Hi ... I have xp pro full with sp2 , I been trying to figure out why when I downloaded this chipset driver fron Intel and go to load this driver that it wouldn't execute , I keep showing a older version , I have try to go into Devise Manager and update from there as well but it still will not work , I would really appreciate if someone could suggest as to where I am going wrong ? Thanks

PS: This is what I am trying to load from Intel website its the first one listed version 6.3.0.1007 and at the moment I have 6.3.0.1005

Did you read the readme.txt file provided by Intel for this upgrade? Most of the Intel updates are done by saving drivers to a diskette and rebooting from the diskette. Please read their instructions first. It will help.

steps to update all Intel® chipset devices not supported
by Windows* XP.

1. Copy the contents of the
<INF Extract Directory>\XXXX\WinXP
directory to the root directory of the floppy disk
(A:\).

NOTE: XXXX is the directory name for the chipset
of interest.


So you would only put the contents of that directory (for whatever you are updating) on the floppy.

That is an executable file (.exe). After you download it you open that file and it will create the directories. Then you copy the .inf file from the directory that is specific to the device you want to update to the floppy and follow the procedure in the readme file.
