    This may be an easier solution

    Install a freeware tool DriverMax

    You can start the tool and select the following Driver Operations
    • Installed Drivers Report (get a detailed list of all the drivers being used)
    • Export Drivers (export all your drivers to a folder or compressed file)
    • Import Drivers (after a new installation just import your drivers)

    One warning: The "Check for Driver Updates" section is not 100% accurate. You can checkout the new version it lists but note it's not necessarily correct for your environment
