Preferred Solution: In what order do i install windows 10

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone!

I've bought a TOSHIBA Satellite C855-2CF *(PSKCAE-09K006HU).
It's without previously installed OS. I want to install a Win 7 but till now without success.

I've found some related topics already, which says I have to get in the BIOS and switch to CMS boot from UEFI, and an other what says I have to turn off Secure boot, but I can't find these options in the BIOS.

Where should I find them? Or is there something I should do additionally/ before I access the BIOS?

Thank you in advance for your support!

Hi all...

I've done tons of clean installs of Windows 7 x64, and finally am upgrading my (oldish) Thinkpad T400 (from XP Pro).

I did a clean install of Windows 7 x64 from Microsoft installation media (this is pre-SP1). Worked fine.

Then installed all the Thinkpad drivers and software, which also went well.

When it came time to install all the Microsoft updates, I let the update process pick all the updates to be applied (some were not checked, as I've noticed happens lately), and let it do its thing. I started Microsoft Update over and over during this process to get the latest updates, as one would hope.

The thing that was weird about it this time is, Microsoft Update failed on several occasions (about 3 or 4 update cycles) on a total of about 10 or 12 updates. Some of these look like the updates being applied by Microsoft Update in the wrong order (eg. SP1-dependent updates being applied before SP1 was installed, Internet Explorer 8 updates being applied after Internet Explorer 9 had already been installed, etc.).

Eventually it seemed to settle down, and stopped suggesting any more updates.

My question is : Should I trust that all the updates went as they should? Since the update process failed several times, I don't quite trust that Microsoft Update always does things the right way. Some folks have said I should install SP1 before any other update. Others have said SP1 might depend on some previous updates. Others say it might CONFLICT with some previo... Read more

Answer:Proper order for clean install of Windows 7 x64 up to SP1 and beyond?

I would have installed using the latest official installer ISO with SP1, available in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. This saves hours of updating and confusion.

I'd also follow the Best Practices in the tutorial since you apparently installed a bunch of drivers before doing your Windows Updates which is how Win7 provides the latest drivers it wants being the first driver-complete OS.

As to the Updates shuffling, it can happen and normally sorts itself out. But you save hours of updating and have a much smoother course if you use the latest installer with SP1.

You can trust all Updates, set to Automatic, since failures resulting in serious problems are better than one in a million.

Answer:What Is The Proper Order To Install "Drivers" During Fresh Windows 7-10 Install?

First step use the media creation tool to make a USB upgrade copy of 10 instalation. For your initial Win7 install just a fresh installation of Windows 7 SP1 and LAN drivers then activate no need to install any other updates or drivers. Once you are sure it's activated then run the USB install you made earlier. The installation and subsequent updates should take care of everything else. If not then you can install any drivers it misses.

Wondering if there are any sites or recommendations you folks would have regarding the correct install order of Windows Updates, for 98 and XP. I would also like to be able to download all of those updates for safe-keeping on a USB hard drive which I could take to clients on repairs. What are your recommendations? I seem to find no clear-cut information on how to install these, and in what order, and which ones are THE most-important to install in order to not get hacked while online. The dumb thing I did the other day was reinstall XP on a customer's computer, and XP didn't discover his NIC properly. Used a modem to access the 'net to get the driver, and would you believe, in that amount of time, his comp was infected with the Welchia virus. So you can see my quandry...

I recently bought my first Toshiba laptop and after a few tries with W8, I would like to downgrade it to the previous version, of which I own a valid license of the Pro edition.

I checked which wlan card i had installed (my "PC Information" is below) and downloaded all 44 files available from support.

I updated the bios to 6.50, loaded the default values, changed the "secure boot" to disable and also changed the "boot mode" to csm boot. This allowed me to install W7.

I start installing the drivers: chipset, Intel display driver, Intel Management Engine Interface, Rapid Storage Technology Driver and some more and that's when things start to get ugly - some drivers aren't supported by W7, the nvidia drivers don't recognize the video card, upon reboot after installing some of the drivers windows starts to complain and tries to repair things. A mess.

Did I mess the order of the installs? If so, can anyone post the correct procedure? There are 44 files, some with names like "Toshiba System Driver", "Registry Patch"... I don't know when to install these, plus some of the other files don't have an accurate description.

If W7 can not run correctly on this machine I will have to upgrade it W8 Pro (as I need remote desktop), and again will have to install all drivers, so the correct order to install the drivers and utilities is still very much needed.

Thanks in advance for any helpful input.

For removing windows 8.1 operating system, and in order to install windows 7..
you can follow most resouces online for removing windows 8 (not 8.1) because the largest diverence is in how to access the correct BIOS options as "the menu options have changed".

While in the BIOS Boot menu, you want to change the "Boot Mode" to "Legacy Support" and change the "Boot Priority" to "Legacy First". This will let you bypas the windows 8.1 hardrive boot, and use the cd-rom windows 7 disk instead. I've spent hours tonight figuring how to remove windows 8.1. This was the solution for me. What a pain MS created with with windows 8.1

Answer:how to uninstall windows 8.1 in order to install windows 7

Quote:
While in the BIOS Boot menu


But not all BIOSes are the same, different brands implement them as they wish.

