How to Install the Supplemental Software

  1. Choose to install or not to install supplemental software.

    Choose one of the following, depending on the option previously selected:

    • Do Not Install Supplemental Software – If you selected not to install the supplemental software when you ran the procedure described inHow to Install Server-Specific Device Drivers, refer to that procedure and run it again, and this time accept the default settings in Step 3 (the default is to install the supplemental software), and select No in Step 8.

      You should always accept default installable items to ensure that the most recent versions of the drivers are installed.

    • Install Supplemental Software – If you selected to install supplemental software at the Server Installation Package dialog box in Step 3 of How to Install Server-Specific Device Drivers, and selected No (to not reboot your computer) in Step 8, the Install Pack Supplemental Software dialog box appears.

  2. Choose Typical or Custom.

    In the Install Pack Supplement Software dialog box, click Next to accept the Typical settings; or click Custom to choose the options to install. See descriptions of the supplemental software in Table 6.
