  • Most drivers will be installed while upgrading.  There may be one or two that need to be manually updated.  We have no way of knowing.

  • Hi,

    About your question, my answer is No.

    Drivers would be installed automatically during upgrade process, we couldn’t interfere them.

    Maybe some drivers are incompatible with Windows 8, those drivers need to be changed into a newer version after upgrade.

    After upgrade, you could go to Device Manager to see which device works abnormally, download and install drivers from your PC’s manufacturer website, according to current system version.

    Hope my clarification is clear.
