I've built me a computer out of the following hardware:
Mainboard: Intel DH67BLB3
RAM: Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G
CPU: Intel Core i3 2100t
Network interface card: Intel EXPI9301CTBLK PRO1000
System-HDD: Western Digital WD5000AAKX 500GB
Data-HDD's: 2x Western Digital WD20EARS-00MVWB0 (667GB/Platter)
I have successfully installed "Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit".
Question 1) Now it would be interesting to know, which is the best driver installation method?
1) Automatic driver installation: First I would install the drivers from the provided intel driver disc. After that I would update with the online "Automatically Detect and Update My Drivers and Software" function.
2) Manual driver installation: This would be the needed drivers from the "Intel Download Center":
Audio: Realtek ALC Audio Driver (Version 6343)
LAN: Intel PRO Network Connections LAN Driver (Version 16.1)
Chipsatz: Intel Chip set-software for Intel PC-Mainboards (Version 18.104.22.1685)
USB 3.0: Renasas Electronics USB 3.0 Driver (Version 22.214.171.124)
Video: Intel HD-graphics driver for Windows Vista and Windows 7 (126.96.36.1991)
Intel ME: Management-Engine-Driver for Intel 6 Series Chipset-Based Desktop Boards (188.8.131.525)
RAID: Intel Rapid-Storage-Technik-Treiber für Intel PC-Mainboards (10.1.0.1008)
I don't need the "Nuvoton Consumer Infrared (CIR) Driver", because I don't use a remote control.
Question 2) Which is the best "driver installation sequence", if I would install the drivers manually?
Would be great, if someone could help me.
The Intel(R) Device Update Utility can be used to automatically download the latest audio, graphics, and Ethernet drivers, but you will need to go to Intel Download Center to manually download any of the other drivers.
Here is a short video that covers driver installation order. This is one of the videos found on the Intel Download Center main page.
Have fun with your new computer!
