    NEW --- Intel Thunderbolt Software / Driver Version 16.3.61.275 WHQL

    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).

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


    There is also this website offering 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 Reflect Disk Image before attempting it.