My solution to changing to a different OS is to boot to a GPARTED CD, delete all the partitions on the HDD which then gives the desired OS a clean drive for installing. The underlying issue is that one can't simply delete an OS and cannot use an OS it is booted for formatting the HDD, won't allow itself to be killed, which is why a different approach is needed.

If you got the computer with Win7 then upgraded to Win8/8.1 you might be able to use the Factory Restore to go back but be aware that almost anything you do can cause loss of installed programs and your data so be sure to back up your data to an External drive and get your program discs at hand for installation.

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:
For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:

Drivers in this order: mobo, video, sound, misc.

You are notified that there are updates available.
You can select a link to show you the "Select Updates you want to Install" list.
From there you can select which updates to install.

Is the list ordered by what needs to install first, then second, then third, etc?
Can I deselect all and select a number of them in order, at my discretion?

Due to a virus, I just reformatted C: and re-installed Win 7, so I have 107 updates. This took all day last time on my machine.
In Win XP I had to get out of everything for a windows update. Still true for Win 7?

I don't want the machine down all day, but I have pockets of time to let it update.
Of course, I won't know how long each takes to run, but at least it won't be down for hours at a time, hopefully.

Answer:Is the 'select updates to install' list in install order?

You can select or deselect to your hearts content.
Only those updates which will install without requiring other unselected updates will install.

My usual routine is to select updates in batches

#1 - Windows Security Updates
#2 - Other Windows updates
#3 - IE updates (go through IE9, update that, then install IE10, update that, then install IE 11)
#4 - .NET updates (these are usually the ones that cause most problems)
#5 anything else I missed

Keep doing each group until no more appear in that group (or you get a repeating fail) before proceeding to the ned

bullu

Answer:I want to install MSJVM in order to install Siebel

You'd do well to first find a version of Siebel which is built on top of a current, supported JVM.

The MSJVM was never supported by Sun - it was a Microsoft product. However, MS stopped updating it long ago, with the net result being that the msjvm is now substantially out-of-date both in terms of functionality, and more importantly security.

I'd find it almost impossible to believe that current versions of Siebel are still reliant on the MSJVM.


EDIT: By the way, it's considered bad form to knowingly cross-post the same question into multiple sections of the forum, especially those that have nothing to do with your issue.

I've had to repair install Windows 7 64 bit Pro (without SP1) due to unfixable persisting errors with certain updates. I now have about 95 or so updates ready to be installed, is there a way to prevent any errors from happening again? I tried to install 30 at once today but ended up getting an endless "shutdown" that I had to force the computer to turn off after about two hours. It then booted perfectly, some updates had failed to install, and I got a BSOD upon putting the laptop to sleep.

Order makes no difference, but I usually start with mobo drivers.

Ozi, welcome to the forum, go to this site, it has the drivers you need. I would install the Chipset drivers first and then Ethernet followed by the Intel graphics driver. Just downloading is not enough. After downloading you need to extract them and then install them. Each driver download page has instructions on how to install them. Hope this helps.

Answer:Installing XP- What order would you install?

I do,

1.Windows XP
2.Chipset (also IDE, ATA and Raid)
3.SP2 or SP3 (If its not slipped into Disc, use nLite)
4.Updates (Reboot and Update until there are no more)
5.Drivers (first CPU drivers and Optimizers, then Video and Audio)
6.DirectX
7.Programs

Best resolutes for me, personally. I have had trouble is I install programs before I do Windows Updates (serious problems).

i remember i asked this question long time ago and havent got a clear answer.

so browsing thru dell webpage i found this lil page that tells you the order in which to install drivers on dell computers and laptops.

id assume this would be true for all other computer systems...


heres the direct link to the page
Dell - Windows driver install order for desktops and laptops


and heres the contents
---------------------------
The following list is an overview of the correct order to install drivers on Dell desktops and portables. After reinstalling Microsoft? Windows?, follow the order listed when reinstalling drivers. It is recommended that you print this list for reference when installing drivers.

Note: Some devices may not function properly if the drivers are installed out of order.



1. Desktop System Software (DSS) or Notebook System Software (NSS) - A vital utility that provides critical updates and patches for the operating system. If you are reinstalling Windows or updating all drivers, it is important that this software be installed first. This is located under the System Utilities Category on the Drivers and Downloads page.


2. Chipset - Helps Windows control system board components and controllers. This is located under the Chipset Category on the Drivers and Downloads page.


3. Video Adapter - Enhances video performance. This is located under the Video Category on the Drivers and Downloads page.


4. Network Interface Card (NIC)... Read more

Answer:Driver install order

Well, since it says to, install the first driver first.
Then go and install the core drivers, such as the Chipset drivers. After that you can basically shove the rest on in any order.

