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:
