Windows 7: Installed wrong intel chipset!! D:

Installed wrong intel chipset!! D:

I've accidentally installed a vista chipset instead of Windows 7 one

Afterwards i downloaded and installed a windows 7 version but i dont know if it worked because all i did was click next and didnt really see a install bar or something..

So what do i do now?

I've added a log file of the installation which was created when i installed the chipset.
(at some point it sais deleting Windows 7 chipset or something?!)

please help

Type regedit in the start search box

Once in the Registry Editor expand "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"

Next Expand "SOFTWARE"

Next Expand "INTEL"


Click on "Infinst"

On the right hand side of the screen you will see which Version ..

I don't think you will have any major issues since most Windows Vista drivers work for Windows 7.

Yep Maxie is right. I have a XP chip set driver but it works fine so Vista will most likely be fine.
