Newel, baluster and railing project

Hello. I am new to this site ad hoping to find some help for a new project we are about to begin. We are replacing newels, balusters and railings on our staircase. I will also add new risers and retreads. I have uploaded pictures of the current stairs to m album.

I have selected our new parts and we will install a post to post system with box newels. My main question (at this moment) relates to newel installation.

That is, how to install the newel posts at the top of the stairway and the balcony. Since I have a knee wall, I am not sure of the best design. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Oh, I am adding hard wood flooring as part of this project!

Thank you in advance!
