Is there an updated link for this? The site pctweakers.net doesn't exist any more.

Hi! Thanks for the guide! I'm having an issue, though. I just tried to install the first driver (the wireless LAN) and it's giving me an error message that it requires Windows 8. Is there a different driver for Windows 7? Thanks!

You must disable the Program Compatibility Assistant Service as mentioned in the guide! that's why you got that error. Hit CTRL + Run on your keyboard to launch the Run Dialogue Box, then type services.msc  . Now scroll down till you see "Program Compatibility Assistant" , double click on it, Stop the service, then disable it

On a side note, I've updated the guide and reverted back to the official Windows 7 Drivers to prevent any headaches: http://forums.tweakarena.com/showthread.php?p=36
