1 Answer 1

A1: This setting specifies which graphics adapter is initialised first if there is more than one installed in your system. You have only onboard graphics installed, therefore this setting is irrelevant to you currently. However, it would be appropriate to set this to PCIe in case you decide to install an additional PCI Express graphics adapter in the future, this setting will ensure that the new card would be correctly initialised without further configuration changes.

A2: Are you certain you are installing the correct driver for the correct operating system? Also, are you sure you do not already have the most up-to-date driver installed? What do you mean when you say 'it just hangs', what hangs - the installer, windows? Download the driver fresh and try again.
