    I though the latest drivers for FF10 / Creative were 6.0.8703.1. What is the source of 6.0.9132.1?

    Obviously there is no oficial source.

    In \Config folder you'll find the catalogs with version numbers where the files were taken from (HDA for 32-bit, HDX for 64-bit).

    Sorry, don't have time for that (finishing some things) and I don't have any of blocked cards, so it'd be more complicated.

    Yeah, no problem. If you ever do get the time or availability I'm available for testing.
    Alternatively, if you could give me some hints to better analyse this issue, I'd highly appreciate it.

    I can confirm that these ported Intel RST driver works well even with Windows 10 setup engine in Windows 7 PE with autounattended.

    I'm integrating bunch of drivers from MassStorage DriverPack to get universal setup media and I found some IRST drivers (Intel IRST 7.0.0.1020_rst, 7.8.0.1012_rst, 8.9.8.1005_TWEAK, 10.1.0.1008_rst, 10.5.2.1010_rst, 11.2.0.1006_TWEAK) can break autounattended when using mentioned mechanism to get ESD support in Windows 7.

    But these ones works without problem. Good job, thanks for them!

    This needs to get unified with the usb stack in a sticky thread, imo. :)

    Vista has a serious unresolved issue with timers when running on Haswell and later Intel systems.
    Even the 32-bit version doesn't work properly, despite not having issues with services failing to load.

    While it might work better on AMD systems, user base doesn't justify any work to support it.

    Sadly AMD drivers has some kind of block that gives BSOD when installing on Server 2012 RTM. These drivers work otherwise perfectly on my ThinkPad E590. I would patch the AMD drivers if I had the skills...

    Im aware of that as i was one of the first testers of this issue back in 2016 with skylake(u can check on msfn), a recent update fixed the timers quite a bit, what i really want to know is, will these work on vista which im unsure of since your answer didnt really tell me much :(, I also have the extended kernel which could possibly help out a bit in this case.Anyone i suppose ill just give it a shot and see how it goes.

    It sounded like you're asking me to add Vista support.
    Anyway, none of these drivers work on Vista with official updates so please keep discussions about Vista out of this thread.
