Default how do i find drivers for an entire pc

ok so i recently bought 2 good pc's both are build but neither hard drive is formatted or has an os. i have 1 copy of windows xp from my old pc and 1 copy of windows server 2008 from another. now after instaling both operating systems is there some sort of software i can download and instal like a driver detection or something wich will tell me all the drivers i need to have a functioning pc? id like to have them both done by this week end. this is something new to me as usualy i have driver disks and such or know the parts in them. one is a shuttle pc wich will be easier to get drivers for the other is an hp slimline.

Go to HP for the slimline, you'll need the product name and/or number and you may need the serial#.

I'd give Driver Robot a try.

I have hits and misses with it, though.
