    Hello poysanity,

    I'm afraid so. A reset is basically like a clean install.

    Dear Poysanity:
    Take some heart from my personal observation that Windows 10 is very good at recognizing and finding drivers on its own, during and after initial installation. So far, I have installed Win10 on a dozen different hardware platforms. The OS shows a better than 90 percent record overall in finding and supplying up-to-date drivers on its own without human intervention. The only drivers I've had to supply manually have been some related to the Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI), a Serial-on-LAN driver related to MEI, and a Synaptics SMBus Driver related to Synaptics touchpads in my Dell Venue Pro 11, both of my Lenovo laptops (X220T and T520), and the Surface Pro 3. By and large, you will find that most drivers are handled quite well by the OS, with far less intervention and research/replacement required following OS install or reset, than with most other Windows desktop OSes (including XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 8.1 in recent memory).
