    Being not too good at waiting, I tried a few things myself and THINK I have got it working after a complete fresh clean install

    I completely wiped everything and formatted every partition on every drive on my laptop and then used a usb stick to install Windows 10. To my surprise, it installed perfectly first try without me having to find any drivers whatsoever!

    It found the internet without the need for the Killer Network Manager so I have chosen not to go anywhere near that.

    The problem is though that when installing, it asked me for my Win 10 product key... I entered the product key on the bottom of my laptop which is used to fresh install Win 7, but that did not work so I just clicked 'skip this step'... I presume that this means I am only running a trial and that after X days, I will face further problems? Is there any way of fixing this?

    That's probably what I would have done too, at least it fixed it.

    If your initial install was the free upgrade, it should recognize your computer for the clean install. Does it show activated?

    I just checked and yes, it does show as activated. I thought that as I formatted everything, it would not recognise that it was an upgrade, but somehow it has

    Thank you for your help. I will now mark this as solved
