Even I after installing Windows over the years can't answer. I find myself using my guide but can't make up your list unless I had the laptop and installed Windows and worked at the drivers once or twice.
As to your repeat customer issue, I find few makers will have this detail for you. Maybe you want an Apple where the OS and system is highly tuned and you don't do driver hunts.
This matter is specifically ASUS related. More particularly it is about identifying the correct set of drivers to install on a particular ASUS model, the F555LDB (otherwise labelled the X555LDB.303 in some countries and as that alone in the ID list on the ASUS support site (judt tokeep you on your toes!) It was on the shelves in 2015 and is a general workhorse machine.
I’ve been getting nowhere fast with ASUS tech support and its online support site (a fate seemingly shared by many other owners), even though the full model number and serial number has been supplied t them .
The issue is this.
The original HD is defunct, neither the OS or anything else is on any form of recovery media and its contents would be recoverable only at vast expense, if at all.
But essential data is all backed up so I have no issues there.

I’ve managed to download MS’s media creation tool and run it, so have win 10 home premium 64bit all set to go from a USB stick.
But I haven’t a clue which particular ASUS specific drivers should be installed – I’m particularly anxious about the network and touchpad drivers - Windows Update might struggle to find the best. I had earlier unresolved problems with wifi drop outs and I’m anxious to have the ASUS driver for this.
Nowhere on the ASUS support pages can this information be found. It’s extraordinary. The model name andserial number don’t take you to the specific list of drovers. Instead you’re asked to provide one of two weird CPU and BIOS details. You are given a choice of 2 wholly irrelevant ID numbers, both completely unrelated and having no resemblance to any item having an ID in the System Information
It’s a bog standard unit – Core i5 5200 @2.20GHz (Broadwell-U), Chipset revision 9.

It seems to be beyond the ability of ASUS’s own product database to identify the required driver IDs for this particular model. Emails produce incoherent pidgin English replies that do not make sense.
If any reader uses one of these ASUS units, could you please send me a list of the drivers installed – it clearly is beyond the ability of ASUS to do this. Their customer support has lost them one potential repeat purchaser.
