making an Arch rescue USB

I'm interested in making a bootable arch USB. I have done this in the past, however, this time, I'd be interested in having GPU drivers for both Nvidia and AMD on it, and if possible, having the proprietary ones, and having the appropriate driver be used on boot based on hardware detection. Is this possible, if so, how? I was unable to find information on this on the wiki or previous forum articles, though I would be unsuprised if it is there.

Thanks for your help

What happens if you just install all the drivers you want and let X figure out which ones are needed?

I feel rather stupid for not trying that. I will do so and report back.

That's going to be tougher with the proprietary drivers, but it's dead simple with the open source drivers.

With the proprietary drivers, you'll run into opengl conflicts.
