Windows had the geforce drivers but they were 352 and current is 368 or so (some important dual monitor + SLI features are not present in the old version MS loaded) . Windows had neither the RyOS-TKL-Pro nor Logitech gaming device (G600 mouse, G13 keypad) drivers, so those had to be manually installed otherwise the devices do not function.
I did change the partioning and disks a bit before the install, it was a chance to clean up my system.
And of course the very first thing after installing, I put on malwarebytes (paid full version), and Macrium (Full version), and did a full image backup of my main drive (the whole drive UEFI/GPT). Then a differential backup at each driver install (as well as a system rollback point). I did another image once I got my "baseline" system with all the usual additional software (like Chrome, PaleMoon browser, VLC player, PDF reader, LastPass, etc), so now I can roll back to bare bones (Just the stock OS, drivers WIndows got, and malwaybytes + Macrium), or else "baseline usable with apps" without reinstalling. Im putting in a virtual drive on the mirrored drive, 100gb or so, mapped to "H:" to serve as a "History" volume for MS's file version backup function.
Nice thing is, the baseline is so compact I can put a copy on my media jbod NAS, as well as my file (RAID5) NAS, and on my onboard mirrored set (and all that is in addition ot my Toshiba 3TB external which I use for my backups). So I should be OK for the future. At least now I have a "known good" base from which to operate.
Good. I wouldn't do the incrementals though - full images are best. If an incremental goes bad, the whole set is trashed.
Well I got the full image at "bone stock" and another at "usable with apps". Doing file based backups as the daily, images weekly. time for me to go to bed, Im up way late. 11 AM - be back awake at 1700 for a full 14 hours. And its Friday Night, so on the cardiac floor that means Hello Meth Head Tweekers and your rapid irregular hearts - and the usual drunks with bad hearts, and the weekend older (im older too!) "desk athletes" having heart attacks.
Party ON!!! lol
