External harddrives are just IDE/Sate drives that are in a casing with USB 2.0

So every PC that has USB 2.0 can read it.

Yes it will still work fine. The bundled software does nothing at all for the drivers as the computer doesn't access anything inside the hard drive until the drivers are installed. Therefore, the drivers can't be on the hard drive and hence nothing on the hard drive will affect driver performance.
