Wow, so it's only a "driver disk" in a sort of analogical sense;
that's a pretty good justification for giving it a name of its own.
"Driver injection" is jargon, but at least it's likely to be what
the accompanying hardware docs call it.

Latest attempt:

 _Description: Load drivers from internal "drivers disk"?
  Installing on this hardware may require some drivers provided by the
  manufacturer to be loaded from the built-in driver injection disk.
