A question for the OP, and I don't mean this as sarcasm, but sincere advise.

If you have no clue what you are doing, why are you trying to install an OS all by your self?

You took or will take driving lessons before you drive a car I pressume?

Have someone with the proper knowledge do the installing for you, or at least assist you, talking you through the basics.

We are here to help people with problems, but you can't expect us to run you through the whole process of setting up your system.
We do have lives, well at least some of us.

Next you will need to setup your network, or you run into trouble, and then what?

So, find a nerdy friend or go out and get to know one.

Greetz, and good luck.

PS: There are quite a few nerds in Amsterdam, but they are all under the influence of dubious substances, so I can't really recommend one for you.

Ask yourself this, would you be happy with a generic microsoft driver or one made by the manufacturer of that board which could run better.

Hi, icoola77, it can't be that up to date, because I just tried your download link and this is what I got when it started to install.

Well you must have got hold of the newest one i guess, but on Intel's site the latest one listed is 9.1.1.1019, the one i posted the link to.

However, on Station-Drivers.com they have a newer one that they say is official 9.1.1.1020

http://downloadmirror.intel.com/1088....1.1020_PV.exe

So i guess Intel have not updated their site's download section yet.

If only that were true. Asus has relatively few Win7 drivers available. I have had no difficulty locating them elsewhere, however.
