    Hi All!

    after clean re-install Windows 10 cannot find some drivers - audio and network among them (see screenshot). I could not find any link in Minix page to download drivers from. Does somebody know where to find them? Thank you in advance!

    Greetings from Lithuania!

    May I know why did you do that?...o_O

    The complete driver package is very large, so please let us know the exact kinds of drivers that you don't have right now.

    Here are the necessary drivers after a clean installation:
    http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=Z83-4_device_drivers_Win10_64bit.rar

    Please note that Intel HD graphics driver is not included in this package.
    It's too large and should have built inside Windows' default drivers already.
    Latest version we found is 15.40.34.4624
    Date: 4/4/2017
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/do...6176/eng/GFX_WIN7_8.1_10_64_15.40.34.4624.zip

    Also, be reminded that you need to manually put the NVRAM file to the Windows drivers folder:

    I decided to update to Windows Anniversary edition and during update process got message about lack of free space to do it (required 20 Gb free space and computer had around 15 Gb - it's right after unboxing). So went for clean re-install with new edition as most time efficient way (I thought then:))

    Ken, thank you for fast reply!

    I installed all drivers from the link you post. Everything looks fine except for network driver. It says it cannot start - see pictures bellow. Please help:)

    You did not read the readme.txt in the WIRELESS folder I guess,
    go read it, please.

    readme.jpg

    "Put the "4345r6nvram.txt" NVRAM document under the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers

    Then restart the computer to take effect.
    "

    Please also make sure your BIOS is the most updated:

    If you spend a few minutes on the forum, you wouldn't have to do it, at all.
    http://minixforum.com/threads/updating-windows-10-from-version-1511-to-1607.14035/

    Microsoft fixed the "20GB" problem with the latest tool,
    I've created a thread to inform you guys.

    Also, it could be updated via Windows update now, without using any tool.

    That WORKS! Thank you very much for fast and professional support!

    Now all drivers are functioning. And even Mobile Hot Spot started to work (on pre-installed Z83-4 this function was not available - probably because I did not followed the advise to put 4345r6nvram.txt in right place)

    Actually it's because you updated to the anniversary version.
    By the way, don't forget this if you are going to cut off power all the time/randomly.

    Hi Ken,
    I've installed the latest driver you linked, and everything seems fine. However audio driver are still 2015 something.
    I see the STK1A32SC has similar spec to our beloved z83-4; as the chipset is the same, is it possible also SOC drivers works (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/it...el-elaborazione-Stick-STK1A32SC?product=91064 )?

    edit: I downloaded the package, and compared to the complete driver package you linked above.
    Audio driver is newer in Intel package, but I2C driver is newer in Minix package.

    Comparison table based on .inf informations:

    UART: Intel 05/21/2015,604.10146.2653.391 - Minix 01/19/2016,604.10586.3042.11470
    SPI: Intel 06/01/2015,604.10146.2657.947 - Minix 06/01/2015,604.10586.3046.947
    PMIC: Intel 09/30/2015,604.10146.2656.7129 - Minix 09/30/2015,604.10586.3045.7129
    MBI: Intel 05/26/2015,604.10146.2655.573 - Minix 09/24/2015,604.10586.3044.6883
    I2C: Intel 10/12/2015,604.10146.2654.7394 - Minix 02/18/2016,604.10586.3043.12813
    GPIO: Intel 07/15/2015,604.10146.2652.3930 - Minix 02/18/2016,604.10586.3040.12819
    Audio RTII2SAC: Intel 10/30/2015,6.4.10147.534 - Minix 04/21/2016,10.0.10586.4420
    Audio ISSTRTC: Intel 01/12/2016,604.10135.2747.11324 - Minix 08/09/2015,604.10135.2747.5232

    Maybe this night I'll try to update ISSTRTC driver only.

    Hello Minix

    I would like to say that I love this device! It fast and does the job. I have however one little problem. That is when I start the device and the first sound comes out of my speakers, I hear a plop soun (it also happens when I pause music and play it after a minute or so).
    I think I only had it after a clean install of windows (however I am not sure that it wasn't there before). Does that sound familier? And is this a driver problem.

    Thanks

    Th0ckx
