    Windows 8.1

    Well if only it were that easy.... I didn't anticipate needing a CD/DVD drive because I've been able to get by without one on my laptop. Now I have to do everything via a USB.

    Edit: On the driver download page, there's a TURBO LAN and an Intel Gigabit driver. I assume I need the Intel Gigabit Ethernet driver?

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center x64

    Lol! I use mine often for games, movies, certain programs, etc, but most stuff you can simply get online. You can buy one for pretty cheap, less than $25 USD. But the USB transfer method will be perfect, and it ensures you get the latest drivers!
