Windows NT 4.0 Device Manager

Hello,

I have a Windows NT 4.0 computer.  I am trying to find the screen that will show me SCSI, RAID or SATA controller information so I can get some drivers.  I am looking for the same sceen that I would get on an XP computer in "Control Panel" - "System" - "Hardware" - "Device Manager".

I can not find that information on NT 4.0.
Thanks for your help.

There's no real "Device Manager" in NT4. You can go to Control Panel -> Devices, but that will only tell you which of the device drivers are currently working.
You can find the core driver used by going to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<ServiceName> (search for the display name from the Devices if in doubt), then look for the REG_SZ value "Imagepath".

Where is HKLM?  Is it a windows navigation or do I go to the command prompt?  I agree that control Panel -> Devices does not tell you much.  

Thanks

Hi,
Thank you very much for your help.
I have looked at a Windows XP computer and the Windows NT computer.  I have attached 2 screen prints from XP and 2 for NT.  I am trying to determine if I am looking at the correct file.  XP seems to spell it out a lot clearer that NT.  NT doesn't really give a controller like XP does.

From what you can tell, am I looking in the right direction?

Again, thanks alot for all  of your help and patience.

Yes, that should be correct.
Note that you can paste, edit and save screen shots using Paint (under Accessories); no need to use a proprietary format.
