Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply, but....

The page on the driver installation order you linked me to (third link) is about 7 years old and specifies some drivers/applications that are not applicable for my system, while also not mentioning certain drivers/applications that are applicable. I was kind-of hoping that I could be provided with a driver installation order that is specific to my system.
