New ThinkPad was received with Vista x32, and I plan to install Vista x64.
I'm now collecting all the drivers and files etc.
Is there any recommended sequence in which the various Lenovo utilities must be installed??
That is, after Intel chipset drivers, graphics, networking??
I already know about the pre-requisites for ThinkVantage Access Connections.
Thank you, Tom

Actually, the order is quite important. For example, the power manager drivers will only give maximum effectiveness if installed in the correct order.
Use this guide Notebookreview.com Vista Clean Install Guide
I found it very helpful and hopefully you will too!

Great guide, thank you very mutch!
But what about the service packs? I heared it's a good idea to install SP1 after all drivers. Some people in the German community claim noticeable effect on power saving according to this source (German).
On the other hand I found this article that suggests the exact opposite, namely installing SP1 first, but without any explination why this was a good idea. Maybe it's just cooincidence or guessing?
Can you confirm any of these? And is there anything to consider regarding SP2?
So according to the german guide, I guess the best sequence would be:
What do you think about this?
Thank you in advance, Markus
