I was wondering if anyone here was able to successfully create a sysprep image of Windows 8.1 that have all the required drivers stored on a local folder ex. C:\Drivers
It seems that the way that sysprep is installing the drivers with Windows 8.1 changed compared to Windows 7...
The unattend.xml drivers part does not seem to apply now...
I don't want to use MDT or SCCM ( i use Novell Zenworks to deploy OS images )

Windows 7 also had some sort of problem with the drivers installation but i was able to bypass it by adding an entry in the registry at the sysprep seal phase ( not before because the audit mode would install the drivers and we don't want that).
so we had to modify this DevicePath to add "C:\Drivers;%SystemRoot%\inf"
Thank you for your input !
