    Hi,

    This {null} section is not due to your upgrade to Windows 11, but it is because you have chosen the sort method by Device Name (while the default sort method is by Driver Class).

    Note that some drivers, despite being used by your system, will never have the Device Name field filled in (like Extensions drivers for example), or the Device Name will have field filled in only if the device is present and connected, so do not rely on this to know if your drivers are useful for your system or not. So generally speaking, don't remove any drivers manually unless you know exactly what you're doing.

    The only safe action that you can take on a regular basis is the action of remove the automatic selection of old unused drivers (Click on the Select Old Driver(s) button > Check the box Force Deletion then click on the Delete Driver(s) button > Restart your PC), but be aware that this automatic method does not apply it to the Storage controllers drivers & System devices drivers for safety reasons (to avoid any situation where a system start is no longer possible), so for these drivers categories the removal of old unused drivers must be done manually (again, only if you know exactly what you are doing).


    So concretely, concerning your Driver Store Explorer screenshot, you can delete lms driver (which is no longer used by Intel MEI drivers as I have explained several times) and the prnms... drivers (which are generic printers system built-in drivers which will be redownloaded automatically later by Windows Update if you use a printer that does not use its own drivers, which is rarely the case). The ialpss2... drivers are part of your Intel Serial IO drivers package (GPIO, I2C, SPI & UART), which your system uses only the GPIO module driver obviously, so if you are sure that you have not disabled the other Intel Serial IO modules devices in your Device Manager, you can remove the I2C, SPI & UART unused modules drivers (but there is no "need" to remove them, it's just to be into your logic to have a DriverStore containing only drivers used by your system which I understand perfectly).

    Hey mokichu, I don't understand if I need intel DAL/ICLS/LMS (now WMI).

    DAL looks like it's something about run java code, LMS and WMI probably for remote management. About ICLS instead I didn't find anything. What do I lose by only installing heci.inf?

    Hi,

    Already answered many times : If you don't install the imposed DAL, ICLS & WMI SWC drivers, Windows Update will install them for you with older versions because the install order of these SWC drivers is initied/imposed by Intel MEI driver itself.

    Yes I knew about this, but if I do "rollback driver" after these older versions get installed then windows update won't download them again. At least on windows 11 dev build.

    Is there any downside?

    Yeah, not intended by Intel but I'm confident I can disable DAL and WMI for what they are supposed to do.

    Really confused about iCLS. When installed there's a "TPM provisioning service" running for a few seconds when you enter the operating system, but if I don't have iCLS my tpm 2.0 works anyways. Is there any documentation about it?

    Hi,

    You need these firmware/drivers for your ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) motherboard :

    [FIRMWARE] Intel ME (Z390)

    [DRIVERS] Intel Chipset/MEI/SATA/VMD (1xx/2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx)

    - Intel Chipset Drivers

    - Intel MEI Drivers (Drivers Only)

    - Intel SATA AHCI-RAID Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 2xx/3xx

    [DRIVERS] Intel Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth

    - Intel Ethernet Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - I21x-V (1.0GbE)

    - Intel WiFi Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 9xxx/AX2xx

    - Intel Bluetooth Drivers (Drivers Only) :
    Drivers - 8xxx/9xxx/AX2x0

    [DRIVERS] Realtek Audio (MB | Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx & AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx)

    You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard, so :

    You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB) from the first post of the thread.

    Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.
