Well on my Y570 all the drivers are there and I wouldn't believe otherwise in your case too
Why don't you open the drivers folder and applications folder and post a screenshot of them both so I could have al ook and tell you if anything is missing
Also, if I were you, I would not install the Intel Chipset Drivers, the Intel Rapid Storage Drivers, or the Intel Management components from the original folder as those are outdated
You can get the latest Intel drivers here: http://forums.pctweakers.net/showthread.php/34-Latest-Intel-Drivers
PS: You don't NEED the Intel Turbo Boost Monitor, that is just to display the CPU speed but it will overclock using turbo Boost even without that utility, so only download the first 3

1) IRST = Intel Rapid Storage Technology, this is essential for enhanced performance/power management features for your HDD//SSD
Correct Order of installing drivers thread
2) Yes pick the editiion which came with your notebook so you can activate legally
