    For the time being select Ask Me Later, you can update it all once you've got your drivers installed and working.

    use whatever setting you want. I personally always use remind me later and set it to get no updates and check for no updates.

    Copy the files off the memory stick and install your drivers. John said they should be EXE files, so just click on them to install, as if you were installing any other program.

    The files are called setup.exe? Just run them to install the drivers.

    Yeah the file extensions are hidden by the default so it will only appear to be called 'setup'. Just click on the file to launch the setup and it should be fine.

    Looks like Setup is the file you want to run.

    Do you have 32- or 64-bit Windows? Try the board CD.
