Installing Operating System and Drivers from another computer?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Grandpas HD crashed so I bought him a new one. I have installed an operating system on it from my computer. Can I look up his computer type and somehow directly install the drivers to it from my computer?

If so can I do this while running off of my HD and operating system and just do it paste the drivers to his HD or is it going to be more complicated than that?

You have a few options:

1) place the install files on the desktop, install HD into his computer, install drivers

2) Burn to a cd/dvd

3) USB drive
