    ICH8 2 port and 4 port SATA controllers 2820 and 2825


      I have a hardware independent image that I am trying to deploy on an HP dc5700 desktop.  I need to find SATA drivers for the deployment.  So far, I have only found drivers embedded in the chipset installation for the motherboard.  However, this does not provide me with all of the files I want.  The chipset only gives me the .inf and the .cat.  I want the iaAHCI.cat, iaAHCI.inf, iaStor.cat, iaStor.inf, iaStor.sys, and TXTSETUP.OEM file.  For some reason, the SATA driver roll-up from Intel does not work for the hardware independent deployment even though it works with Windows PE.  I have not had this problem with other models.  That SATA controller seems to be a little unique on this computer model.


      In device manager, the names of the controllers appear as below:

      Intel® ICH8 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller – 2825

      Intel® ICH8 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller – 2820


      The hardware ID’s are as below:
