    Hi

    I have a Asus p5k-e wifi.

    Asus doesn't have any w7 drivers on site.

    Search intel site with no sucess.

    the answer is: where can I get windows 7 p35 drivers?

    is it ok to use the default drivers installed during w7 instalation.

    I'm noticing that game performance as dropped 15/20% from win vista 32 with asus onsite drivers .

    any help is aprettiated,

    tks

    Hi,

    Windows 7 Drivers haven't been released yet and probably minimal ones will. Just use the Vista drivers for the piece of hardware and you should be fine...

    You dont need these drivers, newest one are already build in win7.
    I got x48 chipset based mobo and these drivers from intel site did nothing on win7.
    Anyway the only more recent drivers are for ahci or raid.

    The Intel drivers are newer AND better. You just have to install with the -overall switch and it will install the drivers.

    The intel chipset drivers are a lot better in terms of memory management and allocation. The AHCI/RAID drivers are also needed to up the performance of your SATA bus.

    Make a shortcut to the executable program and go into properties. Check the path that the shortcut is running (e.g "C:\notepad.exe") then add the - overall command (e.g "C:\notepad.exe" -overall).

    List of override command switches for setup.exe from intel chipset package :
    Code:
    Flag        Description
    ----            -----------
    -?              
                    Displays the list of available command line 
                    flags. This flag works in Interactive Mode only.  
    
    -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.
    
    -AONLY          
                    Extracts the needed INF files to install on the
                    current system. If the install has been run once
                    successfully, '-AONLY' will not return any INFs
                    when used in conjunction with '-OVERALL' switch, 
                    all the needed INFs for the system will be 
                    extracted.
    
    -B              
                    Automatically reboots the system after 
                    installation. This flag is ignored if '-A' flag
                    is specified. This flag works in either Silent 
                    Mode or Interactive Mode.
    
    -F2 <path\filename>             
                    Specifies an alternate location and name 
                    of the log file created by InstallShield Silent.
                    This option is used for silent installation from
                    a CD. 'Path' indicates the directory path where
                    installation status is logged in file 'filename'.
    
    -L <number>    
                    Specifies the language of the setup dialogs. 
                    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.
    
    -NOLIC          
                    Does not display the license agreement dialog box during
                    installation. This parameter works in Interactive
                    Mode only.
    
    -NOREAD         
                    Does not display the Readme display during installation. 
                    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.
    
    -NOWEL          
                    Does not display the welcome screen during installation. 
                    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.
    
    -OVERALL       
                    Updates ALL INF drivers on all available devices
                    even if third party drivers are currently installed. 
                    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.
    
    -OVERIDE
                    Updates the storage drivers even if a third
                    party storage driver is currently installed. 
                    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.
    
    -OVERWRITE       
                    Ignores the overwrite warning dialog when 
                    installing an older version of the software.
    
    -P<Installation Path>   
                    Specifies the hard disk location to which the 
                    INF program files are copied. If this flag is 
                    not specified at the command line, the 
                    <Installation Path> directory is as follows: 
                    
                       C:\Program Files\Intel\INFInst
                    
                   If this flag is used without the '-A' option, 
                   only the Readme will be copied to 
                   <Installation Path>. The directory name can 
                   include spaces, but then a pair of double quotes 
                   (") must enclose the directory name. There should
                    not be any space between the switch '-p' and the 
                    directory name. This flag works in either Silent 
                    Mode or Interactive Mode.
    
    -S              
                    Runs the Installer in Silent Mode (no user 
                    interface is displayed). This flag and the
                    '-L' flag must be placed at the end of the 
                    command line flag list.
                    
    Below are the language codes used with the '-L' flag:
    
    <number>     Language            
     ------------------
       0401       Arabic (International)

       041F       Turkish      
    
    I always use setup.exe -overide -overall

    Updates ALL INF drivers on all available devices
    even if third party drivers are currently installed.
    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    Updates the storage drivers even if a third
    party storage driver is currently installed.
    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    Hope it helps.

    This is good stuff, but does it only work on the setup.exe file? The file linked to above is the compressed .exe from the Intel site. Will it work on that or do we have to unzip that (or the .zip version) to get to the setup.exe file?

    Thanks!

    Oh, thanks. Just update it. I always search for an INF update that can update on Win7, don't know it would be this easy, sigh.

    This update doesn't update most of important drivers by normal. You'll need -overall flag to update them as PrEzi suggests.

    I tried it. It work on that compressed file.

    Decompress the file with Winrar or 7zip (or you can just run it and look for the decompressed files in the temp directory).
    The switches must be applies to the (decompressed) setup.exe not the packaged exe itself.

    Out of curiosity, if you use the overide (override?) switch, what happens to third-party drivers that I might have installed?

    In particular, graphics card drivers. Hardware accelerated vendor drivers are usually better than Windows' software-driven default drivers.

    Does the Intel installer ignore these types of INF files?

    'overIDE' switch will override any third party drivers (like the ones that come with Win7 from microsoft preinstalled) and install intel ones on top of them.
    It only concerns IDE/ATA/ATAPI controllers - so don't worry.
    They won't touch the gpu or other drivers.
    Remember that to have the 'full combo' you need also intel Matrix Storage drivers for any Intel SATA/AHCI/RAID controllers.
    Also if you have a turbo memory module - the turbo memory driver (robson) is required.
