Permanently dismiss Driver Wizard

Specs: Windows XP
I have a system that does not have all of the drivers installed, but doesn't need them, it is being used very basically inside of a "machine vision" type system. When I boot, I, of course, get the slew of add new hardware wizards, and this is preventing the machine to behave as it should. In the past I have gone to device manager and disable the devices that were calling for drivers (ethernet and sound mostly), but oddly enough, on this particular machine I have my VGA adapter calling for drivers, though it is working just as I need it to as is. I dare not disable that, because a video interface is always a good thing, and I don't want to clone that SSD again. So I am asking if there is a way to, without disabling or connecting to internet, stop the add new device wizard from popping up at startup. Thank you!

Why don't you just install the drivers & be done with it?

If you're being prompted for VGA drivers, it means the ones you are currently using are the XP generic ones, not the drivers specific to your graphics card (or integrated graphics). Not only that, but they are at least 10 yrs old. And if you're not using the audio or ethernet/network, disable them in the BIOS, not in Device Manager.
