    Is there a way to force WIndows 7 drivers to install on Server OS on Desktop Boards?

    geogherkins

      Is there a way to bypass the OS check in the Intel driver installer? I have had some luck getting drivers to work on my DG965WH with Windows Home Server 2011 (which is based upon Windows Server 2008 R2). I download the Vista 64bit or Windows 7 64bit from the Intel website.

       

      Can't get these to work yet:

      • Intel® ME: Management Engine Driver for Intel 963/965 Chipset-Based Desktop Boards
      • Graphics: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for 963/965 Chipset-based Intel Desktop Boards

       

      Not sure about this yet (although installs and clears the Device Manager !warning):

      • Audio: IDT* 92XX Driver
      • Chipset: Intel® Chipset Device Software for Intel® Desktop Boards

       

      These drivers seem okay:

      • LAN: Intel® PRO Network Connections Driver for Intel® Desktop Boards for Windows Vista*
      • RAID: Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver for Intel Desktop Boards

       

      Is there a way to bypass the OS check in the Intel installer?

          I am appending  the install logs for the drivers that are failing.

          • 2. Re: Is there a way to force WIndows 7 drivers to install on Server OS on Desktop Boards?
            rseiler

            What about right-clicking the EXE and using the Compatibility tab?  Note that you might have to do this on the inside setup EXE you see after extracting the archive, using 7-Zip, for example.

             

            That may or may not work, but extracting the download and then going to Device Manager and doing a manual "update driver software" (don't recall the exact phrasing), pointing it to where you extracted, should definitely work.

            • 3. Re: Is there a way to force WIndows 7 drivers to install on Server OS on Desktop Boards?
              vbaderks

              If I remember correctly there are sometimes 2 packages for the inf files. One with an installer (that performs checks) and a zip file with just the drivers.

               

              Using the zip file it is possible to install the drivers using the Windows device manager:

              - select the device

              - right click to get the properties dialogbox

              - click the driver tab page

              - press the "update driver button", select manual and select the directory with the inf files. If windows finds a matching driver it will install it (windows will use the PCI # to match the .inf files)

               

              An alternative is to run the .exe installer and when it has unpacked itself, check with process explorer what is the running folder. Copy that folder (that contains the .inf files + drivers) to a safe location and abort the installer. When you exit the installer it will remove the unpacked folder, but you can use the copy to use the Windows device manager manual install process.

                vbaderks,

                Thanks for the suggestion, it helped me get closer. I was able to use process monitor to determine where the extracted files were located and then copy them prior to deletion. I then used Device Manager to update the driver and browsed to the location.

                 

                 

                I have the DG965WH board.

                 

                Not sure about this yet (getting no sound):

                • Audio: IDT* 92XX Driver

                 

                 



                And I still have a yellow ! bang in Device Manager:

                • Other devices. Unknown device on Intel(R) ICH8DH LPC Interface Controller - 2812
                  \ACPI\AWY0001
                  \Device\0000005b

                 

                 



                I used the Vista 64bit drivers on Server 2008 R2 (Home Server 2011) and they appear to be working fine:

                • LAN: Intel® PRO Network Connections Driver for Intel® Desktop Boards for Windows Vista*

                  I was able to find the correct Intel audio driver using the above manual procedure. But still stuck on the driver for Intel ICH8DH LPC Interface Controller - 2812.

                    geogherkins

                    Found a tip elsewhere on the forums, to get rid of the Device Manager yellow "bang" error on the ICH8DH LPC controller, go into BIOS and disable the Intel Quick Resume Technology setting.
