My new NUC8I3BEH will arrive in 2 days. I have downloaded the Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC8i3BEH_Win10-64_Drivers.20190513 and the Intel Driver and Support Assistant Installer.
a) install the Intel Driver and Support Assistant Installer first and let it download and install drivers initially for me
b) manually install drivers from the Drivers.20190513 zip file initially and then install the driver support assistant afterward to use for future driver updates
If the correct answer is option b, is there a specific recommended order for driver installation?
Hi @bctf1 ,
Thank you Doc and Leon for your replies. Even though Intel DSA is more convenient, I think I will follow the manual installation option detailed by Leon unless I am convinced otherwise.
I too, like Leon, manually install my drivers. I really only run IDSA if I am trying to help someone with a specific issue (which isn't very often).
Leon is correct; you need to install the Chipset Device and Intel Management Engine (ME) software packages first, as other driver packages have dependencies on them. Install the Chipset Device software package first. When it asks you to reboot, choose no. Next, install the Intel ME software package. You want to reboot after this completes; if it asks for a reboot, tell it to proceed. If it doesn't ask, however, do one manually yourself.
Leon is also correct regarding the other packages; they can be installed in any order and you only need a single reboot once all of them have been installed. Along the way, if any of the installers ask for a reboot, choose no. You only need one after the last of the packages have been installed.
Hope this helps,
P.S. Joe Coleman?
