How can I extract drivers from a Windows 7 Recovery Disc?
Question by Douglas Mutay /

One of my friend called me to help him install Windows 7 on his HP Pavilion Elite desktop PC. He had Windows 8 Consumer Preview and wanted to revert to his original Windows 7.

At the end of the install we discovered that a lot of drivers were not installed (graphic and network). His DVD recovery disk only offers one option: clean install of the OS with a complete wipe of the HDD. He has more than 1TB of data and we can’t just use that option.

Is there any way we could just extract drivers from the recovery disk? Without having to go to the internet and download them from HP?
Thanks for your answers.
