I generally don't use the drivers that came on CD. They are outdated most of the time. Go the web site and download current drivers and put on flash drive. As for the order, there really isn't one. Install the OS and then drivers.

Part 1.

First download the latest drivers so u are ready.

Install Windows -- Windows 7 Clean Install + Screens

Install mobo drivers and restart every time it prompt u to.

Install Win updates and restart every time it prompt u to.

Insert your licence code and Activate Windows at this time!

Do not forget to create a password reset disk, it takes only a minute.
