Windows 7: Can I select which drivers to load each time?

Can I select which drivers to load each time?

First of all thats a great forum you have here and it was very helpful for me sometimes. Well, I am an old notebook user and an eGPU user.

I would like to use a specific driver but when I don't have my eGPU connected the driver causes BSODs. Is it possible to have to bootup options one with the driver loaded and one without. I googled about that a lot but I wouldn't find anything. I even willing to upgrade to windows 7 Ultimate if it won't work on Home Premium

I thought that this is the specific place to ask things like that and I hope that you would help me.

Thanks for your answers in advance

Hi timohour and welcome to SF!
The only way I can think of right now would be this:
Go in your start box and type services.msc run it as administrator,
scroll down the list of drivers until you find the one in question, right click it go to properties and set
Startup Type from Automatic to Manual
That way windows can load the driver whenever it's needed.
