The Abit AN-M2HD Motherboard utilizes the nVidia 630a chipset and drivers. It has an onboard 7 series graphics card.
You can either use the main menu to auto install the drivers for the motherboard, or click on browse CD which will give you the options to manually install the drivers. I suggest if you are going to choose a manual install that you install the chipset drivers first. The chipset drivers include Display, Ethernet, IDE and SMbus.
Next, install the sound drivers; the AN-M2HD has a Realtek HD chipset for onboard sound.
The AMD CPU driver should be installed even if you choose not to utilize the Cool and Quiet settings on the motherboard. It is essential for Windows to run correctly and if it is not installed it will decrease the performance of a dual core processor.
Abit also includes its own utilities, those being the Abit EQ, which wiill help with overclocking in Windows, and it will also give you options to adjust fan speeds. The other utility included is a flash utility; this will allow you to download and install an updated BIOS from Abit while in a Windows atmosphere.
