Intel driver from 1968? Solved

    Intel driver from 1968?

    Planning on replacing my current system. The new system is:

    MB: Asus Prime Z370-A
    CPU: Intel i5-8400
    Memory: 16 GB GSkill DDR4
    HD: 2x M.2 Samsung 960 EVO NVMe PCIe (x4), Samsung 250GBs SATA SSD

    That's about all, the BIOS is the latest available from Asus.

    Created a Windows 10 USB drive on my current system, by following instruction here:

    Booted the new system to the USB and set up Windows Professional 64-bit. After the install, the first order of business is to update Windows. It did commence as expected, but there were some weird updates for Intel going by. After the reboot, this what the installed update shows:

Name:	updates applied2.png 
Views:	3 
Size:	59.2 KB 
ID:	174559

    And yes, the date and time is correct in the BIOS and in Windows.

    The system seems to be running just fine, but prior to entering the license key...

    Should Windows install given an other go, or just remove the Intel drivers from 1968?

    I'm sure it's just a Typo :)

    Personally I don't like those Intel updates, no description, and as you see 2 of yours are listed .44

    As far as the Removal Tool goes,, I could take it or leave it, I have never ever used it once, with W7 or 10.

    According to intel ...

    “Intel(R) Chipset Device Software uses an unusual date for the devices it is targeting. The date 07/18/1968 is symbolic – Intel was founded that day. The reason this date is used is to lower the rank of Intel(R) Chipset Device Software.This is necessary because it’s a supporting utility that should not overwrite any other drivers. Updating Intel(R) Chipset Device Software is not needed."

    Thanks guys/gals....

    So, the drivers are fine as they are, no need to remove/reinstall them. Will it cause issues in the near/later future?

    Hey Cr00zng,
    Yea, should be fine, but I'd check your motherboards site for the latest drivers. If I'm looking at the right motherboard listed in your specs, they have ... Intel INF [] 2.67 MB 2015/07/07
