    Related to this I often extract driver packages before a reinstall using DISM. On a system that is fully updated you can get all installed driver packages with this command (path is arbitrary, pick any folder you want):

    dism /online /export-driver /destination:C:\drivers

    You can integrate the extracted drivers directly into a fresh install image to start with all drivers in place on your first boot. A lot of us do a trial install on new builds, this is a good way to get more out of those trial installs.

    @nosirrahx You are Exporting Drivers not Extracting them.

    If you are burning an install just to get access to them, what's the difference.