The reason why you have to do that is some drivers will rely on other parts of the system software already being installed. If they aren't then you'll get failures. So on all systems what you're trying to do is install the most important drivers first, i.e any system drivers.

hope that helps a little

I ordered a corei7 system it will be here next week. I want to go over just the basics of setting everything up right, ive done this before many times maybe some of you have new suggestions or better/easier way of doing things, so here goes:

1)Install all the hardware, power on the system, make sure everything is running, no mobo codes.
2)Set up bios defaults, update to the most recent bios from the manufacturers site.
3)Enable AHCI mode in the bios then install Windows Vista on my Raptor150ADFD
4)Install all Windows updates
5)Install Chipset Drivers
6)Install Video Drivers
7)Install Audio Drivers
8)Connect backup/storage drives
9)Whatever else left over mouse/keyboard/ipod...

Note: Im going to have the Raptor150ADFD as os/boot drive and WD640AAKS as my gamedrive
Note: Does AHCI work with all sata? I believe my Raptor is sata 150 not sata 2
Note: How does this work with my sata DVD-RW?
 

Answer:Vista 64 Install Order

1) Set up the mobo and the BIOS, update if necessary (if you do, set it for Optimized defaults, then reboot after the update, do it again, reboot, then set all the options as you wish, including AHCI.

2) Install Windows.

3) Install chipset drivers.

4) Install storage drivers if necessary (like the Intel Storage Matrix) at this point.

5) Install your NIC driver if Windows doesn't have one for it by default, then hit Windows Update and grab everything you can, reboot if necessary and go back and hit it again, repeat, till it says there's absolutely nothing left for updates.

6) Now install the latest video driver if you want, as I prefer to get a system fully functional up to this point using only Windows Update drivers if they exist and then updating those to the latest ones direct from the manufacturer if they do exist.

7) Audio will most likely be covered by Windows Update but install the latest ones if necessary for additional functionality.

8) The rest of it, meaning applications, etc.

9) Image that sucker right then and there after a reboot and to make sure it's clean as a whistle and everything works.

10) Done.

Hello

I?ve checked Toshiba download page on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp and as i can see your machine is fully supported for Windows 7 32bit so you can find all necessary drivers, tools and utilities there.

Install order is as follow:

Windows 7 SP3
Infineon TPM Software Professional Package
Intel Chipset SW Installation Utility
Intel Management Engine Interface
Intel AMT Software
Intel Display Driver
NVIDIA Display Driver
Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver
Intel Rapid Start Technology Software
Realtek Audio Driver
Intel LAN Driver
Intel USB3.0 Driver
Realtek Card Reader
Intel Wireless LAN Driver
Intel Bluetooth Filter Driver

ALPS Pointing Device Driver
TOSHIBA Fingerprint Utility
O2Micro Smart Card Reader Driver
Intel Smart Connect Technology
TOSHIBA Value Added Package
Intel Wireless Display
Intel NFC Software kit
DTS Studio Sound 1
PatchFiles

If something is not listed there like Toshiba specific tools and utilities install them following this list.

I hope everything will be OK.

Hi, I just ordered a new build core i5 750( thanks to the peeps in Hardware for the help ), with Windows 7 . I havent built a system in about 3.5 years...am just curious and would kinda like an update on the install order of everything once I have it up and going and am installing Windows 7.

I know it used to make a difference what you installed in which order, so I assume it still does. I will be using 1 1TB HDD, ( proper formatting process with 7...any different than XP? Last OS I installed was XP )

So...Windows7, Mobo drivers, ATI drivers ...I am assuming Win 7 already has the latest DX11? Then updates..updates and updates...am I missing anything , or is anything in the wrong order? I have been out of the loop for a few years...I must be missing something..lol

Oh yeah...what should I download and run to test the system once I am up and running beside 3d mark? I see everyone using Memory test software , Any others?

Sorry for any dumb questions here..Just trying to get it right the first time...I like to do my homework before the fact
 

Answer:New Build: Proper Install Order, etc...

I don't think the order you installed drivers has meant anything since Windows 95/98, and even then, I don't ever remember it making a difference. Thing is, the OS is told to load a specific driver, so what order you install it on the system, before or after other drivers, should not make a difference, because you don't have a choice in what order the OS loads it on boot anyways.

As a good rule of thumb, which may not make any difference at all but I do it anyways, I like to install Windows and fully patch the drivers/OS, then defrag it, then install programs. That way I'm sure the OS files are at the edge of the hard drive (fastest part of the disk). The truth of the matter is with the drivers is that the provided drivers for most items are actually probably some of the better drivers you can get. If you check device manager and everything is installed, which with Vista/7 it should be, or at least most of it, I wouldn't update them, except for GPU of course since so many bugs are fixed. Otherwise, if your not having problems, stick with the default drivers. I've actually bench marked a fresh system with the default drivers, then reinstalled and used the most recent chipset/sata/sound/network drivers and bench marked again and it was slower. I repeated the test 2 times so I know it was not in error.

As for testing, I have no idea what you think you're going to gain by testing 3dmark. Being a synthetic benchmark the results really prove not... Read more

DOES ANYONE HAVE THE INSTALL ORDER OF DRIVERS / SOFTWARE FOR WINDOWS XP FOR TOSHIBA PORTEGE R830-10Q PLEASE?

