How am I supposed to install chipset drivers before windows? 



You don`t, you let Windows check for important updates as part of the install procedure, once Windows has installed** and you can log in you then install the drivers from the disk that shipped with the MB, once that is done you install the software for any add on devices such as a GPU, once this has been done you have Windows check for updates.


** Please note that before going online or connecting any USB devices that have previously had data on them, you need to make sure that you have an AV software protecting your computer, not a problem in Windows 8.1 and 10 as Windows Defender which is basically the same as Microsoft Security Essentials will automatically be enabled after the Windows 8.1/10 install, you will need to allow Defender to be fully updated and to carry out a scan, the latter even with new hardware.
