Install drivers on which partition?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I got my new computer setup with XP installed and currently formatting my non OS partition.

When it comes to things like Nvidia drivers, where do I install them? On the C: drive where the OS is located or on the E: where all my program files and the like will be installed?

Cheers!

Hmm, I would put them on your Windows partition because when you need to format your Storage partition, the drivers will go with it. Aso, when you re reinstall Windows, you need to install the drivers again, right?

Install them on your C: or OS drive.

When you go to install them it Will automatically detect the drive where the OS is situated so no problems there. If you are ever asked where to install them always install then onto the drive with the OS on.