Answer:Need WXP install order for Portege R830-10Q

You can use the installation order from other models, it will be very similar.

The most important one is the Chipset Utility, then Display, then Toshiba Common Modules.

Make sure you have Service Pack 3 installed first. The XP drivers should be available on the Toshiba site. Check the other countries if it's not available in your region.

Do a BIOS Update as well since it's a new model.

Hello,
I bought recently Qosmio E10 in Korea. The OS is Korean Win XP Home. I would like to change it, so I guess I have two options:
1. Get a restore CD in English. But I read that Toshiba has the strange rule not to give restore CD with different language. I wrote them, they don't answer for now.
2. Install Win XP Pro myself (I have only this license). The issue in this case is to be able to get all the drivers I need. I found good drivers on several locations:
On http://www.toshiba.co.kr, but I worry that these drivers are for Korean XP.
The other place is http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp
In this place, most of the drivers are for Media Center edition. There are drivers for XP Pro, but they are not so many and there is no install order. For example, there is no NVidia driver, while such driver is available for the media center. Maybe I can use Media center drivers on XP Pro?

So my question is: What drivers I have to use and and what order to get a proper working XP Pro. It would be nice to know where to download QosmioUI. I found the Linux player and I will install it, but I want also to have the player in Windows.

Answer:Win XP Pro drivers and install order for Qosmio E10

Hi

first of all - as far as I see it, MCE is just WinXP with additional functionality. Means that drivers for MCE also work with XP Pro or Home.

Download the install instruction for the E10 via the last link that you have mentioned (remember - the hotfixes are based on a WinXP SP1a. If You have WinXP with SP2 then you should disregard the hotfixes and maybe add the post SP2 hotfixes instead.)

Good luck!

Hello friends, Recently I have purchased an "AOpen CD/DVD Dual-layer burner" and cannot get the computer to recognize that it is there... My system is XP Pro 2, on a 2.8 GHz P4 with 1024gigs ddr memory.

On EIDE #1.blue) I have a Western Digital 80GB as master for C:\ and a slave drive D:\ the same make and size.
On EIDE #2.black) I have a brandname cd-burner as master. I tried to install the dvd burner here as a slave drive, then the other way around and made it master and the cd-burner slave, but it would not recognize both drives. (Is it because both drives are recognized as burners?)

What I'm asking... is there a better way to hook-up my drives? Should both HDD's be on one IDE cable, or one on each IDE, the burners each on a separate IDE too. Yes, I want to keep my cd-burner and have the dvd-burner too... I hope I haven't said too much and confused everyone, but I really need help with this confusion... "Leecho" (Wogster, old name).

Since that time it won’t boot the way it used to.

I get a “Press [F2] for the boot device selection menu.”

I press F2 and 90 seconds or more later the selection menu appears.

I select “Boot from internal HD” and the systems boots up.

If possible I want my computer to boot automatically to the built in hard drive. I like the option of booting to the other devices. I would like to keep the option open to press F2 at start up. However if I don’t press F2 I would like it to boot to the hard drive without my intervention in a short amount of time.

I know there must be a simple way to do this but I don’t know how to do this. Someone please help, I can’t afford to pay someone $ 50.00 to do this for me right now.

I am running Windows XP and want to install Windows 8.1 on my laptop, so I pre-ordered an 8.1 DVD on Oct 8. The next day I started an online chat with Microsoft to purchase a second copy for my desktop PC. She asked what OS I was using and when I replied Windows XP she said I would first have to order Windows 8 because 8.1 cannot be installed on an XP machine. I replied that I was going to format the hard drive so I could install 8.1 on a bare disk. I ended up cancelling the order and phoned Microsoft. He told me the same thing and said 8.1 "probably" would not install on a bare disk. So he convinced me to buy two DVDs of Windows 8 Pro because he said I will get the free upgrade to 8.1 on Oct 17.
Does anyone know if it is possible to install 8.1 on a bare disk. If so, that is what I would rather have done. It would be easier if I ever have to do a reinstallation to just use the 8.1 DVD instead of using an 8 DVD and then upgrading.

Answer:Was I dooped into buying 8 in order to install 8.1

Full versions of 8.1 will be available on Oct 18 and you should be able to pre order. MS probably have not trained their sales people as to what is going on. Check Amazon or Newegg for full versions. You can do a clean install with the Full Retail version.

I have just recently acquired a Satellite C850 PSCBWA-009L001 to work on and I am installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit , I need to know the correct order to install the drivers as I have had issues in the past with other Toshiba laptops not working correctly due to not installing the drivers in the right order.

Hey guys, I ordered all my hardware and will be putting together my system. This is what I picked up

Chaintech VNF4Ultra (Nforce 4 Ultra)
AMD Athlon64 3200+ Venice Core
connect3D Radeon X800XL pci-e
1 gig (2x512) PC3200 Corsair VS
Hitachi t7K250 160 gig SATAII HDD
OCZ Modstream 450

Now, I have WindowsXP (professional student copy) which I got through my University. I have read and decided I need to slipstream servicepack2 into WINXP, which I think I shouldn't have too much a problem with. I will be using a Single sata drive, with no raid. Will installing or booting to this drive be difficult? What about the whole F6 and floppy drivers? For some reason I remember my particular disk had issues booting from the CD drive. Can't remember though

It's been a while since I've installed XP but last time I remember hitting some Fx button and it allowed me to change the type of computer, I believe Standard PC is what I would select, this helps with irq issues?

