Trying to install drivers on virtual computer

Hey guys,
I am building an image for my computer, in VMWare workstation, and i cant get the drivers installed, because it says that the hardware can not be found, wich makes sence because it is not present in the virtual machine.
is there a way i can install the drivers with out the hardware being present.

See my system details, for my computer

You can but it's not easy. You have to write your own script for PowerShell.
