    lets say before installing a new os, i could had backup the drivers correct? using XXXX software

    then i could had installed the new OS---- and then recovering then from the backup i had performed


    but this would only worked if the previous OS was the same as the newly installed OS or compatible with the old OS.

    example:

    XP pro (old)---> XP pro (new)

    or

    XP home (old)-----> XP pro(new)


    Would this still work if the previous XP was XP pro sp2 and the new OS is XP pro SP3?

    You do not get specific drivers for XP versions XP drivers work with all versions of XP only XP 64bit is different.
