They should be there someplace, but apparently your choice of drivers
only hits the ones it can use. Finding a full list, printing it, and
taping it to the wall is something I've done in the distant past. Might
be helpfull here in the longer view. Might have to do a bare bones boot
to find them, possibly as another just created user.
