You can not install the drivers prior to the os.

The drivers install into Windows so without first having Windows installed there is nothing for the drivers to work on.

thank you! it would be great if somehow the motherboard could accept
its drivers w/o windows. it would (maybe) save some time if there are
problems with the motherboard independent of the operating system.
but then, i'm not an engineer.

Many servers come with installation CDs that work this way. The CD loads the drivers into memory, prompts for the OS install disk and installs the drivers as the OS is installed. That's easier done on a server which has a fairly limited set of hardware choices compared with a consumer m/b. It's just a convenience and doesn't alter the end result.
