Windows 7: Correct Driver installation

Correct Driver installation

Hi all i,m planning to build a new System to replace my old one , and i,m looking for some Advice on how to install Driver,s correctly

So i bought 2 Samsung Evo Ssd,s and i would like to try them out in AHCI.

Now i know i should turn on AHCI before even installing the Ssd,s , but i wonder my new motherboard , an asus 990 fx comes with a seperate AHCI Driver i saw on the Support Page .

i,ve heard using the F6 Method of installing Driver,s , but have never used this before , is it advisable to do this during installation of Windows , or can i just install them after installing Windows ?

i,ve also heard Windows 7 natively supports Ahci , so installing a seperate Driver isn,t neccesary

i,m not exactly sure on how to proceed

All advice would be greatly appreciated !

Windows 7 supports AHCI natively so you will not need to install drivers for it initially. Once Windows 7 is installed, there may be better drivers available from your motherboard manufacturer that can be installed later.

Thx alot copter for your Advice! , i,m a bit confused about the difference in function,s , of the Motherboard,s Driver ( support Driver Ahci ) and Window,s natively support of it ,and wich one to use /install

i,ve made a custom Windows install with rt7 lite and i,d like to make a pure as possible build of it ,

i,m not a Pro system builder , but so far i think , . with a fresh installation 2 Driver,s are required after installation of Windows , the Chipset Driver and the Vga Driver

Thx again !
