Windows 7: Format last time. Please help me. :)

Format last time. Please help me. :)

Hi. I am going to do a full final clean install format in legacy mode from windows 10 back to windows 7 home 64bit.

I have

Asus H61M-K Mother board
Asus Strix 970 GTX Graphic card
corsair 8gb Low profile RAM
Ivy bridge I7 3770k 3.50ghz
corsair HX 750i PSU
ssd crucial 120GB
HDD 500 GB Seagate barracuda

I will load up default bios first but what order do I put the boot option in. Legacy first legacy only etc.

Also for this motherboard is there a INF file as for my old broke z77x-ud3h on there web site there was a INF file but for this motherboard there is not one.

Apart from drivers on DVD what came with the motherboard what other drivers you recommend.

when I right click on this PC in windows and press manage and press disk management. It says at the bottom connecting to virtual drives. Is this normal as I didn't think it was a virtual machine or is that something else thanks.

I am going to keep windows 7 on until I need to change or buy a new PC in about a year and half.

The only driver you need to worry about is the network driver (on the MB disc) so you can get online.

Get the drivers for the 970 from, the latest drivers are 355.82 Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Clean Install Windows 7

It says connecting to virtual disk service, not drives, it`s totally normal.
