Windows XP Drivers - Location of OEM drivers

I have an image for an Asus Eee PC - 1005HA and now need to use this image on an Asus Eee PC - 1101HA.

I have a pre-sysprep image of the 1101HA machine so can presumably take drivers from this and place on my existing 1005HA image.

The question is - where do I find the drivers and what is the best method of moving the drivers?

Notes:-
I am not using sysprep fro my images
Currently Use Acronis with Uni Restore.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can try to do this by copying drivers from %WINDIR%\system32\drivers to the same loc in new image, but it's not guaranteed that that'll work. Best way is to download new drivers from webpage as OEM drivers do not have all needed drivers for new system afaik.

a lot of drivers or part of drivers are in %WINDIR%\system32\ as well.

The .inf file needed to install the device is in %WINDIR%\inf folder.
The required .dll files should be in %WINDIR%\system32
And the .sys files will be in %WINDIR%\system32\drivers

I recommend that 3 should be the answer.  All of the following answered the question correctly, or contributed to that answer.

http:#30105450 - as he supplemented the answer with pertinent information.
