    Device Installation Settings


    Something I checked after the upgrade from Build 10240 to Build 10586.3, is in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System and went to Advanced Settings>>>Hardware>>>Device Installation Settings. First of all it's simpler now, and second of all, the upgrade reset mine to download drivers. There is no way in hell I'm gong to let Microsoft update MY drivers.

    So this is a heads up to others with the same preference: Check your settings after the upgrade!

    I guess you don't feel lucky.

    After The upgrade it gave me the correct AMD/CCC video drivers from the Lenovo site(which is ok), but I prefer the last Beta version better. I just don't want them changed back. Nice thing is, I just opened the AMD folder and can pick the driver I want to re-install.

    At least now it gives a proper description, that it is not about blocking drivers at all.

    I would also hide the relevant updates, just in case since this setting didn't work for me (in build 10240, haven't tried in 10586).
