LENOVO Y460 Drivers Reinstall Order

I need the correct driver install order, on a clean install of windows 7 ultimate. I have read some other recommended driver install orders, but am unsure.

 

I have reinstalled windows 3 times since my purchase, due to virus, and other system (hdd drive) problems. 

 

On my previous install i had one hell of a time, deciding which drivers were needed, and which were messing with the system.

 

I am using all drivers for win 7 64 bit off of this download page.

Thanks again.

Re: LENOVO Y460 Drivers Reinstall Order

you can install the drivers the order as download page listed the drivers.

( just install power management before network drivers )

you can skip the softwares if you don't want to use them.

Which order to install drivers?

Hello, I recently acquired a Lenovo laptop. I plan to format the hard drive and install a copy of Windows Ultimate I own. I've heard it's best to install drivers in a certain order, is this true? if it is, what is the best order to install them? and should I install drivers or windows updates first?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Which order to install drivers?

Well, its kinda not really important, but if you ask...

- Intel Chipset & Related (like rapiddrive, matrix storage etc if applicable).
- Video
- Audio
- Rest.

Just follow every step which drivers are telling you or is telling you manufacturer (like if you should restart - then restart, or if there is some dependences between drivers - follow manual).

But as 've said, in my opinion, nowadays order is not really important unless specified.

just download them all, install them, click next a bunch of times, then reboot at the end.
