Don't forget to let us know how you get on.

You say you just want a clean install and Internet - if you're going online then you will also need an antivirus program.

I doubt if the install USB will have your drivers so it mat be prudent to back them up onto an USB.

They can be found at C:/Windows/System32 where you can drag and drop them onto an USB and then drag and drop them back into System32 after the install.

There could be three folders for the drivers.

So it's completely safe to switch drivers from the former install like this? I thought you should always get new driver installs as well.

It depends upon whether the adapters are there for drivers to install.

You would need to Ethernet connect and some may come in through Windows updates, but I've seen where it's advised to back them up even when just doing a repair install as the install media won't have them.

See how you go with the clean install and at least if you do back them up, you will have a fall back should you need them.
