Universal Windows* drivers
This release includes Universal Windows Drivers support for Windows® 10 version 1709 (RS3).
A Universal folder has been added to the Windows 10 driver packages. The Universal folder contains the driver package used for upgrading existing Universal Windows drivers for Windows 10 version 1709 (RS3).
Note: Only the Intel® Ethernet Adapter Complete Driver Pack download contains Universal Windows Drivers.
This zip file contains all of the Intel® Ethernet network drivers and software for currently supported versions of Windows*, Linux*, and FreeBSD* for most Intel® Ethernet Adapters. Not all Intel® Ethernet Adapters and Intel® Ethernet Controllers are supported under every version of Windows, Linux, or FreeBSD.
This is a large file. We recommend downloading smaller files for your operating system if you do not need software for every OS.
See the readme file for installation instructions, supported hardware, what's new, bug fixes, and known issues.

Windows® 10 updates may cause driver installation issues
This issue is resolved in Microsoft Hot Fix*. See the Microsoft Support sites:
- Cumulative Update for Windows 10: March 8, 2016
- Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 and Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4: March 1, 2016
Early Windows 10 updates may cause driver installs to time out or fail due to extended wait time (up to 4 minutes per Ethernet port). In most cases, despite the timeout, the driver installs correctly and is usable.
If the driver does not install correctly, retry the installation process. Intel® PROSet for Windows* Device Manager relies on correctly installed drivers. This issue has not been observed when using the initial Release to Market (RTM) version of Windows 10.
While executing iSCSI boot procedure, OS may crash during last stage of Windows Server 2008 R2* installation on iSCSI LUN using release 20.7 drivers.
If you use release 20.7 drivers during OS install to iSCSI LUN using Intel® XL710 for iSCSI connection, deployment of Windows Server 2008 R2 from an installation server or media may be terminated by crash after first platform reboot from WinPE* environment when using iSCSI boot procedure.

Note: No web browser is associated with the launched files. If you use Autorun.exe on the CD to launch the install in Windows Server Core, clicking the buttons to View User Guides or Networking at Intel will result in a Windows error message.
