Actually, Windows 7 is plug and play. I'm not sure what version of 7 your friend has, but Microsoft built Win 7 as a plug and play OS. It's amazing how many drivers are included with 7. I'm wondering if there's something wrong with your friends install.

its not plug and play

Is your friend trigger happy when it comes to disabling services? Remember, you need the Plug and Play service running for devices to be detected.

But, like jmtjet says, there is no need for a list like that. Only older legacy hardware seems not to be installed automatically (or, at least, via Windows Update).
