You would first need to clean everything up as far as existing drivers since removing them ahead of time will also remove the registry entries pointing to them.
For long term use don't bother trying to see that pre-existing install activated unless that will become your main system to start with like an upgrade into newer hardwares. That's where a clean install would be what comes to mind right from the start.
For a quick look not a problem. I tossed a quick temp install on one case here lately to find out what would work and had some interesting results for the old boat anchor!
