There is a folder C:\SWTOOLS which has two folders in it; Drivers and Apps. If you burn it to DVD or copy it somewhere you will have all the pre-installed drivers and apps from the factory install.

 

Burn a set of recovery disks beforehand as well, just in case, but also to ensure you can get the system back to factory should you need to.

 

Hope this helps

Andy
