There are cases where you do not make commutative software packages, like AI Suite 3, where you separately release an update for DIP without having the entire sub components of it repacked, and that's somehow bare-able, but when it comes to actual drivers, that's a bit risky.
The latest Intel LAN v188.8.131.52 driver is missing the software components and probably a lot more when comparing the latest package to it's predecessor. It can also be obviously apparent when the package itself is only 2.9 MB while the full package is above 150 MB.
Please take it into consideration, as when installing the latest driver, you don't even get an install-shield UI running, it just happens in the background. This is relevant to several Z370 series boards, not just PRIME Z370-A.
