Microsoft does not do driver development, they get them from the hardware manufacturer. The better location to get your drivers is from the pc manufacturer's web site.

but how many different drivers do you need to start the setup process so it can download windows? and are there any tools that will help you do that?

The only driver you might need pre-windows-setup would be the disk controller driver. Immediately post-windows-setup you'll want the pc or mobo manufacturer's chipset. The chipset allows the operating system to find and use devices integrated into the mother board.
