In this article at the end it mentions:
For adding storage device drivers such as SATA, SCSI, and IDE drivers,
the \i386\txtsetup.sif contained in the image must be updated with the
deviceid of the hardware.
Are these steps still required on 8.7 SP3 or post SP3 (SP4, SP5) ?
If so where I can get the DeviceID information? Do I have to install Windows XP on the same model of machine and get this from the device manager | detail tab?
Yes it is still requires by Microsoft. Drivers must be available to Windows. Here are two good links explaining this in detail, but the information relating to the driver, can be found in the TXTSETUP.OEM included with your driver files.
Windows 64 but a good explanation
Thanks a lot. I will check the two links.
