    right but if I don't use the -overall command and just install the Intel Chipset software, I see a lot of the devices without the proper name as shown in the screenshot above of my device manager

    Oh darn, I just read this:

    My conclusions:
    1. The installation of any "Intel(R) Chipset Device Software" or their included INF files is only useful, if the Device Manager shows a yellow mark at an Intel (VEN_8086) device with a "missing driver".
    2. Since the newest Windows Operating systems are able to detect and to name by their own all Intel chipset devices, which were on the market at the release of the OS, there is usually no need at all and no benefit for the users to install or update the Intel chipset device INF files (often named by mistake "Intel chipset drivers").
    3. Only users with a brandnew Intel chipset (from 8-Series up for Windows 7, from 9-Series up for Windows 8/8.1) or a very old Windows OS should install the latest suitable *.INF files for their specific Intel Chipset Devices to get rid from the "missing driver" message within the Device Manager.
    4. Forcing the installation of a not required or already present Intel Chipset Device INF file (e.g. by using the " -overall" command) doesn't make any sense, but will blow up the user's registry and the Windows\inf folder with garbage (unused resp. unusable oemxx.inf files). Furthermore the forced installation of unusable drivers generally may overwrite actually in use other drivers and can cause degraded performance or a lack of features.
    People should stop ut then start thinking. Maybe they finally can understand why so many others (than themself) never run into problems. This for drivers, software and the ****y from the Redmond HQ.
    Run RAPR and see if you can find old items.

    This is interesting. What drivers are usually safe to take out?

    Use Rapr aka Driver STore Explorer from Chef koch Git page or from lostindark repo.
    You can safely remove Skylake and older susbsytem inf since you don't use it.
    Sorry I was at work so couldn't reply when I making/repairing BGA. Anyway, You can use BCUninstaller to uninstall intel chipset SW by ticking off Show system components and protected items, that way you get Clean install like experience for Intel drivers. So, no need for -overall or -overide cmds.

    For those of you who want newer MEI driver instead of the ancient aka latest drivers from INTEL - OEM's website (compatible with both Consumer/1.5MB and Corporate/5MB systems).
