I got a used toshiba tecra s1 today, so I am going to install windows xp pro on it using its product key code, but I will have to go to toshibas website to install all the needed drivers.
I am pretty certain you should install the drivers in a certain order, i did this once with a tech but I cant remember the order
Can anyone help me out
thanks

Realistically it makes absolutely no difference to the order on modern day systems.

ok i did more research and finally found it, anyone else wondering this here is the order:
1. Windows* operating system service packs or patches available from Microsoft* (for example, Service Pack 3 for Windows* XP)
2.Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility
3. Microsoft DirectX* 9.0 or later
4. Video or graphics driver (for example, Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver)
5. Intel® Application Accelerator or Intel® Matrix Storage Manager
6. Sound or audio drivers
7. LAN or network drivers

The only important point is to install chipset drivers first. The sequence of all others doesn't matter.
