I'll leave it to Microsoft to explain what a HardwareID is and how it relates to Drivers

When looking in my Device Manager at my Video Card (Intel UHD Graphics 630), the HardwareID of the device is PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3E9B

This translates to the following:

  • The Video Card is on my PCI Bus

  • The Manufacturer of the Video Card is VEN_8086, which is Intel

  • The unique Id of the Device is 3E9B

This means that every computer that has a DeviceID of PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3E9B should have the same exact Intel UHD Graphics 630 Video Card

Driver INF

Looking into the Driver INF, there is a match for PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3E9B. This means that if I have this DeviceID, the Driver will install
