When are hardware drivers loaded?
Posted on 2011-03-11
When windows is installed a fresh copy, Microsoft includes generic device drivers for all the hardware attached to the motherboard?
For example I did a fresh install of windows but prior to that where you "Press any key to boot from CD" I used my Logitech Wireless Keyboard to do so. Also, my mouse was able to move around in the windows setup environment.
When are drivers for internal and external devices loaded?
Sorry if the question is not very clear, just looking for some clarification on this/how windows drivers work.
