Thunderbolt software / driver version 16.3.61.275 (Download links at the end of this post)

NOTE: Uninstall the old Thunderbolt drivers and reboot the laptop before you install the new drivers. Use the Programs and Features option in the Control Panel to do this.

I have been testing this new driver package over the last week and found it to be stable on my G752VL.
My LaCie (STSF2000400) external drive that's Thunderbolt / USB-C has the Intel DSL3510 (Cactus Ridge) Thunderbolt Controller and is seen without any problems when connected to the USB-C port on my G752VL via a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter from Apple.

PLEASE NOTE:
- This is the last software package supporting Thunderbolt 1 and 2 host controllers
- This is the last software package supporting Windows* 7 and 8.1

Supported Operating Systems
===========================
Windows* 7 32-bit
Windows* 7 64-bit
Windows* 8.1 64-bit
Windows* 10 64-bit

Supported Thunderbolt Controllers
=================================
DSL4510/4410 Series - "Redwood Ridge"
DSL5520/5320 Series - "Falcon Ridge"
DSL5110 Series - "Thunderbolt LP"
DSL6540/6340 Series - "Alpine Ridge" (Tested with NVM rev 24)
JHL6540/6340 Series - "Alpine Ridge" (Tested with NVM rev 19)
JHL6240 Series - "Alpine Ridge LP" (Tested with NVM rev 5)

Changes:
========
Version 16.3.61.275
- Added support for Windows* 10 RS2 64-bit.
- Added check-box to each notification not to show it again. This could be reset through the Settings panel.
- Added support for Titan Ridge (JHL7xxx series) devices (dock) firmware update through Alpine Ridge
(DSL6xxx/JHL6xxx series) host controllers.

Version 16.3.59.250
- PD information dependencies removed from SW UI, and replaced by additional support via
SDK & Samples. Refer to Thunderbolt_SDK_Guide.pdf for more information about new methods:
I2CRead, I2CWrite and GetTIPdInfo
- Added new method GetControllerInfo in SDK CMD sample to provide more information on a given
Thunderbolt host controller
- Added user notification when update needed for the Thunderbolt™3 port to function properly.
This notification is triggered when NVM version is less than 16, and applicable to Alpine Ridge
DSL6540/6340 controllers only
- Added support for NonAdmin mode through INF install mode.
This option is not enabled by default and need customized INF/CAT files.
Please contact your Thunderbolt support team for more information
- Disabled QoS notifications to user by default - this can still be enabled through manual registry setting edit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\ThunderboltService\EnableQoSNotifications

Version 16.2.55.275
- Added support for NonAdmin mode through installer switch.
Run setup.msi NONADMIN=1 when installing the Thunderbolt SW package in order to allow user
without administrator privileges to approve devices.
- Changes in MUP to support white space in executable name. Also removed SubVendorId attribute.
- Change in Installer to set AutoConnect mode by default for Thunderbolt Networking connections.
- Fix for QoS misleading popup, including fixed bandwidth calculation and relaxed conditions.
- Fix for WMI registration issue leading to display empty UI (and eventually PCIe enumeration
drop in SL1).

Thoughts ?https://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=Thunderbolt take your pick, I would have no idea which one would be correct for our notebooks?


There is also this website offering (http://semantic.gs/intel_thunderbolt_software_version_16~3~61~275_whq l_driver_v2_download)it. I have no Idea about this site it just came up in a google search for me and you're on your own if you attempt to download and use it. I would definitely create a Macrium Reflec (https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree)t Disk Image before attempting it.
