    Not a good idea to open 2 same topic's in 2 different forum! Keep things together, even for to ease your own solve of problems!

    Google for SamDrivers, best solution IMHO.

    Perhaps if user is installing onto various computers but 7.4-Gb is a bit much when correct drivers for his ASRock motherboard and GFX card are available :(

    Normally souldn't create problems, as i update my drivers from time to time :D. So the order of install is mostly a secondary problem.

    To end this: more drivers are not needed to install. On last two Win 8,1 laptops i only installed graphics drivers, the rest is running the default ones Windows is installing at Setup. No problems there :good3:.

    Recent windows version perhaps require lesser drivers to function. On 8/8.1 for functionality, I only need NVidia and ASM SATA controller.
    I do install chipset, realtek network, and qualcomm wifi drivers but can also do without them.

    Yep, do it on my main machine likewise. Tested both laptops by running 3D Mark in loop, both passed the stress test :D.

    Same for me.
    I do not want to go off-topic but even on my laptop, if I get functionality, I save the driver installs for later. Most components do work on 8,8.1 except for native display. For that, I install video drivers straight up to get proper resolution.

    Not that much off-topic, as the TS was asking which drivers are needed for a working system :cool2:. Most vendors offer a lot of additional crap, that will mostly slow dow your system (if not break it nearly), so i guess it might be a good idea to point at this fact.
