Add Drivers

Guest

Hi, is it possible to add drivers to an XP image? Perhaps mount the WIM,
copy the driver inf files (to say C:\Drivers) and modify sysprep.inf
(OEMPnPDriversPath section)? Or will this only work before resealing the
machine with sysprep? If so, is it in any way possible to add drivers to an
XP image (after it was syspreped)?

Thanks!

This site has a great video tutorial for this and a tool for enumerating the
drivers you'll need.

Thank you Jerry, Rob, Tom for your response.

Tom, I think I saw that video ones, it basically describes how to add
drivers while building the image. I want to add drivers to am image (Wim)
after it was sysprepd -sealed.
