    Windows fall update. Drivers freeze when installing.


    Hello,

    I decided to do clean install of Win 10 pro fall update. Installation went fine. Windows installed the nvidia driver. Rebooted.
    Installed Amd chipset (version before current, as current one freezes).
    Chipset installed fine. Rebooted.
    Installed Realtec audio drivers. Installed fine. Rebooted.

    When I try to install the Intel Wireless, or Intel bluetooth drivers, it will get about half way. The system will bog down and after a minute, the system will automatically reboot (no blue screen). I even tried running display driver uninstaller in safe mode, and that even got stuck.[emoji357]

    I have a 1800x, OC to 4 ghz
    ASROCK Taichi X370 MB
    Samsung 850 Evo 1 TB as the install drive.
    16 x 2 3000 mhz memory (forgot the brand).

    Has anybody have this happen to them with this update? When trying to find suggestions, one mentioned if OC, to put it back to stock, but I never had issues with doing a clean install with the system OC.

    Any suggestions on what to try? I'm thinking of installing the spring 2017 update

    Thanks

    Hi, I'm wondering why you are installing drivers such as those? Windows takes care of all basic drivers for you. (Well it tries too). Typically the problem with, say, the Fall Creator's Update- for the relatively few that have such problems- is the need to use an OLDER driver - typically a graphics driver.

    Where are you getting the drivers from?
    Please don't use a driver scanner program (discussed on various occasions here).

    The source of the drivers is Asrock's driver page for my mother board. Besides that, Amd for chipset & Nvidia for my graphics card

    The only reason to get drivers other than those Windows installs is in the event of some particular problem or difficulty. There's no need to try to manually update them normally.

    I'll do a reinstall and only update the audio and video drivers and see how that goes

    After doing a clean install of Windows and doing all of your Windows Updates, press the Win key+X and choose Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If there are none, you do not need to install any drivers unless a device is not working correctly.
