Burn an ISO of Win7 to a DVD, format your HDD, put the DVD in, start the computer. When it asks you to input your Windows 7 product key you can find it glued to the bottom of your computer.

. . . then install your chipset driver, your ATK Package, then all the rest of your drivers.

Yeah, what he said. >_>

Could pre-emptively put them all on a USB or something. Make sure to be careful when/if updating your BIOS and only updating it from a USB formatted to FAT32, since it FAT32 is closer to the machine code of your computer than NTFS and thus far less likely to cause a bad flash.

Yeah I would recommend putting all of the most important drivers on a USB so you can just install them right when you boot Windows. One of the most helpful would be the Wifi and/or LAN drivers so you can access the internet.

Or better yet, to make it simpler and avoid an activation call to MS, use the following app:

Make sure you chose the ABRbeta.exe

Good luck.
