There are lots of softwares/drivers to install or update when first building a new computer...which do you guys do first and last?
Whats a good order to do for the following...
-Install virus and firewall
-Install Motherboard software
-Update Motherboard drivers
-Install video card driver
-And...anything I missed.
If you do that, the firewall will complain or crash due to the lack of a network card.
My order: BIOS update on floppy, Windows, Service Packs, drivers, security software, Windows updates, all other software
There's no point in continuing if bios update fails. I'm sure most households have more than 1 computer. That or you get the bios to floppy & read the pdf manual in advance.
