    Load Drivers before installing Windows..

    Hey guys,

    So i'm using the windows ISO creation download..

    I am installing windows 8.1 core on a Lenovo y410p..
    hwinfo 64 says this for chipset: Intel HM86 (Lynx Point)

    Once I reboot to start the process of Installing windows, around the point of when I format the drive to ready it, there is an option to "load drivers" before the actual install..

    Can/Do I use the "load drivers" before I actually install windows? Ive seen that button but never really used it. Is that what that is for, to install chipset drivers I downloaded or something?

    I've never had to use that myself, if it asks for drivers that would the time to use it otherwise just do the install and update/install drivers after.

    As long as you are connected to the internet windows will find any drivers it needs to complete the install.
