Peripheral Drivers for PXI or Rack-Mount Controller

Publish Date: Feb 20, 2019 | 0 Ratings | 0.00 out of 5 | Print

Overview

This article explains where to find peripheral (graphics, chipset, LAN/network) drivers for a PXI, VXI or Rack-Mount controller.

1. Introduction

Only download peripheral drivers if you are installing an operating system from scratch. Under normal circumstances, we recommend that you first try the hard drive recovery method (Acronis True Image, Phoenix Firstware, etc.) or try the OEM Recovery CD/DVD recovery method because both of these methods automatically install the necessary drivers for your embedded controller. For more information on these recovery methods, you can reference Restore the Operating System of My PXI, VXI, cRIO-908x, and cDAQ-913x Controller or reference your controller's user manual.

The drivers listed in the following table work for each respective series of controllers.

Note: If you don't see your specific PXI controller, check for a PXIe driver of the same version. For example, PXIe-8115 peripheral drivers should work on the PXI-8115.

If you are using Windows 10 and have a connection to the Internet the peripheral drivers should automatically be installed. If you don't have access to the Internet please contact National Instruments support.

The drivers for newer controllers may be available but not listed here. Try searching for your drivers at NI Driver Downloads.

Drivers for older controllers not listed in the above table and not listed under the PXI and VXI Drivers FTP Download links at the end of this article can be found at VXI/VME and PXI Controller Peripherals (no longer updated).

1The PXI-8108, PXI-8110 and PXIe-8108 controllers use the same peripheral drivers for both Windows Vista and Windows 7.
2The PXI-8821 controller uses the same peripheral drivers as the 8840 (core i5).
3 If installing a clean OS on an RMC-8354 with a factory RAID 5 configuration, the Intel RAID driver in the peripheral driver download must be installed during the OS installation. Since the OS is installed on the RAID drives, the Intel RAID driver must be present in order to detect the drives onto which the OS will be installed.
