Found new hardware wizard and driver installation

For new pnp devices why does the OS postpone driver installation until
user logs on eventhough if it finds the device at boot time. Assume that
the inf and driver files are present before the boot started.

Thanks,
Giri.

Any installation which does not show any UI (“server-side install”) is done
even without a logged on administrator.
But, if the installation wants some UI, it require the physical presense of
the user with administrative rights to do it.
