Samsung R530 JT50 reinstall on SSD 850 EVO - which drivers?

Hi all!
I've just installed a Windows-7/64bit Home Premium on a brand new 250 GB SSD (Samsung 850 EVO) placed in the title notebook.
Old Samsung HDD is died so I reinstelled using a clean W7 DVD.

Now I think it's time to install all drivers. But which one exactly.
On Samsung site I read on top of web page:

Code:
R530 JT50
NP-R530E
An that NP-R530E let me in doubt...
Moreover if you look at some link address, for example "Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Driver", you can read a the srting "ModelName=NP-R530E"...

Code:
http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_IT&CttFileID=5079439&CDCttType=DR&ModelType=N&ModelName=NP-R530E&VPath=DR/201202/20120222160951015/QCA_WLAN_Driver_1.0.0.1.ZIP
Is that the right page containing right drivers for my notebook?
Perhaps two models have the same or very similar specs and so drivers are the same...
Could you confirm?

Thanks in advance!
See you.

The Link you have Posted should work for any missing Drivers you have ...


I would first run Windows Updates as that should supply you with most Drivers needed ..

It discusses which drivers and OEM software which may need reimporting in Clean Reinstall Windows 7
which is the guide to follow to get and keep a perfect install.

I've read it... And if I well understood seems you suggest to:
1- Run windows Update and install all system driver provided by Win7 itself
2- For the rest if there are problems or in case of missed drivers, install the OEM provided driver specific for PC model if it is an pre-assembled one (also a notebook) or driver provided directly by chips and devices manufacturer if we have an assembled PC.

Is it right, did I well understand?

Thanks Greg for your confirm and thanks to maxie too.

Now I've installed all drivers.. system required just two missed: wireless adapter (atheros chip) and VGA Nvidia 330M (if I well remember). For these two I chose drivers provided by Samsung instead the same version of chip manufactured (by atheros and nvidia respectively).

Then lastly I've added a samsung app "easy display" to activate function buttons for volume, brightness and wifi controls.

Seems all working right! So thanks again!

Now, I read around on the net about tweaks and specific configurations to be used in presence of an SSD.
This is first time I've installed such a disk type.
Others suggest to let Windows 7 manage properly the drive without add any other tweak or particular config.

What about you?
What do you suggest for SSD system drive?
Any specific system configuration or none of that?

Thanks again in advance!
