Why can't I install the New Drivers for my I7 9700K?


Trying to install specifically the latest driver update as well as Intel Control Panel on my new PC Build, I get the following error: "This Processor does not meet the minimum Requirements to install" or I get the pasted screenshot error from Intel Control Panel.


The newest Drivers for the 9th Gen Drivers are also DCH Drivers only and you CANNOT install the Zipped version for an I7 9700K.


My chip-set series is 300 and MOBO supports the CPU. It's a Asus Rog Strix Z 370 E Gaming with 1601 BIOS. Windows 64bit Pro.

Any other ways on getting this updated? I try running Intel Support Assist tool as well and states that my Processor is up to date.

Even though my processor Driver date states 4/21/2009.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
