Installing drivers for E5530 in the correct sequence

I recently purchased Latitude E5530 (Windows 7, 64 bit).

I found instructions for Installation Sequence of the drivers.

(ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_latitude_laptop/latitude-e5530_Reference%20Guide_en-us.pdf)

So, I installed the first two drivers in the list:

2.5 BIOS

2.6.1 Intel Chipset Driver

But the next one to install is Dell System Software for critical Microsoft QFEs. For E5530 (4th Generation Latitude Family) it says to :

"enable the Windows Update and connect to Internet once install the driver of Integrated Wired Network Controller."

Hmm, what am I supposed to do...?

So I'm not toWhere can I find Integrated Wired Network Controller-driver? Is it the Intel Ethernet Controller Driver? And afer that I should use Windows Update to install...which updates? QFEs? Oher Windows Updates should be performed later? (on the instructions it's at 2.6.22)

Or should I skip 2.6.2 and do the Windows QFE Updates afer 2.6.8?

Re: Installing drivers for E5530 in the correct sequence

Hello Falco83,

The statement, "please enable the Windows Update and connect to Internet once install the driver of Integrated Wired Network Controller" means to enable windows updates, the computer must have internet connection for which the Intel Ethernet Controller Driver needs to be installed. Without which the computer would have internet connectivity. 

For more details on the correct order to install the drivers, see Installing Drivers in the Correct Order.  Visit the drivers and download page for Latitude E5530 to get the drivers for the system. 

Please write back for further queries. 

Thanks & Regards

My Windows Reinstallation Guide explains it in a bit more detail:

http://philipyip.wordpress.com/dell-community-forums/

See A Clean Install of Windows 7.

We have been asking Dell to list the drivers in the correct install order for years now.

Dell System Software isn't listed for your model but take it from here:
