If you are going to reinstall Windows, then you install Windows first, then after you can boot into Windows, then you install drivers/utilities off of your mobo CD.

Make note that the drivers/utilities on your mobo CD are going to be outdated and that you should get the latest versions off of the manufacturers website.

You will need to do as Elbatrop said. First you install mobo (make sure everythings connected) fire it up, reinstall windows, and install the drivers that came along with mobo. Then Enjoy !
