I'd expect the answer to be D.

A, C are clearly incorrect.
D can occur.
If there is a driver conflict, Windows will probbaly still boot
normally, but one or the other of the devices with conflicting drivers
will end up disabled.

However, the version of Windows should have been stated.

Write this one off to another lousy question.
