Good Morning All,

I am looking to doing a custom build desktop. What I was wondering is how to install the drivers for the motherboard? Do I just insert the CD in the drive on start up, or do I download the drivers off of the web and then wait until the select disk screen when installing windows and click load driver tab?

I have never done this before and wasn't sure of the proper steps, also, what steps are necessary in setting up the BIOS?

Most of the drivers for the motherboard are automatically downloaded and installed by Windows. Occasionally, there may be one that Windows cannot figure out, in that case, you should go to your motherboard manufacturer's website for updated drivers, or use the CD with older drivers. With the BIOS, you may need to set the proper date and time, but, unless you're enabling features like fan control or overclocking, BIOS setup is relatively straightforward.
