Operating System being updated. After the utility completes and
drivers are updated, there may be some driver version(s) where the

the adapter corresponding to the driver is not installed. Adapters
must be installed to gain proper version numbers from the utility.
Please disregard version numbers that do not pertain to the adapter(s)
you have installed.
