    Hi I am installing win7 ultimate on a new hard drive and was wondering if anyone knows if there bis a way of using existing
    drivers from my old hard drive that will work on the new drive ie: same machine , same type of hard drive and same operating system this would save me a ton of time looking on the internet and downloading I do not have a recovery disk or access to the old drivers


    Thanks

    As long as you can boot your computer with the old drive you can install DriverMax and create an extract of the drivers.

    NOTE: If you are changing from 32-bit to 64, you will still need to get the 64-bit driver version for most of them.
