RFA : External USB boot - multi laptop

Objective : Install Linux of an external USD HD, and use with any laptop.

Accomplished :
a) Installed Fedora 20
b) Verified it boots on multiple laptops
c) Enabled XFCE

Question : How can the installation be made intelligent to dynamically sense the video card type and load the related driver ?

After it is plugged into the system and running, just run update and it should find the driver itself, in theory at least.
