Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 250

post #2491 of 3000
I've updated the intel ME firmware on my p8p67 successfully, but what does the ME firmware do anyway? what's the point of updating?

I've updated from 7.0.4.1197 > 7.1.20.1119

SimpleTech, How do you update the intel chipset drivers?

Simply install the downloaded installer. When updating these drivers, you don't need to uninstall that's why there's no Intel Chipset Driver in the uninstall list in control panel. I've read about this in Google some time ago.

Hope that helps.

What I do is this:
  1. Right-click the .exe and make a shortcut of it.
  2. Open up the shortcut and under Target add -overall to the very end.
  3. Run the shortcut with admin privileges.
  4. It should overwrite all of the previous driver entries and update with whatever is the newest.

Note that this only works with their INF Update Utility.

How is this method different from the usual method of just installing with the .exe included with the download?

The usual method doesn't override any of the driver entries and sometimes won't update to the latest version.

I don't know, I've been doing it for years and never had a problem with it.

Hmmm, really? What made you say that it doesn't update it? I reckon reading directly from Intel's website or so that it does overwrite the files to the latest version when you install it with the executable file included with the package.
