Sandy Bridge Driver Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was given a new Intel DH67CL Motherboard but I didn't know what I might use it for.  I decided to use it for a WHS setup as my old stuff was starting to have issues.  So I went out and bought the new I3 2100T (or whatever the low wattage designator is) processor and thougth I would be off to the races.  Now I find that he drivers for this motherboard don't work with WHS.  I don't know what to do.  I can't see myself using it for anything else.  Is this board just a complete waste or do you think there is a workaround for the drivers issue.  I can get everything to work with WHS except for the LAN driver.  If you all know a trick that works I would appreciate it!  Otherwise I have a waste of a board and I will also need to go out and buy a new one since I already bought a processor too!  Ugg.

  • For anybody interested or runs into a similar problem I figured out how to make it work.  Just look up the LAN adapter on it's own.  Don't bother using the motherboard specific drivers. 

    Of course when I used those it said there was no LAN adapter available.  I forced it to install by manually selecting the driver.  Once it installed I then went back and re-did the install using the driver's executable installation file...since it now saw a compatible LAN adapter it installed with no issues.  I'm a happy camper.

  • If you have it all working except the LAN driver, then why not add a LAN
    card to the motherboard for which there are drivers for WHS?

    Also, have you tried the drivers listed here?

    Use the WinXP 32 bit driver for WHS, it might just work.
