    Driver version

    Are people using Windows 8.1 drivers where version 10 drivers aren't available?

    Yes. I have had no need to install any drivers manually, Windows setup and Windows Update have found everything except fingerprint reader drivers on two HP laptops; the 8 / 8.1 drivers wont install and no 10 drivers available.

    I've had to install a couple things after upgrading to the 9879 Windows 10 version.

    Both my Logitech T650 trackpad and Brother printer disappeared after the update. I used the Windows 8/8.1 installers from the mfg of the respective equipment with no problem.

    But I think it will be a mixed bag with the tech previews for awhile. Some drivers will probably work, others won't.

    Ive had no problems so far with 8.1 drivers but I did all the WU updates and build updates before installing drivers.
