Windows 7: Chipset drivers for intel E7525

Chipset drivers for intel E7525

Hi all,

I have a Dell workstation (Precision 670) with a single Xeon Irwindale 3.4 GHz and I installed windows 7 x64. I am ok with all of my devices, some drivers are windows 7, my wireless adaptor is a vista driver that works fine, and the rest are Microsoft generic (chipset etc). I tried to intsall the latest intel inf using -OVERWRITE but it didn't update anything from the E7525 related devices. I know this chipset is old but its the first time that a Windows 7 instalation gives me worst benchmarks compared to XP even with generic chipset drivers.

Anyway the thing I would like to ask is if anyone knows in what OS did they stop the support for E7525, so if it is Vista I could try to use the Vista drivers in some way... Intel gives no info, they just have one single file for 5 OS's and 40 chipsets and if it installs it installs.... LAME!

Windows 7, 64 bit Home SP1, Win 8.1.1 Pro 64 bit

Usually whatever chipset drivers Windows installs works without problems. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell users forum and we didn't see any problems caused by chipset drivers on Dell PC's.

Thanks firebird. I managed to update only the Intel 82801 PCI Bridge driver by using an "up to vista" intel INF utility. It seems like E7525 is up to XP... Also updated my Intel PRO 100 MT the same way more or less (vista / early 7 era installer). Big deal you may say but two generic drivers less
