Windows* 7 with Intel® Atom™ Processor Z6xx-based Platforms: Guide
This document provides guidance for installing Windows* 7 and Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating systems on platforms based on the Intel® Atom™ processor Z670/Z650 with Intel® SM35 Express chipset. This document also gives step-by-step instructions on where to download the chipset, I2C, wireless, and graphics driver package from Intel and how to properly install the GMA600 graphics and chipset drivers from Intel under the aforementioned Microsoft operating systems.
The information in this document has been validated with the Intel® Customer Reference Board, codenamed ‘Alpine Bay’, which is included in the Intel Atom processor Z670/Z650 with Intel SM35 Express chipset Development Kit. However, the recommendations in this quick start guide are applicable to any Intel platform integrating the Intel Atom processor Z670/Z650 paired with Intel SM35 Express chipset (codenamed ‘Oak Trail’) and based on Windows 7 or Windows Embedded Standard 7.
For customers evaluating or using the Development Kit as a basis for their embedded design, and Windows 7 or Windows Embedded Standard 7 as their operating system, this document is the primary guidance Intel provides for installing the drivers and operating system to deliver optimized performance.
Three additional and crucial components are common in an Intel Atom processor Z670/Z650 with Intel SM35 Express chipset design: one or two ranks of DDR2-800 memory devices, an embedded controller (the Nuvoton* NPCE791EA0DX is highly recommended), and a Power Management IC solution.
