UIU Support has recently witnessed several situations wherein updating of firmware addresses specific driver issues. See Release Notes from June 16, 2020 for two examples. UIU Support strongly recommends that, if customers are experiencing issues, the firmware (BIOS/UEFI) be updated immediately. If the target machine continues exhibiting issues, please contact UIU support for additional troubleshooting.
In our continued efforts to provide the most applicable and viable drivers while minimizing UIU Database size, UIU Support has undertaken a periodic review of the drivers represented in our database as of DB-20-07-02. In most cases, drivers that have been removed were not unique and would not have been selected during the minisetup process. This update also addresses the handling of several Microsoft Surface device drivers. If you experience issues, please contact UIU Support.
The full driver database exceeds 34Gb in size (34.3 Gb IMP). Please follow the guidelines below for optimal performance. This database release still covers Windows 7 through Windows 10 (64-bit only).
USB Flash drives need to be formatted with the NTFS file system before the driver database will successfully transfer.
Network share access is recommended.
The Big Bang Support Team would like to remind our customers to please clear out any drivers represented in the Custom folder(s) prior to testing with a new version of the UIU Driver Database as neglecting to do so may result in false negative installations. Please contact a UIU Support representative with questions or concerns.
