[#0005ff]You need to go to Control Panel>Folder Options>View Menu and tick to show hidden files and folders then untick Hide Protected Files and Folders. Then in My COmputer, navigate to C:\Windows and copy the folder inf to a memory stick. Go to C:\Windows\System32 and copy the folders Drivers and DRV_STORE to the same stick. If your system builder put a folder in the root of C:\ (Dell, HP etc.) copy that as well.

Remember where you found them and put them into the new system as soon as installation finished - before updating to Service Pack 3 - and restartg the system. It won;t make all the hardware work automatically but it will make putting the drivers into place more easy.
