Dual Booting Windows 10 and Windows 7 drivers question

Hey Guys,
I just built this Computer and I installed Windows 10 on it. I wanted to play a game on it so I wanted to install windows 7 on the hard drive too. And know when the installation finished, none of my drivers from the other os didn't copy to this os. So would I have to re-install the Mobo drivers and my graphics card drivers?

As far as I know you have to install drivers for each OS

You built a Dell computer ?
That's what your system spec's page says
Could you update them if you still have the Dell just add the new one to the Other info section.
But yea drivers do need to be installed again.