Finally, once the OS is installed is this the proper order of installation files?
1) Windows XP OS w/ sp2
2) Windows Updates including newest DirectX
3) Motherboard chipset drivers
4) Videocard drivers
5) anything else
6) missing anything?

Also any issues regarding fresh and best installation techniques would be greatly appreciated, I've been out of this for awhile so I will probably overlook some things. Thanks!
 

Answer:building new system, best install methods and order?

What I do, and has never failed for me is:

Unplug myself from any kind of connection to the internet

Install Windows w/sp2 slipstreamed
Install M/B Drivers, Utilities etc
Install Antivirus/Firewall

THEN Update Antivirus/Firewall first, then update WIndows.
After that do what you please.

I need to get Internet Explorer 11 off my PC and return it to Internet Explorer 9. I cannot completely remove IE11 from my system in order to re-install IE9. Please help.

Answer:completely remove IE11 from Win 7 in order to re-install IE9

You don't need to re-install IE9 as Windows created a backup of it when you installed IE11. It will be restored when you uninstall IE11.Go into Control Panel > Programs & Features.Click "View installed updates".Scroll down to Windows Internet Explorer 11 (near bottom of list).Right-click on it & choose "Uninstall".When it's finished, restart Windows.

Hi there,So I'm getting ready to start from scratch with setting up my new replacement laptop. It's a Compaq V600TX with Windows XP Pro SP2 on it. And I want to make sure that I do it 100% correctly this time around, based on stuff I've learned on the board here and hopefully with your help on this thread! I've compiled a list below of the items and order in which I was planning on setting up the new laptop. It is followed by some specific questions. Please let me know what you think -- thanks!Please note: I normally use dial-up. However, when I download Windows Updates and my A/V program, etc., I will be using my friend's high-speed internet via Ethernet cable -- and he has a router. Starting with turning on the laptop and *not* being connected to the internet:1. Create Recovery Disks -- This might not be necessary, as it seems the new laptop came with XP Pro SP2 recovery discs?2. Turn off Microsoft Automatic Updates -- I'll do manual updates, as shown below. 3. Uninstall crap programs -- It comes with a bunch of games/junk and software trial versions (though not actually installed fully, I don't think). One of these is some Norton trial version.4. Run Norton Removal Tool -- Not sure if this is necessary (see question below)5. Connect to Internet6. Run Windows Updates from Start > All Programs link -- Install Windows Updates7.

Answer:How do I install Laptop drivers in the proper order

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. After you do a Clean Install of Windows run Windows updates .. Any Drivers that are missing after that you can get from the Lenovo website ... You will probably need very few .. Chipset Driver and because you have duel Graphics it would be best to get them too .. You will need the Function Key Software and Card Reader Driver .. And the USB 3 Driver .. You dont want all the Bloatware as that will only slow your Laptop down ..

When you format you HD then start installing windows 7 64 for ex in my case an asrock extreme6 which has intel chipset. What is the first order of business (and what if any tricks does one need to know when doing a clean install).

Obviously i try to get newest drivers, the video is the easiest but often the drivers on the MOBO CD are not the
newest. In my case i was able to get newer intel INF Driver the realtek and the USB intel driver and lan. For some reason the intel app that is supposed to help you ID and find updates is total garbage it has not worked once. More annoying is when you have dual versions as in dual manufacturers for USB and LAN in my case I have asrock extreme 6, though i chose to go with the intel lan to just make it easier still have yet to learn if it was the right choice and for some reason im unable to DL asmedia drivers (they dont seem to let you do it off their site and im weary of going off "the net", does anyone know of a site that has drivers and they are legit?)

This time once i get all the basics installed im making me a system image. Tired of having to start from scratch each time.

I will be building my first PC from scratch I am wondering what is the order to install things. My guess would be

#1 Set-up the BIOS
#2. Install OS
#3. Install mobo drivers

(Do dvd/cd-roms come with drivers to install?, also what about harddrives?)
 

Answer:Order to install drivers/software after building a PC?

typically the drivers for the Optical drives and HDDs are included in the OS and the BusMastering Drivers w\ the mobo drivers (chipset drivers) next would normally be the Video Card, and additional add in cards, followed by service packs and hotfixes, firewall, and security

my securty checklist
applications would be loaded previous to locking down about half that list, its unfortunately not broken out as to the computers role and includes steps only required in a server, and others that would prevent loading some software, there are links lower down to the sites that spell out exactly how to accomplish those steps
and from which you should be able to determine their applicability to your system.

however connect to the internet only after your behind a firewall and have your hotfixes in place

even a small window of exposure can result in someone harvesting your IP, or worse being compromised by an exploit

Ok, settled on a backup routine, but have some factors to consider before implementing. This is for a Samsung notebook with a 256 Gb SSD for C drive and 750Gb HDD for E drive. I also keep a 2Tb USB 3.0 external drive always hooked up via USB 3.0. Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

I also have a 2nd 2Tb ext USB 2.0 drive which I use for archiving, backups of backups, etc. I keep that in a fire safe when not archiving. I've also made copies of most precious data to DVD's and keep at my sisters house. Family pix, vids, legal docs, etc.

