ok so my c drive is dodgy (clicking n freezing for minute or 2) ive backed up but i was wondering when i install win7 i dnt have to download drivers(exept graphics mouse and) all others are auto installed by windows i guess but what i wanted to know was if i installed on my othercomputer so icould keep this running untill i had everything setup on my new hdd it would probs auto install drivers for that one so if i then put that hdd into this computer would it auto install drivers for this or would i come across problems? because i really dnt want to not be able to use this as im a online gamer and practice for hours everyday.
thnx in advcance for ur help.

Install windows on the machine you want it to run on... not some other machine.

That would only work if it's the same exact system. Make a backup after it's all sorted out.
