Which driver disc?

I have an HP ProDesk 405 G2 Desktop PC. It came with a Windows 7 Professional SP1 OS DVD, 2 Windows 8.1 Pro OS DVD and 2 different Driver Recovery DVDs. I want to reinstall the Win 7 OS on this PC. How do I know which Driver Recovery disc to use? Should I use both? Neither?

I think you will find that Win 7 will install without using either of the driver recovery disks!

I hope this helps!