All I have installed now is Microsoft Security Essentials, some photo editing programs and lots of free utilities.

I have the movable folders from my user folder(everything but appdata) moved to my E drive.

I don't have games installed yet, but I plan on installing many, including Steam games where I'd like to use GameSave Manager with steam spreader.

Here's my plan, and it would be great to get some feedback as to whether it's a solid one, or if you see any issues with it. I'd also appreciate any input on the order in which to install these apps so that they work with each other in the best possible way:

1- Macrium Reflect Free to do weekly or bi-weekly images of my C drive(the o.s. drive).
2 - Freefilesync to do daily mirror of E drive (Data drive).

Answer:Backup Strategy-What order to install & any input!

Good you're thinking before jumping.
I'll just give some quick pointers to your "questions" bullets, and we'll see what happens.
1. Avoid any configuration that wants to image anything but you system drive. I wouldn't move any folder Windows installs to a different drive. Handle directing data separately. For instance, if you download movies, download them to your data drive using "save as." You can always just move data from the Windows folders elsewhere after the fact too.
2. It's best to have at least 2 images. Simple redundancy. If you follow my advice above, you can put the system image on the E and the external. Keep it straight in your head that the only system image is the C partition. Also that
you want to keep your system images small, because it will be much faster taking images, and restoring images, and you won't run into space issues. You won't like hearing this, but if you're making frequent images of a 256gb SSD, and you use the space on the SSD for ANYTHING but Windows, and that builds up you'll quickly run out of space for your system images.
All "used" space on that 256gb drive will be included in the image. So all data on there related and not related to the actual "system" gets imaged. Of course you can just not use the space for anything else, but that's a waste of hardware.
It would be better to partition the SSD so the Windows C: partition is smaller, then you could use the remaining partition of the S... Read more

I haven't given this much thought on builds I've done for my own use so far, but now I'm starting to build systems for other people & I'm putting more effort into making sure everything is done correctly and will remain stable as long as possible (especially under the care & feeding of a typical PC user).

I currently have a fresh build which has all the hardware installed and verified working properly, looking at a completely clean Windows 8.1 desktop. I also have prepared all the 3rd-party drivers and updates needed for the components (INF, GPU, etc).

What's the recommended order to proceed now, given all this stuff that needs doing to finish configuration and hand it off to the new owner?
Windows UpdatesWindows settings / personalization / configuration3rd-party drivers / updatesSoftware installs
And, is there a way to make sure Windows 8.1 won't auto-install its own choice of drivers? I've already obtained from the manufacturers the correct (compatible, stable) versions that the system should have on it.

(Desktop PC, custom build, Windows 8.1 64-bit ? if you need more details just ask ^^)

Answer:Best order to install everything on a clean Win8.1 system?

For me, i install the OS and just enough drivers to get device manager clean. I then run Windows update until complete. I then take an image and call it "plain vanilla". I then install my normal software using a combination of ninite.com and just the 3rd party installers. Once done, I take one more image.

I don't worry about replacing all Windows device drivers. I install the chipset and the SATA controllers for sure. I always install the audio and the video drivers. For everything else, I only install if the device manager shows a warning or something not working.

That's worked well for me at home, building computers for others and in my job setting up all workstations at our office.

I will replace the hard drive in my Satellite L35-S2161 next week. (I attempted this a couple of weeks ago but I could not get the wireless or the PowerSaver utility to work so I put the original hard drive back in, and everthing works)

So what drivers need to be installed and in what order. Also, there is no Toshiba Value Added Package listed in the Toshiba Support website for my L35 with Windows XP. So do I need the Toshiba Value Added Package (TVAP), if so where can I find it? I opened my Toshiba Restore Disk and folder COMPS1 contains all the drivers and utilities that I need. But there is no Toshiba Value Added Package (TVAP).

The only thing I can find in the restore disk is a folder named "Toshiba Utilities 1" and the Notepad in that folder says "+This package is for the Toshiba Utilities. It includes Hardware Setup and Power Save features, which can help you to customize your computer's hardware settings+.", Is this the Toshiba Value Added Package??

Yes I can use the restore disk, but I would like to use my retail XP Pro instead. So if anyone can help with the *correct driver/ utility install order*, it will be greatly appreciated

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Answer:Satellite L35-S2161 - OS and drivers install order needed

Hi

As I?m not mistaken, the Satellite L35-S2161 belongs to the Toshiba US series. All the drivers should be placed on the Toshiba US driver page.

The Value Added Package is not created and designed for Win XP. It?s only for Vista and Win 7!
Using Win XP you need to install the Toshiba Power Saver Utility for Windows XP (v7.03.07Q; 08-25-2006; 6M) in order to get the power saver installed.

