Intel DX79SI looking for drivers w7/w10 64bits. Apparently Intel does not host them anymore...

My x79-up4 board died a month ago, so I got an Intel DX79Si of EBAY.

I've been looking through Intel’s website and could not find anything else than the latest bios revision.

Looking with waybackmachine
I found the network drivers but that’s about it.

Anyone know where I can acquire a full set of driver or an ISO of the original disc maybe?

Thank you

With Windows 10 at least, most of the drivers should be built-in or available from Windows Update.

Is there something that's not showing as installed in Device Manager?

Pc works fine and seems stable. what is it supposed to be?

Hmm where are you getting that error code? Sounds like maybe something didn't quite go right with the upgrade.

Now that you've done the upgrade though, you should be able to do a clean install of Windows 10 and keep the license. That might fix that error.
