If you saved the drivers before you installed them, just copy those files. If you installed them by selecting RUN then you're going to have to pop online and get them again.

Motherboard drivers. There should have been a disc that came with the board. If not you can get the latest version from the board maker's site. Download those and save them to a thumb drive.
As for snagging them from the system I don't think it's possible. The OS is going to have generic drivers to get you going.
