    Window 22 H how to find windows drivers after making a USB Thumb Drive


    How I like to say this is my first time asking for help? I am trying to make a USB drive to use to install Windows ten 22H . I did this but it different install to another computer because the other computer was legacy and the one I made it from was UEFI. I figured this out and it installed to the new computer. I now get where are the Windows ten drivers , this is the part I am stuck on ? I wish I could get some input from the more informed members on this forum thank you?

    Welcome to tenforums.

    I'm puzzled by your question: most necessary drivers are provided during the installation of Win 10. Many are included with the Win 10 install medium- others may be downloaded and installed after the initial installation.

    Creating a USB drive is routine. I suspect you may not know how it is normally done.

    Here's how:
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    - directly using the MS media creation tool.

    This comes from the tutorials you see when you click on Tutorials at the top. There you will also find one on how to clean install Win 10.

    The Tutorials section is a huge searchable collection of high quality tutorials - do have a look.

    Should you still be missing drivers, there are probably two possibilities:
    a. the driver is for hardware particular to that machine or manufacturer. See the manufacturer's driver download page.
    (e.g. special keys, backlit keyboards, maybe a fingerprint driver...)
    b. the PC is old and you may need to try a 3rd party tool for that particular device e.g. Snapy Driver Installer.

    I suggest you build the USB Win 10 22h2 installation drive using MCT

    Reset BIOS or load defaults.
    Set Disk mode to AHCI, not RAID
    Select OS mode = UEFI
    Disable fast boot and secure boot (you can turn it on after installation)

    Windows can be installed in two ways: Legacy-MBR or UEFI-GPT
    To install as Legacy-MBR you must boot the installation drive as Legacy
    To install as UEFI-GPT you must boot the installation drive as UEFI.

    If you have a UEFI BIOS, you should install as UEFI-GPT
    Detach any other drives (SATA or Power cable) from the MB.

    During POST, press F12(?) to launch the boot menu. You will see two options for the USB drive. USB UEFI (Name) and USB (Name). Select USB UEFI (Name) if you want to install as UEFI-GPT or select USB (name) if you want to install as Legacy-MBR.
    Go to install and delete ALL partitions on the main drive till you have one and only one unallocated space and then proceed.
    If you don't want to use MS account, don't enable updates or connect to the internet during installation.

    Windows update will take care of most drivers. Make sure to check for optional updates. For anything else that needs drivers either go to the computer manufacturer's website (if it is a store-bought off the shelf computer), or to the component manufacturer's website (such as Nvidia for Nvidia video cards, AMD or Intel for chipset drivers, etc.)
