Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I hate to post after the fact, but it happens that my Wife's 14r is setting next to me getting a fresh install of 7.

If you're looking to install the minimum necessary drivers, which I get from your original post, mine needed chipset drivers (3), Wired NIC driver (1), Bluetooth (1), and Wireless, which I installed after extracting the actual drivers from the installation file since I don't especially like Intel management utility.

Windows found and installed the Video driver on its own once it had an Internet connection.

You can install every driver that lists for you computer if you want to. No harm done, but it does take time and space that you could probably put to better use.

I say that because I tend a herd of over 200 boxen and if I spent that much time and energy installing every listed driver, I'd have way too much bloat to deal with.

Now that you have a satisfactory install, consider using Windows PE to capture an image which will save you a bundle of time if you need to wipe and reinstall.

Have fun.
