The Device

Note: If you have downloaded the Stone CC4 driver package for the B85M-E and this device is missing after completing the deployment process, please re-download the package and add the ASMBSW.inf driver from the ACPI folder into your deployment console. The packages were updated on 11/4/14.

Using this Driver With Windows Deployment Services (WDS)

We are aware that this driver may not import into Windows Deployment Services on Windows Server 2008R2 and Server 2012. As a work around, you will either need to install the driver manually into deployed systems, or use WDS to capture and deploy your own Install image which already has the driver included.
