Touch screen driver unavailable for Windows 7 on the XPS 12

If Windows 7 is installed on the Dell XPS 12 2-in-1 Ultrabook, the touch screen will not function correctly due to the needed drivers for this device being unavailable. The XPS 12 shipped with only the Windows 8 or 8.1 operating system as an option. No device drivers or supported options were made available for Windows 7 on the XPS 12.

The Intel Serial I/O I2C BUS driver controls the touch screen functionality on the Dell XPS 12. This driver is currently only available for the Windows 8 or 8.1 operating system. There are no plans from Intel or Dell engineering to release a version of this driver that is compatible with Windows 7.
