    Just installed 64 bit version of windows 8.1 pro as I really don't like the privacy setting on windows 10.
    99% of the windows drivers work perfectly. However has anyone managed to get any official windows 8.1 drivers for this chip set?

    The ones that don't work so far are drivers.jpg

    Its all fun.

    Thanks Villa for a quick reply! Windows 10 installs perfect and I don't have a driver issue.
    This is WINDOWS 8.1 PRO I took off windows 10 as I really need version 8.1
    As I said before most of the digital signed windows 10 drivers work on 8.1 just need a these ones that don't x64 bit 8.1

    Thanks so much newbie99; managed to install another 3 still missing drivers a few more that did not work ;)
    Would be be great if Intel did a generic update for 8.1. few refuse to start.

    I reset my Z83-4 and did a fresh install of windows 10 and now there is no Audio. The audio icon in the task bar is X out and you can't even select a default audio device. In the device manager there isn't even a Sound, Game and Display option to load drivers.
    From the research I've done I think I need to enable sound in the bios or something like that. Can you help me and direct me to a solution of what the problem could be. Thanks

    Thanks. I saw that post already and downloaded the drivers earlier. I'm just not that computer savvy and didn't know how to load them. Hope I did it right...it worked so assume so.
    Here's what I did. 1. Downloaded the drivers. 2. Extracted the zip file. 3. manually dragged and dropped the drivers into C:Windows\System32\Drivers 4. Went to device Manager and right clicked on the "Unknown Devices" (there were 4 of them), and selected update install drivers 5. Instead of searching for drivers, selected the other option to point it to the right path...the drivers folder.
    Repeat for all unknow devices....It all works now.
    Thanks :)

    I am also trying to use Windows 8 pro, and running in to a few problems.

    I have followed all the links and used the w10 and Intel drivers. Also turned off signed drivers and done the bios update.

    1. Intel serial io grip controller (the driver may be corrupt or missing. code 39)
    2. As a result of 1. I think that's why the audio won't start.
    3. The WiFi if not even detected so cannot use the drivers. I really need an installer.

    If anyone else has got a bit further please let me know :)

    The drivers should work, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Well i am 99% drivers installed on windows 8.1 Pro.

    Works like a dream also found some very useful updates on the HP drivers page!


    Download driver chipset : Intel IO/Video/Audio/Camera Driver Pack : 113896 Rev.A 222.3 MB Apr 14, 2016

    Then do a windows update and look all now working!!

    Including bluetooth and network :)

    Dear super buzz
    My z83-4 win 8.1 pro x64 has 99% working drivers except for broadcom 802.11ac wdi sdio adapter ( wifi card ).
    I successfully installed driver version 1.605.0 from Biostar store but the driver cannot be loaded: error code 39, status 0x%0, driver missing or corrupted. Do you have driver for this device?
