Hey mark1995n, thanks - but let me clarify my thought process. The reason I want to leave those drivers out of the equation is because I want to setup everything - make an image, and after that's completed, proceed with the driver installs. This way, when the drivers get updated later on, I simply revert back to the image without the drivers, install the new ones, and then make a new image. I know this seems a bit extreme, but honestly it's not a big deal to pull off - I just want to know if modern programs still depend on the drivers to install correctly. Of course I won't use those programs until the drivers are present.
