For older computer users, if they reinstall the system in the future, they may not be able to find the required driveron on the device’s official website. The chip giant announced that it would remove old driver and BIOS firmware updates from its official website in the coming days, a move that is expected to save several gigabytes of server storage.
According to a statement posted by Intel on a BIOS download page, it will remove the old driver and BIOS from Friday, November 22.
Remove the downloaded old driver sdrive and BIOS for Windows operating systems such as 98, ME, XP, and older Windows server versions that have long ceased to be supported.
Intel isn’t the only hardware vendor to do so, with HP removing end-of-support product drivers in 2017, but companies such as Dell and Lenovo continue to offer device drivers that end-support.
