  • Yes, Windows Update downloaded and tried to install the System driver. It did call to reboot, but then after the reboot it showed an installation error. So it seems the System driver wasn't installed at all.
    Windows Update doesn't show up this one anymore though and the system driver update is not listed in the update history. How can I tell now if the update was successful? Thanks!
