I have a fresh Win 7 Pro x64 FIN installation on a HP Pavilion Elite 515sc. I want the smart media slots to work so I am trying to install chipset drivers for my computer. I have tried the drivers listed on HP's site for my model, and I have tried the drivers Intel's hardware detection tool downloads for me automatically. Both will result in an incomplete installation which presents with a BSOD.

All available updates from Microsoft Update have been applied, along with the latest Catalyst drivers for my Radeon.

Minidump attached.

Fixed by installing latest driver from Realtek for my Ethernet adapter. After that, chipset installation went through without issues.
