    Hi,

    How important/helpful would it be to update the following drivers:

    Intel(R) 82801EB Ultra ATA Storage Controller
    Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
    Intel(R) 82801EB USB2 Enhanced Host Controller 24DD
    Intel(R) 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller 24D7
    Intel(R) 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller 24D4
    Intel(R) 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller 24D2

    I find trying to find these drivers at Intel very difficult, & very scary! If someone could help me find these, a 1000 thank yous would be given. Also see pic:

    Note I just finished the scanner driver update. Geez what a pain that was. Also any secrets for successful install would generate, another 1000 thank yous. I would presume for the above Intel drivers, all tray items should be shutdown?

    Special consideration PG 3.410 should it be in learning mode, or disabled. PG only disables a little bit.

    Also for other brave heart lovers of 1's & 0's. You can find out what drivers you need to upgrade at:

    Thank You
    rico

    ps that's one free thank you, out of 2001 possible

    Intel Pro/100 VE - http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=407
    All the others should be contained in the chipset driver. Doing a quick search for the info you have, the chipset appears to be an Intel 875P - http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=816 - don't install this unless you're sure that's the chipset you have, though.

    And yes, you will want to disable PG, it has a tendancy to botch driver installs if you just put it in learning mode, IME.

    Hello Messrs Notok, WSFuser,

    I'm well 50% sure the is the correct Network Connection - see pic:

    Should this install go South on me, can I get back to the old one, and how?

    Thank You
    rico

    ps Does it make any difference that this is a Sony, which is very proprietary?

    Looks like I might have been wrong about the chipset, although there's not much info about your motherboard listed.. is it an OEM system (brand name, such as Sony)? If you want to be absolutely sure you can find the chipset with this utility.

    WSFUser: I found a forum posting mentioning the 865 chipset, but nothing official.. did you find something better?

    That driver installer supports several different chipsets, though (which you can see in the Release Notes). The list is of different versions, with the latest being on the top. If something does happen to the driver install, you should be able to restore last known good configuration, although having a drive image would always be safest. You may also want to check the OEM website for drivers, if applicable.

    Hi Guys

    Yes I found the 865. I printed from Intel. "Installing the windows xp inf files after OS installation"

    At step 12 - I'm to choose one of the following:

    Right-click on the line containing the description

    PCI standard host CPU bridge
    or
    PCI standard ISA bridge
    or
    PCI standard PCI-toPCI bridge
    or
    PCI System Mgt. Bus
    or
    Standard Dual PCI IDE controller
    or
    Standard Universal PCI to USB Controller
    (This line will be selected)

    I'm thinking the winner is: PCI standard host CPU bridge, See pic.

    There is not an exact match to Intel's verbage.

    Also I will not proceed til I run that app Notok suggested & will post back.

    Thanks

    The first choice is the one you want. The others are older versions of the same thing.

    Hi Guys,

    First Intel(R) pro/100 VE upgrade went smooth, otherwise I would not be typing this now. Whew! When the file extracted, it unzipped to c:\intel10.3. I used autorun.exe to install. Rico's proud. Then thinking this was just a folder for unzipping. I deleted the folder. Big mistake, tried going online & failed, not only that lost control of the computer. Hard shutdown, reboot & recover Intel10.3 folder from the recycle bin, & all is well.

    Notok - I'm not quite sure what you mean by the first one?

    Intel's installation step 11 "click on PCI Bus"

    From Intel's installation instructions (post #9, & this post) step #12 "PCI standard host CPU bridge." Is this what you mean by first choice? And which one is it in the pic.?

    PCI standard host CPU bridge, is this, "Intel(R) 82801EB PCI Bridge -244e" from the pic. [COLOR="Yellow[COLOR="Red"]"]If this is confusing, said another way[/COLOR]:[/COLOR]

    Intel step 12 Lists the following:

    Right-click on the line containing the description

    PCI standard host CPU bridge
    or
    PCI standard ISA bridge
    or
    PCI standard PCI-toPCI bridge
    or
    PCI System Mgt. Bus
    or
    Standard Dual PCI IDE controller
    or
    Standard Universal PCI to USB Controller
    (This line will be selected)


    I'm supposed to match on of the above to the pic. then right click & choose properties. The six above choices do not match the words in the pic. Hence I'm not sure which to right click in device mgr.? My guess is: PCI standard host CPU bridge matches or I would right click (from pic) Intel(R) 82801EB PCI Bridge -244e.

    Thanks

    Good Morning WSFuser,

    Thank you for your time & virtual hand holding!

    What your last post is describing is:

    ************************************************************
    * 6. INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE IN INTERACTIVE MODE
    ************************************************************
    1. Verify that all system requirements have been met as
    described in Section 2 above.

    2. Run the installation program:
    Self-extracting .EXE distribution: INFINST_AUTOL.EXE
    Compressed .ZIP distribution: SETUP.EXE

    3. You will be prompted to agree to the license agreement.
    If you do not agree, the installation program will exit
    before extracting any files.

    4. Once the operating system reboots, follow the on-screen
    instructions and accept default settings to complete the
    setup.


    As opposed to:

    9B Installing The Windows XP INF files AFTER OS Installation



    So your saying I can use the "Interactive Mode" for install? If this is correct, then is 9B assuming after OS install, the user un-installs the inf then, clean installs the new inf files? Where step 6 "interactive install" is upgrading the exsisting inf files? Interactive seems the easier way to go!

    Thanks
    rico

    Hi!

    Regarding 865G chipset update, I tried twice & both times:

    ************************************************************
    * 6. INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE IN INTERACTIVE MODE
    ************************************************************
    1. Verify that all system requirements have been met as
    described in Section 2 above.

    2. Run the installation program:
    Self-extracting .EXE distribution: INFINST_AUTOL.EXE
    Compressed .ZIP distribution: SETUP.EXE

    3. You will be prompted to agree to the license agreement.
    If you do not agree, the installation program will exit
    before extracting any files.

    4. Once the operating system reboots, follow the on-screen
    instructions and accept default settings to complete the
    setup.

    Step #4 did not happen, reboot > no on-screen instructions & could not accept default settings, as there were none!

    Thanks

    Hi

    Also tried 865G chipset update from safemode, & still heard nothing from intel after reboot. Nothing to do or accept.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't worry too much about the exact wording until afterwards. Right now you want to focus on getting infinst_autol.exe to install. Every time I've run this it has immediatly brought up the install wizard and finished the job. My guess is that you have some security software preventing it from running or setting itself to startup. Try disabling any/all security software and try again, make sure scripts can run as well.

    Hello Notok,

    Then the interactive install is ok? I don't understand why they would list interactive insall as one procedure, & another install as after the OS is installed & from dev. mgro_O??

    PG was set to disable, would PG disabled still block a driver install? Looked at PG's alerts & logs & did not find anything.

    Thinking that perhaps a security app. on the reboot may block the driver install. I used MSconfig boot section & chose safe mode, tried the chipset install, the install did not call or reboot, forcing the reboot still no luck.

    Where do I look for scripting, besides IE?

    Note: Security apps. disabled & still disabled on reboot are PG & RegDefend. Other security apps disabled for install, then enabled on the next boot are. Spysweeper 5, ZApro, Nod32. Spyblaster I don't think would block scripting would/could it?

    Also note the correct wording only applies to Step 9B "Installing with OS installed using the device mgr see post 17. Step 6 Interactive install does not care about wording.
