    I am not sure exactly which section should be in but will try here first apologies if I am wrong

    I have a Asus TUF Z370 gaming pro motherboard & when it comes to installing the chipset drivers from the asus site I get a fatal error during installation image is attached of the error

    why is this ?
    how can I fix & get the latest version of the drivers installed ?

    I contacted scan.co.uk who I got the board from they cant help they said the error is to vague & specific & said to contact asus which I have done I am waiting on a reply but wanted to ask here also to see if i can get a quicker reply & fix

    Have you tried the drivers on Intel's site?

    Also any pending restarts? The install might be failling because windows is already trying to install a version of the driver in the bg [which it has a habit of doing, esp if it's a fresh install].

    not sure If I have tried the ones from the intel site do you have a exact link so I can try & be sure ?

    no pending restarts

    if by fresh install you mean a fresh install of windows then no still the installation from the upgrade ages ago when they was offering windows 10 for free at the begining

    You most likely need a fresh install...

    come from i think windows 8 was a free upgrade from that so I don't have a windows 10 disc as it was the free upgrade but I am currently trying to make a bootable usb memory stick of windows 10 so will try a fresh install if i don't get a reply soon

    but I wouldn't mind a exact link to the most up to date chipset drivers for my board from the intel site itself as suggested by redflames above I have looked on the intel site but its vague & hard to understand or find anything on there for me

    and also would like to know if someone can tell me how to check what ones are currently installed

    You don't need to worry about getting them from Intel. The one on ASUS' site is the same thing.

    I did encounter a problem along the way which I fixed after a quick panic & a google search on my phone about when drives are of gpt partition or something which I fixed by typing in some commands in a black window win key+F10 while on the windows setup menus quite please with myself I worked that one out quite quickly
