Storage drivers in XP image

When capturing an image, it’s always a good idea to add needed storage drivers to the [SysprepMassStorage] section of your Sysprep.inf before capturing.

The two most common Mass Storage Drivers are the :

Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver (IaStore.sys)

and

Dell SAS 5x and SAS 6x Controller Driver (symmpi.sys)

 

In Sysprep.inf add the following lines…

================insert into sysprep.inf========================

[Sysprep]
BuildMassStorageSection = No

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_282A&CC_0104=C:\drivers\sata\iaStor.INF

=======================================================

Now place the Storage driver in the corresponding folders: INTEL in C:\drivers\SATA and DELL SAS in C:\drivers\SAS

Sysprep and capture the image. You should now be able to deploy images to most PC models out there.

 

If you do an automatic “build and capture” task sequence with SCCM just place the sysprep.inf file in your Sysprep package, and make sure to copy the storage drivers to C:\drivers\SAS and C:\Drivers\SATA (either with a a script, or using $OEM$ in the Windows source)
