Go to the motherboard manufacturer's web site, search for drivers for the version motherboard your friend has. Then download the drivers's for the operating system your friend will use. That's pretty standard practice.

Ah, it sounds like this is more than where to find the drivers for a motherboard. When I made my computer I posted the configuration on this website to get feedback how the components would work together. Then, followed the advice.

Since it was a new installation I did need the BIOS, audio, VGA, LAN etc and downloaded them and installed.

I suspect that would be a good way for your friend to proceed, post the components and see what feedback is received. It could be a different motherboard, or components, might be more appropriate. I'm not an expert at this, just used to finding the drivers and other software for my configuration at the ASUS site.

I would also suggest youtube and other similar sites can be very useful seeing how others do it, and the steps involved.

Wish I could provide more help.
