If you plan to install windows 8 or windows 8.1 (any version), here is the step you need to do in order to install the drivers you need:

It means you are installing Intel driver by using incompatible operating system, example installing windows XP driver in windows 7. To fix this install the appropriate drivers base on the operating system.
