Windows 10 can download and install all drivers by itself. Apparently, It sounds great. But the fact is that It wastes your time and sometimes creates a plethora of problems. Such as You have no control over adjusting brightness and no audio problem and on top of that When you manually try to install the required drivers, You get an error, this driver can’t be installed. I have gone through the same situation many times.
Aforementioned problems aside, After the clean install, Windows 10 uses the internet to download and install drivers and updates. Computer and the internet become very slow. It would be no exaggeration to say that Windows 10 requires a whole day to finish all the procedure.
