Windows 7: How to install drivers?

How to install drivers?

I'm unable to boot anything other than the HDD with the laptop I'm installing on. There's no disc drive, and BIOS is unable to find any USBs. Given this, I removed the HDD, put it in my computer, and installed windows 7 from there. However this also means that the drivers for the laptop were not installed, and thus when I try to boot windows 7 from the laptop, I get instant BSOD + restart.
How do I go about installing the drivers?

You'll need to SysPrep the HD in the machine it was installed upon, which will remove all drivers, activation and hardware ID's. Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

Then when you move it to the new machine it will start up to install all drivers, requiring several restarts.