Regarding the WLan:
In my opinion you have not installed the right driver.
There are two different possible WLan cards; WLan or Intel? you will need to install the WLan driver which is compatible with Wlan card.

Hi Everyone,
I looked through installation guides on here for the recommended installation order for drivers after a clean Windows 8 installation on an XPS8500 from Windows 8 disc. I also spoke to Tech Support but keep getting conflicting advice so I thought I would try posting here.
The question I have is regarding the Intel Chipset drivers. I know that they must be installed first before any other drivers. The confusion I have is regarding the Intel AMT HECI drivers (Intel Management Engine Interface) which are also listed as Chipset drivers.
Previous Support Technicians have always said that the Intel AMT HECI drivers installation order is not important so can be installed anytime. They always say Intel Chipset software must be done first though. I have read
driver order installation guides which shows HECI drivers way down on the installation order too.
The other day I was speaking to a guy over the phone on tech support who told me that you should install the Intel Chipset software, then the HECI drivers next!!
The reason I ask is I did a clean Windows 8 installation only last week. I installed the Intel Chipset software first and I have installed other drivers including Graphics and Wireless Network drivers. My HECI drivers were installed later. Will this cause me problems or will it be OK?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks very much in advance.

Answer:Driver Installation Order question after a clean install

The chipset drivers are always first as others have told you followed by the graphics drivers then the rest at your convenience or whatever is pressing.

I've been recently learning about Product ID's (NOT "product keys", these are two very different things), and how to determine what XP disk will work with a given Product Key (on the Certificate of Authenticity).

I have a computer with a valid OEM Product Key, but did not have an OEM version of XP Home SP1 (PID = 55277) on-hand. But I DID have a Retail copy of XP Home SP1 (ALSO PID = 55277).

Tried using that, and it failed twice.

I did some research (see link above) and decided that the only difference between the two was the CID (Channel ID, the 3 characters that follow the PID).

So I modified the Retail XP Home SP1 .ISO file's "setupp.ini" file, and changed the CID from "000" to "OEM".

XP installed, validated and activated just fine after that. I figured I was perfectly legal (yesterday), but today I was considering possibly using this method/technique as advice here on the Forum, and it occured to me that while it may have been technically functional, it might not have been legal.

Is it ?

If so, where is the line drawn ? What if I modified the Product ID (say to make an XP SP3 disk look like XP SP1 to the Product Key), would THAT be legal ? (Would it even work ?)

Answer:Is it Legal to Modify the Product ID/Channel ID in order to Install ?

I would imagine that as long as you're not installing the same CD (or using the same key) on multiple computers, then it would be OK.

However, I'm not a lawyer so don't quote me on it!

I did an update search and it looks like there is something like 180 updates? Wow. But that makes sense considering how old it is.Is there any ideal or specific order to install all the updated drivers?Here is the sequence that I thought / safest way that made sense to me.

Answer:It's built! Any specific order to install drivers/updates?

Install drivers first - get them from the manufacturers of the various equipment, NOT from Microsoft Update. And although it's not as crucial today as it once was, it's still probably best to start with the chipset driver.Install your AV next. Do not wait until after the MS Updates. It's always better to have an active AV while you are online.

Finaly got the computer built over the weekend. Now I just need to install all the drivers, right?Windows 7 has been installed. But I have not done any of the updates. I did an update search and it looks like there is something like 180 updates? Wow. But that makes sense considering how old it is.Is there any ideal or specific order to install all the updated drivers?Here is the sequence that I thought / safest way that made sense to me. Please correct me.1. Update all windows 7 180+ updates2. Install K.P. anti virus software and all updates3. Update all MOBO ( Gigabyte Z97X gaming 3 drivers ). After indows was installed I was not able to get any internet connect. So I installed the install CD that came with my MOBO. Then I had a connection to the internet.

Hello, i have a question regarding a new install of Win7Pro, especially regarding the exact chronological order of Driver install, Windows-Update-installation and so on. The owner of the shop where i bought my 8770w replaced my HDD with a SSD. So the Recovery-Partition is no more existent (he said, there is no other way). And today i need to do a new installation of Windows 7 Pro 64bit, and all of the drivers. As i had some problems finding the correct drivers with my last notebook (HB Business nx9420), i would like to ask you for the exact order of doing what. I need to do: a) install Win7 from a USB-Stick. Bootable stick is here and ready to gob) let Win 7 install all updates (within the installation-process?)c) start HP Softpaq Download Manager and let all needed drivers install. Questions: 1. Is this the correct chronologigal order? 2. How can i identify the correct drivers for MY hardware? Is there any way to identify my exact hardware BEFORE and AFTER the new installation? If i remember correctly, there is a confusing load of drivers and names in this driver installation software, and no way to easily identify what is correct or wrong? 3. Will i need absolutely EVERY driver, softpaq download manager is showing me? I want everything to work correctly. With my last notebook i had issues like not-working background-light-dimmer and such things. 4. Is it important, what installs first? Windows-Update or softpaq download mana... Read more

