    I've always been annoyed at having to download over 100MB for a tiny network driver. I don't want or need all that bloatware, I'm not running a server!

    I recently extracted my windows 7 64bit drivers and they functioned perfectly upon reinstall so i wanted to share them here for others who don't want the bloat..

    Install the Intel Chipset driver first - that's already lean. Then the following drivers can be installed using the Device manager (update the driver and browse for the inf).

    Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
    Killer Wireless-N 1103 Network Adapter
    Realtek PCIE CardReader
    STMicroelectronics 3-Axis Digital Accelerometer
    USB 3 drivers

    These drivers altogether take up just over 4MB (as opposed to >350 MB)

    What's missing:
    Management software for the network cards (Useless and annoying)
