    Is it worth installing the Intel Chipset drivers in Windows 7, even though they were made for Vista? I don't know if it would help with a file transfer problem I'm having, because Windows must already know what my chipset is.

    Did anyone here bother installing them?

    I installed the ones I felt I needed. I definitely had problems before I got the SMBus drivers installed.

    There wouldn't be any harm from installing it - especially if you have poor hard drive performance (as a couple of people here have fixed that by installing the correct chipset drivers).

    I've installed them on my PC and they work great. :)

    The Intel Windows Vista x64 chipset drivers aren't terribly compatible with 7. In fact, the installer often goes into an error loop if left to do its thing. I'd give them a wide berth for now.

    The SATA/AHCI drivers, on the other hand, work quite nicely, but not if you get them from Intel. I strongly suggest Matrix Storage driver v8.8.0.1009, which is quite a bit ahead of the official Intel release: http://station-drivers.com/page/intel raid.htm

    Pardon the popups.
