Windows 7: New Computer Build install with MB disc or get drivers from internet

New Computer Build install with MB disc or get drivers from internet

Is it recommended to use the disc that comes with the MB or download the latest drivers beforehand from the internet to install on a USB key?
Do I have 30 days to get a Windows 7 License from the day I install the OS?

Yes, you have 30 days to activate windows, take your time there`s no rush.

Depending on how old the motherboard is, there may be newer drivers at the website, to me it doesn`t really matter, you can always use the disc then upgrade the drivers manually, there aren`t that many to even worry about.

The disc that came with my Sabertooth Z170 is awesome, just check what you want to install and you`re off.

Don`t ever loose that disc, put it right back in the box when you`re done with it :)
