Determining PCI Vendor ID and Device ID

Last updated on July 4th, 2015 at 12:17 am

In working with LTSP and K12LTSP I use some old hardware as dumb terminals. Some of this old gear presents problems in determining the correct NIC driver or graphics driver to use.

If the old machine still has windows on it I use Craig?s PCI Programs to determine the Vendor ID and Device ID. I then go to PCI Database and look up the vendor ID/device ID pair. This works best for video drivers.

Alternatively I look up the Etherboot database to determine the best network driver.
