Installing the Chipset Driver

Scenarios

Chipset is a mainboard driver for Windows. If this driver is not installed, other hardware drivers may be undermined in performance or even fail to work properly.

NOTE:

Chipset can only be installed for Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016. This section uses Windows Server 2016 as an example. You can install chipset for Windows Server 2012 using the same method.

Procedure

  1. Decompress onboard_driver_win2k16.iso in section Preparations and obtain SetupChipset.exe from folder chipset_10.1.2.86_public.
  2. Convert the chipset installation package into a folder.
    1. Click Start, enter cmd in Search programs and files, and press Enter.
    2. Enter the directory where the chipset installation package is installed, for example, D:\windows2016\tmp.
      D:\windows2016\tmp>dir
      2018/04/08    17:25    <DIR>          .
      2018/04/08    17:25    <DIR>          ..
