    Installing Windows 7 chipset Inf Files on DX58SO

    HWB

      The readme file extracted from INF_allOS_9.1.1.1025_PV.exe is not applicable

      to Windows 7-64.  The command sequence after install of OS Instructions don't exist

      in win 7-64.  Can anyone tell me where i can find step by step directions as they relate

      to installing chipset inf files for the DX58SO mobo?

          Sorry but what is the problem, apart from wanting teh step by step? i mean are the chipset drivers not installing?

          • 2. Re: Installing Windows 7 chipset Inf Files on DX58SO

            The inf files extract to the folder as they should, its the 22 lines of instructions

            on how to install them after they have been extracted that makes no sense.

              As far as i can remeber, don't you just run the .exe which will extract the files and then start the installation process automatically? then you just press next next next netx untill it say it finished? maybe theres a liscence agreement you need to agree to inbetween as well

                  Hello,

                   

                  Agreed with Cpt.DogFruit, it is normally done by simply running the exe file; in some cases, for some Intel(R) chipset platforms already are supported by
                  Windows 7* so it may not be necessary to use the INF files provided by this software to update Windows 7*. It is worth of disabling UAC from win7 before installing it and then run the installer as Administrator.

                   

                  In this case, you will need to check the device manager if there is any yellow bang.

                  If there is any yellow bang, let me know the device id, i will help to install the driver manually.

                   

                  Run the command from Run:

                  x:/INF_allOS_9.1.1.1025_PV.exe -a

                  where x is the location of the file

                   

                  -A              Extracts the INF files and Readme to either
                                  "C:\Program Files\Intel\InfInst" or the
                                  <Installation Path> directory specified using
                                  the '-P' flag. The software will NOT install
                                  these INF files to the system. This flag can
                                  be combined only with the '-P' flag. All other
                                  options will be ignored if the '-A' flag is
                                  specified. This flag works in Interactive Mode
                                  only.

                   

                  All the best,

                   

                  Kind Regards,

                  Aryan.

                    Resolved:  Problem stemmed from the poorly written readme file that was extracted from the INF_allOS_9.1.1.1025_PV.exe file.
                     
                    In attempting to follow directions as described in installing the Windows 7 INF FILES AFTER OS Installation I found operation sequences as defined do not exist within Windows 7.

                     

                    The CONTENTS OF THIS DOCUMENT section is incorrect with respect to 9G being the windows 7 area.

                     

                    Area 9G is in fact Server 2008 install directions, the windows 7 area should be 9F but there is no 9F in the document, however it can be found above the 9G area.

                     

                    Rajiv Doolub and Cpt.DogFruit are correct the file does self install.

                     

                    Steps as defined in Section 6 of the readme file are all that are required after the install of Windows 7.

                    Note: My system did not re-boot after the install however the files were in fact transferred.

                      Rajiv Doolub and everyone,

                       

                      I've followed ALL of these instructions, yet I still have an exclamation mark (bang) next to PCI-to-PCI bridge.  After running the installer and letting it install by itself, it's still there.

                       

                      Can you help me find/install the correct driver for the PCI to PCI bridge?  The current driver is the Windows 7 driver and NOT working.

                       

                      Thank you

                        Hello,

                         

                        Can you please let me know the device id and hardware id for the unknown device?

                        I am assuming that you have the board dx58so.

                          Yes, I'm using the DX58S0.

                           

                          The hardware Ids in question are:

                           

                          PCI\VEN_10B5&DEV_8112&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_AA
                          PCI\VEN_10B5&DEV_8112&SUBSYS_00000000
                          PCI\VEN_10B5&DEV_8112&REV_AA
                          PCI\VEN_10B5&DEV_8112
                          PCI\VEN_10B5&DEV_8112&CC_060400
                          PCI\VEN_10B5&DEV_8112&CC_0604

                          It's located at:  PCI bus 7, device 2, function 0

                           

                          I'm not sure where to get the Device Ids for you.

                           

                          Also, in an odd twist, I decided to uninstall the device via the device manager and now (after a reboot) Windows 7 is reporting:

                          --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                          The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

                          There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.


                          To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.

                          ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                           

                          and three new "unknown devices" are now showing.  Reinstalling the driver from the driver pack now generates an error during install and it fails.

                           

                          Did I screw up by uninstalling the device?

                            Hello,

                             

                            Vendor ID: 10B5 is not an Intel Vendor ID.

                            It seems to be for PLX Technology Inc.

                             

                            For Intel, it is 0x8086.

                             

                            I have no idea that device is present on your board.

                            Do you know if there is any add-in cards on the board. These unknown devices are not from Intel Corp.

                             

                            All the best,

                              Hello benjaminkeith,

                              I'm assuming your talking win7-64.

                              I about pulled my hair out on this install.

                              Completely disregard everything said in the readme file.

                              Running of INF_allOS_9.1.1.1025_PPV.exe, does the install but it never gives you a clue that it did.

                                Negative, it doesn't install correctly.  JUST did another fresh install of Windows 7 (x64), followed immediately by the driver install (INF_allOS_9.1.2.1007_PV.exe) still with PCI to PCI Bridge showing as "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".

                                 

                                Driver provider showing is:  Microsoft, 6/21/2006, 6.1.7600.16385

                                  I've given up.  Windows 7 and the DX58S0 just aren't ready for my configuration I guess.

                                   

                                  Going back to Windows XP.  :-(

                                    The INF configuration file simply updates the text for proper installation of drivers.  It does not install drivers so unless an odd device is currently in use (should not be for updates) no reboot should occur.  Updates in configuration would only occur upon reboot or use.  Most problems updates would involve Linux where directory structure could be customized, requiring manual updates.  Problems exist for Windows 7 but some are nonspecific issues that relate to changes in modern hardware.
