Post Windows 7 Drivers - Confusion !!
Today I updated the drive in my Fit-PC3 from a 120GB Mushkin SSD to a Toshiba 256GB SSD. The process including installing Windows 7 went well until it was time to install the FitPC3 specific drivers provided in the Wiki. At that point, the process became a bit confusing.

When I first configured my Fit-PC3 in 2012, the wiki provided drivers for the following categories:
AHCI
Audio
Bluetooth
Ethernet
FM LAN
USB 3.0
Video
WiFi

These drivers are now contained in the directory:

/download/fit-PC3/Win7/drivers/old

However, in the Wiki parent directory containing the newest drivers the categories of AHCI & Bluetooth are omitted, and the new category of FM SER is included.

I am proceeding under the assumption that I must install a driver for each of the categories:

AHCI
Audio
Bluetooth
Ethernet
FM LAN
FM SER
USB 3.0
Video
WiFi

When available, I am obtaining the needed drivers from the Wiki parent directory. However, if the parent directory does not contain a driver for a category, I am reverting back to the /old directory for that driver. This seems like a reasonable approach, but I cannot be sure given the Wiki's complete lack of instructions in this area.

I would strongly suggest that Compulab revise the Wki in order clarify the process and to group all of the drivers by category. I would suggest that each category should include all of the dated releases for that category.

Thankfully, Compulab has reorganized and clarified the FitPC3 Win7 Driver section of the wiki. Thanks guys - this was very helpful.
