That is a very good question. More than likely you will need to reinstall them seperately as it is wireless technology but windows checks for hardware and sometimes installs either the manufacture's driver that was out at the time the disc was made or a generic type driver that will interact and work with all kinds of similar hardware...

For the best results go into device manager and copy the hardware name and model number of what you have installed and then locate the up to date drivers for each one and burn the driver installer to a disc for installing after the operating system has been re-installed. That would cover all the mobo drivers and other hardware drivers that work on your computer.
