A driver isn't necessary and it's unlikely you'll find one (these CPUs have been obsolete for 20 years).  The computer is obviously up and running OK, so there's no issues with the CPU that directly affect Windows.

I must admit I am surprised to see this run at all.  After Apple dumped PowerPC CPUs, they are used today mostly in specialized systems such as embedded SoC. The last release of Windows that supported PowerPC CPUs was Windows NT 4.0.

"32-bit and 64-bit PowerPC processors have been a favorite of embedded computer designers. To keep costs low on high-volume competitive products, the CPU core is usually bundled into a system-on-chip (SOC) integrated circuit. SOCs contain the processor core, cache and the processor's local data on-chip, along with clocking, timers, memory (SDRAM), peripheral (network, serial I/O), and bus (PCI, PCI-X, ROM/Flash bus, I2C) controllers. IBM also offers an open bus architecture (called CoreConnect) to facilitate connection of the processor core to memory and peripherals in a SOC design. "
