I'm installing Windows on an Asus P5B-E (Intel chipset) and wish to use the most recent drivers available, but I'm having trouble figuring out which chipset download I want.
The original motherboard CD lists the chipset driver as the 'Intel Chipset Inf Update Program', and on the Asus chipset download page for this mobo they have:
Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility V18.104.22.1689 for Windows 32/64bit XP & 32/64bit Vista & 32/64bit Windows 7.(WHQL) Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility V22.214.171.1243 for Windows 2000/XP & 64bit XP & 32/64bit Vista(WHQL). Intel Chipset Inf Update Program v126.96.36.1992 for Windows 2000/XP(WHQL)/2003 & 64bit XP(WHQL)/2003. Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager Driver v188.8.131.522 for Windows 2000/XP/2003 & 64bit XP/2003(WHQL). Intel\MakeDisk -Make Intel ICH8 RAID Driver Disk for Windows 2000/XP/2003 & 64bit XP/2003.
So my question, is the 'Software Installation Utility' a new version of the 'Inf Update Program', or a completely different app? I assumed at first it must be an upgrade, but the inclusion of the RAID and storage manager downloads has made me think perhaps they are different programs?