Hi,
What is the correct and recommended order to install the drivers after a clean Windows 10 installation.
I have always been told that it is Intel Chipset driver first, followed by all the other chipsets (Intel Management Interface etc) and then only after all the chipsets have been installed, the rest of the drivers can basically be installed in any order.
Ive just spoken to a guy on Technical Support who said SATA (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) drivers should be installed before the chipset drivers. Is that correct? This is his suggested order :-
1. BIOS
2. Intel Rapid Storage Technology-SATA driver
3. Intel Chipset driver
4. Then, All the other chipset drivers listed under the laptop service tag can then be installed in any order (Intel Management Interface, Card Reader, Intel Serial IO driver etc)
5. And finally..All the other drivers can then be installed in any order (Wi-Fi, Video, Audio, Ethernet Controller driver etc)

Answer:What is the correct order to install drivers after clean installation?

For the most part it doesn't really matter what order you install the drivers in. The main exception would be drivers for external buses - PCI, USB, TB, etc. since the driver for the controller must be installed before you can enumerate devices connected to them. Since it's hard for people to recognize these, it's simpler just to recommend "chipset" drivers get installed first.

1. It's good to update the BIOS first since a "BIOS" update, which may contain device firmware in addition to the UEFI image, may cause Windows to have to re-detect devices and may cause TPM changes that break Bitlocker/Hello. So it's best to do this before setting up anything else.

2. I don't see any specific reason for installing the RST driver first, unless you were setting up RAID and mess something up that renders the system unbootable.

3. The Intel chipset "driver" literally just makes some cosmetic changes to Device Manager (which is why Intel calls it the "INF update utility"). The actual drivers are already built-in to Windows. But in case Intel makes changes in the future, it's fine to install this before anything else.

I looked through installation guides for the recommended installation order for drivers after a clean Windows 8 installation from Windows 8 disc. I also spoke to Tech Support but keep getting conflicting advice so I thought I would try posting here.
The question I have is regarding the Intel Chipset drivers. I know that they must be installed first before any other drivers. The confusion I have is regarding the Intel AMT HECI drivers (Intel Management Engine Interface) which are also listed as Chipset drivers.
Previous Support Technicians have always said that the Intel AMT HECI drivers installation order is not important so can be installed anytime. They always say Intel Chipset software must be done first though.
On Dells site there is a driver order installation guide which shows HECI drivers way down on the installation order too.
The other day I was speaking to a guy over the phone on tech support who told me that you should install the Intel Chipset software, then the HECI drivers next!!
The reason I ask is I did a clean Windows 8 installation only last week. I installed the Intel Chipset software first and I have installed other drivers including Graphics and Wireless Network drivers. My HECI drivers were installed later. Will this cause me problems or will it be OK?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks very much in advance.

Answer:Installing drivers in the correct order after clean Install

There is no order for installing drivers, unless specified, for instance, when you're downloading a driver, you might find a notification that says, "pls install driver xxxxxx before this one".
The reason that it is common to install the main chipset first, is so as to get proper access to peripherals like USB ports, wifi cards, etc, but it truly makes no difference which order you do them.

I want to create a thread for this because I know we all have different ways we install OS's etc. I am specifically wanting the knowledge of Windows XP / Vista Installation procedures from everyone. Im not really sure if the order of things in which they get installed matter, but I feel they do. With out going into too much detail, this is what I do.

1. After Writing Zero's to my OS drive I format my drive using NTFS (Full in XP) and Just NTFS in Vista

2. After Installation is complete, I turn off system restore, Change Power management to Most Performance, Turn off Sceen Saver.

3. Install Intel Chipset Drivers &l Intel Storage Drivers / Matrix Software --> Restart

4. Install the Latest Direct X Updates (XP) I leave alone if IN Vista --> Restart

5. Install Video Card Drivers --> Restart

6. Install Sound Card Drivers --> Restart

7. All my drivers are installed - Run Windows Update and Install All updates.

8. Proceed to Install Programs in no particular Order, and update them --> Restart

9. Clean out Temp Files , Defrag --> Restart

10. I am good to go.

What are your ways to do it?
 

Answer:Operating System Install Procedure and Order of things...

I never do a full format and video drivers always go on immediately after the OS has finished installing so I can get the higher resolutions and higher quality display when I do the rest of the stuff. I don't update DirectX until the first game I install does it, so I wouldn't even consider that part of the OS installation process.

Yoga 3 Pro P1370 I have an external USB CD/DVD drive.  I would like to from YOGA "OFF", boot to this drive.  From YOGA "OFF" tried the tiny button (pused with pencil point), choose boot menu, this is using "windows boot mgr.", it said to use the "UP & Down" arrows to, change then press <enter> The up & down arrows offered NO  other choices than what was already there. So from off how do i boot to the CD/DVD plugged into the USB port? Thanks

Answer:How to change Boot device order to enable install of OS from CD/DVD?

Hi,
 
First go to BIOS setup and turn off secure boot.  If that doesn't do it, switch the boot mode from UEFI to legacy.
 
What's on the CD you're trying to boot?
