It would be a good idea to do so. They’re real drivers, just you haven’t found the source. How satisfied are you with this response? You may transfer the Software only if the recipient agrees to be fully bound by these terms and if you retain no copies of the Software. Do not use or load this software and any associated materials collectively, the “Software” until you have carefully read the following terms and conditions. I was just about to moan about Lenovo being slow with drivers but they just pushed out Windows 10 drivers and a BIOS update.

I believe Intel have changed to this because it looks good for them, despite it actually having zero benefit. Worse is you can’t even get to the intel inf driver page without knowing the direct link, their support page is horrible for it.

Claims arising intfl this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of California, excluding its principles of conflict of laws and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the Sale of Goods.

It’s actually quite simple if you know how it works.

I’m betting this will be the case with the RTM too. Asus also released a customised version. You may not export the Software in violation of applicable export laws and regulations. So imo its not just cosmetic update to show chipset info. How satisfied are you with this response?


The Software is copyrighted and protected by the laws of the United States and other countries, and international treaty provisions. So it skips a generation then?

INF Update Utility – Primarily for IntelĀ® 6, 5, 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets – Zip Format

Illnino Senior Member Posts: I tried googling it but got nothing. Thanks for marking this as the answer.

Use of the Software by the Government constitutes acknowledgment of Intel’s proprietary rights therein. If anyone reading this has connections at MS, I’d really like an explanation of why Bloomfield-era systems are being excluded from the Windows 10 Upgrade when they are running eligible Windows installations, and the Get Windows 10 applet’s “Check this PC” wizard returns a verdict that the system is ready ifn upgrade!

In reply to Joe Namco’s post on September 6, Same goes for AHCI drivers. Then do your updates, etc!!!

Use of the Software in conjunction with non-Intel component products is not licensed hereunder. Thank you for your feedback.

Intel Chipset Software Installation WHQL Download

I’m always sceptical about these WHQL’s from station-drivers that are not on Intel’s or any Motherboard manufacturers website. The release notes say that it supports Intel C series chipset which X79 is.


Why Core 2 Duo and not 1st Gen Core i7?!! A little light in this dark corner would be so welcome.

Thank you for jntel feedback. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software. As Vista and Win 7 share virtually the same driver model, I’m sure you’ll see a lot of re-using of Vista drivers especially on established items, where no performance gain could be gotten with newer drivers By Microsoft, not the manufacturer, their drivers should be an improvement.

I did same installation steps. It also is a Core 2 Duo.
