    Hi

    Is it possible to make lets say 20 nic drivers available for automatic install/detect without the hardware being present?

    To make things extreme for simulation, I'll use the very latest 10G gigabit nics or 100 gigabit nics as an example. Since there aren't any microsoft built in drivers for them, how can I make the drivers automatically available once the hardware becomes present upon initial boot up? (such that, it finds an unknown device and searches the right default path for the driver automatically)
