Driver downloaded using Mac, install to Windows?

April 22, 2012 8:14:42 PM

I have a build coming in on 4/22/12 and I plan on pre-downloading the needed drivers and maybe an anit-virus system on a USB before it comes in, so that I can have all of that ready to add onto my computer without having to connect to the internet. I would rather do it like this, so I can be as safe as possible when I have no real firewall on my PC.

I have a laptop I can easily download the drivers from, but I get the feeling that it already has viruses, and I would hate for them to piggyback onto the downloads and then make it back onto my new clean build.

So I was wondering if you could download and save a driver or anti-virus software on a USB using a Mac, and still be able to re-download and install the same drivers onto a PC using Windows 7.
