Windows update and Device Drivers

Hi,

Few device drivers were installed by Windows Updates (see below) and I would like to install the same drivers on other PC which has no internet. So question is, is there a way I can download these from Internet and copy on USB stick and install on second system.? Or export from existing system or similar ... what is best practice?

@OSD-4642,

You can also search by using an exact name. Then it will give right drivers.

Intel - Net - 12.18.9.8

Intel - System 9/19/2017 - 11.7.0.1000

https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=11.7.0.1000

Intel System - 4/12/2017 14.28.47.630

Hi @OSD-4642,

Yes, you can download drivers from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

For example.

Intel -Net

Correct, but how do I know which one was installed for my system.
If I write Intel - System I received over thousand results, I mean how to narrow down to the ONLY one that was installed by Windows updates for me?

@osd-4624,

I think the best way is to download device drivers direct from the manufacturer's site.

Thanks for reply.
Actually, these drivers from Windows update were found "after" everything was fully patched and updated from vendor device management. In other words, it will NOT help, as windows founds and updates even all /everything from manufacturer was already installed and updated.

If you need help in the future to move drivers from one computer to another please open a new thread.
