G500 drivers installation order on Windows 7

Hello,

 

I just bought this laptop, a G500, model name: 20236 and model number CB03103187.

 

LENOVO ESSENTIAL G500H 59-395372 15.6'' INTEL CORE I3-3120M 4GB 1TB AMD RADEON HD8570M 1GB FREE DOS

 

With no windows. 

It came with free dos on it. Which is just fine.

 

I would like to use my own new copy of windows 7 64-bit.

 

I will download the drivers from here:

Drivers and software - Lenovo G500 Notebook

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS035531

 

 

Is there a particular driver installation order ?

 

I am thinking of doing it in thisorder:

 

-Windows 7

-windows 7 SP1

-BIOS

-chipset

-amd video

-audio

-usb device

-blue tooth

-atheros LAN

-WLAN

-camera

-card reader

-touch pad

-power mgmt

 

 

Do i need these drivers?

-intel video drivers

-intel mgmt engine

-intel rapid storage

 

Thank you in advance,

Gus

Hello Gus,

There is no particular driver installation order. I personally firstly install Chipset then Display/Video drivers and after that everything else. Since you have AMD RADEON HD8570M in your machine, you do not have to install the three additional Intel drivers.

Lenovo's site was not up to date with its stuff.

I received a laptop with an Intel wifi card in it.

But I could not find the drivers for it.

Lenovo's site had only driverds for three other makers of wifi.

It took a while to figure it out. Because there was no easy way to detect the intel card.

I hope lenovo is more updated next time.
