You can't install drivers without having an OS... else how would you get them installed.
Best way is to use the cd for the mobo drivers, which usually include lan drivers, then go to the manufactuers sites... You can even do all that first, by putting on to a cd, or flash drive, and get the newest versions. OH install your A/V before going online... you never know what mght be scanning.
Chipset drivers are installed like any other driver, its usually a simple exe file.
Never use MS updates... the drivers are usually way out of date. Also, I go to the Nvidia site for drivers, instead of the card manufactuer, unless theres a very specific reason to get it from the manuf.
And welcome to TF.
