Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H Review



Gigabyte uses a really great piece of software, called Xpress Install, which will check for what software and drivers are needed by the type of hardware and install them all with only one button. To start Xpress Install, insert the CD into the drive and there will be a pop up box asking what you would like to do with the CD. Click Run and Xpress Install will start. Check the software and drivers you wish to be installed and click the Xpress Install button. The program will run and then it will prompt you to restart your computer. Click "OK" and reboot your computer to finalize the installation.















The installation CD also has a slew of other software programs for you such as Anti-Virus and utilities to use with your new motherboard. It also has a nice feature that will provide you with information about the drivers on the CD and about your system hardware.




One thing I immediately installed is the @-BIOS utility. This allows a user to do a BIOS update or save the current one all from within Windows. Another great feature about @-BIOS is that it will search the Gigabyte servers for the most current BIOS for you and download it automatically so there are no mistakes.



Well, we installed the hardware and updated the BIOS, so let's reboot and see what the BIOS has in store for us.
