  • The installer (full install) create new dir structure
    Browse your Program files dir.
    \Program Files
    - - \Intel
    - - - \ANS
    - - - \DMIX
    - - - - - \Hlp
    - - - - - \Ressource
    - - - - - \uninst
    - - - \NCS2
    - - - - - \Agent
    - - - - - \WMIProv
    and install is logged in
  • The driver only install does not produce any log file.

for both installs:

Just go to device manager and check the driver version & date

  • Intel® PRO/1000 Gigabit Adapters E1000NT5.SYS DriverVer = 09/15/2004,
  • Intel® PRO Network Adapter e100b325.sys DriverVer = 08/19/2004,

Check this registry branch


Install = Success

means you have successfully installed / updated your driver.

i'm using your driverpacks..

lan, mass storage and sound..

and that is working great.  :thumbup

But i'm missing the utilities, and i want them installed..if it's possible

if it's not... no disaster  :P

The utilities are not included. Imagine, if I would do add the utilities for every LAN driver... The size would multiply by at least 5... And the work to add them too...

But this does not mean you can't do that yourself. Just download the utility you need. Then make a batch file like this:

IF EXIST %systemroot%\system32\drivername.sys START /WAIT setup.exe

That will do the job.
