    How i screwed up my system after upgrade thinking i needed newer controller drivers as Windows 10 has them already,at least for Intel. OP choice to try that, be prepared as mine did not boot after that.
    On my board here its using a windows 7 driver from last year which is AMD SATA controller on Windows 10. My board also has a ASmedia SATA ports and those drivers are working too. I wonder why yours did not boot after installing drivers.. Usually that issue is when someone switches the SATA mode from AHCI to IDE and Vice Versa in BIOS.

    Because i tried to install it on one said standard AHCI not first one you see in my pic of device manager. Spoke to Gigabyte told me did not need to install any because Windows 10 has updated for Intel, usually you preinstalled these drivers before the OS.
    I tried after the upgrade, then would not restart. If OP has Intel will be same, not sure about AMD only other manufacturer anyway. Basically the BIOS detects what you plug in, and system will still recognize DVD ROM.

    New guy here with the same problem. I upgraded from Win 7 to 10 on an old Acer Aspire 5810TZ Laptop to test it out and it is not recognizing that my CD/DVD drive exists. It doesn't show up in the device manager at all.

    I will have to see if I run into that on a P5Q Deluxe with a Intel SATA chipset. I know when I repaired a Dell Insprion 660S a week ago and put windows 8.1 which has Intel SATA and all of that. I guess I installed a buggy intel driver and rebooted and the DVD drive disappeared. It was listed in BIOS but nothing in device manager. So I installed the standard AHCI driver then rebooted and checked device manager the DVD drive was back. Then I installed a newer Intel SATA driver and its been working fine. IM sure OP is running into the same thing it seems. He might have to stick with a standard ahci driver until who ever made his SATA controller releases a good driver for windows 10.

    Can you give us a screenshot of your SATA AHCI controller in device manager?

    True, we do not know enough specs on thread starter. Basically do not need a driver to be recognized by the BIOS for most devices as Windows stick a generic there for now, mostly loose functions of a device without correct driver.

    When i had Windows 8.1 both controller drivers where there too and both Intel 9 series. What had me this time, after the issue from Windows 10 upgrade i did a clean install and even flashed the new drivers in from Gigabyte just before install of Windows this time and it was still same when it booted as before with upgrade install of 10, all is fine.

    Not sure what is causing these problems with limited info on systems to, maybe registry issues or hardware.

    That will do. You got the Older driver that Acer has on their support site. I know the Driver 9.1.9.1005 works I have it on my living room Intel Based system and Intel SATA ports.

    I want you to install the Standard AHCI driver that Windows 10 comes with on this. Just click on Update driver and use the standard AHCI driver. When its installed reboot and see if the DVD drive is back. Im going to look for a link of the 9.1.9.1005 driver.

    Or see if there is a newer one online, select, let it "search automatically for updated driver software".
