Windows will install it's basic Sata driver by default, if you are going to use an Mvme Pcie drive as your boot drive then install Windows as a GPT drive. If you are not sure how to do that then please ask.
Hi, I will be installing Windows 10 on a new Samsung 970 Pro M.2 SSD drive. This will be my main drive which will have the OS. So i need to install Windows 10 as a GPT Drive?? How do i do this??
Thanks for your help!! 🙂
Zitat von @ Intel
The Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility is not a driver and does not include drivers.
The Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility gives the product name for the piece of hardware. This information allows the operating system to display the correct name for that piece of hardware in Device Manager.
There was a time when the chipset driver was a make or break install, wherein not installing it could cause major performance issues, but that it no longer the case with modern Intel systems, the MEI is much more vital and should be the first thing a user should install the newest available from their specific motherboards' software page.
Chipset drivers aren't necessary or even recommended to install anymore unless you have a completely unidentified device in your Device Manager. Unidentified as in you have no idea what the listing is for even after taking into account all user custom hardware n that could lead to a Yellow Triangle unidentified line item until a proper driver is installed.
Windows will auto install a Chipset info package on your PC with your first updates, so the driver from Asus should not be installed unless you have a line item in "System Devices" or similar showing as unidentified.
Stating that, if you are like me and obsess over having everything up to date or are the official new software tester for your colleagues, you can install the specific .INF for your current motherboard that can be found at the link I posted. This way you won't add unnecessary fluff to your Windows install for no benefit.
