    For a new computer (Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q880), I would like to…
    1. Do all the Windows 7 and driver updates (and updating to Windows 7 Ultimate).
    2. Do a system backup, without the bloatware.
    3. Install the clean system from backup.
    I am not sure about backing up only the drivers; will have to do more research. Worst case is downloading the drivers from Toshiba, but the list is rather long (101 of them, including non-driver stuff).
