How do I install Laptop drivers in the proper order

Hello,

I just bought this laptop:


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 will use my own new copy of windows 7 64-bit.

I found and will download the lenovo-drivers from here

Drivers and software - Lenovo G500 Notebook:
Drivers and software - Lenovo G500 Notebook

My humble quesation is:

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
-turn on internet connection and perform all the Windows updates



Also there are some others, that I am not sure if I really need them.
Do you think i need these drivers?
-intel video drivers
-intel mgmt engine
-intel rapid storage

Thank you in advance,
kVargas

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 ..

I would suggest moving "turn on internet connection" to the top of your list.
