PCI Simple Comm & PCI Serial Port - drivers

I just reinstalled my operating system and wanted to know if I really need to install the following drivers:

- PCI Simple Communications Controller

- PCI Serial Port

I know it installs AMT, but since I'm a home user and I don't use it. Can I forgo installing the drivers and just disable them in the Device Manager? Will it affect my PC's ability to function correctly? If yes, what can be affected by not installing the drivers?

It looks like your Home PC is based on Intel® vPro™ Technology which includes Intel® AMT and other technologies as well - anyway it is not "typical" home PC.
