My System Specs


Hey le2key, I just did a WHS2011 build on an ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe (specs in sig). Most of the win7 driver install packages from Asus wouldn't work for me on this board either.

I downloaded some of the chipset drivers etc. directly from Intel and was able to install them. I was also able to install some of the Asus drivers by going into device manager, update driver and then manually selecting the drivers rather than running the install packages. Between those two methods i was able to install all of the drivers I needed. Also, like Perineum says, an SSD is great for a WHS boot drive. WHS "requires"a 160GB+ boot drive, but you can find tutorials on how to bypass this.
