The drivers disk that is included with the MSI 890GXM-G65 comes with all the software you will need to get the board properly set up, as well as a few extras. After you insert the disk, it will autorun into the installation menu you see below. This menu has a clean interface that makes it extremely easy to use. The options you have here are Drivers, Utility, Service Base, Product information, and Security. When you select one of these listed options, the bottom portion of the screen will reflect the choice you have made, allowing options from installing specific drivers to being linked to the MSI website for up-to-date downloads. MSI has also included a 60-day trial offer for Norton Internet Security Suite 2010 that is found under the Security tab on the far right.
Once you have made the selection to install the drivers, an ATI Catalyst Install Manager will appear and guide you though the processes. During the installation, you will have two options on how to proceed. These are either to install the drivers automatically or manually. If you choose manual, you can pick and choose from a list of specific drivers to install, where as if you choose auto, all the drivers will be automatically selected and installed for you. After the installation process starts, it will show you a progression bar on the status of the install. Once the progression bar shows 100%, you are done and will be prompted to restart your system. After the computer finishes this cycle, you are all set up and ready to go.
When the system shuts down, instead of booting back into Windows, we are going to take a look at the Award BIOS.
