA's are part of the msi file and prereqs get launched from the setup.exe, correct?

Thank you for your help.

I think we can't launch custom actions before prerequisites. In my requirement also I need same feature. But I didn't find the provision to implement this

If you are using Basic MSI project type, then you may consider using feature prerequisites. In this case, the system search action will happen before the installation of prerequisites.
