Hey guys, I'm going to be building a new computer and I need some tips on what to do after it's built, software wise.
This is the order I have came up with so far:
1) Boot new computer
2) go into BIOS and make sure all hardware is detected
3) Set CD drive to boot first ( to be switched back later )
4) Put in OS CD in CD drive
5) Save BIOS settings and restart computer
6) Install windows
Now my question is what do I do next after I install windows. Since It's a new system there's going to be lots of updates for me to do. Do I install my windows updates / virus scanner first, install my motherboard drivers second, and then installing my video card drivers third? Also when I updated the motherboard drivers , is that updating my BIOS or is that a separate update? I've been also told to not use the cd drivers that come with my motherboard and video card. And that I should go to the manufactures site instead for the latest driver updates.
Tips are appreciated!! If someone could even give me their routine that would be wonderful
