Drivers

Postby Psychopomp » Mon Jul 27, 2009 3:54 pm

I would like to know if it is possible to copy all the drivers found in vista's device manager to another hard drive in another computer and replace the existing drivers.

Run: msinfo32
from the start menu click Software Environment, it will show you where all of the drivers are located.

You should be able to copy paste them from their various locations.

Do you have two computers that are identical OS, hardware, everything? Not sure why you would want to do this. Even if you copy the drivers over, you cannot be assured that registry entries will not be affected that otherwise should be. I can see this becoming quite the mess without running an 'installation' process.

Just make sure you backup your systems.
