    installing on Gigabyte ga 990fx ud3

    Has anyone had any luck with 10 using this motherboard???

    It installed ok but I have no audio no network and it won't recognise my graphics card.... which is a right pain as this is on my games machine...

    I've been to the gigabyte website and downloaded the drivers but they don't work...

    Anyone managed to at least get the graphic card to work?

    Or will I need to reinstall 7 again?

    Works really well on my other machines...

    You can always roll back if it doesn't work for you. "Windows 8 Ready" products should be good to go for Windows 10, but this doesn't appear to be "Windows 8 Ready". The website does have Windows 10 drivers for Audio and LAN. For the other drivers, download the Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 versions (Windows 8.1 if possible). If you have a WiFi USB adapter or something like that, then download the drivers for it specifically.

    On the other hand, my $50 Gigabyte "Windows 8 Ready" mobo supports Windows 10 just fine.

    If you can extract the graphics card drivers (and Windows 8/8.1 drivers should work, and probably even Windows 7 drivers), you can go to device manager, right click the generic VGA adapter, upgrade drivers, browse your computer, select my hardware (or some option like that, can't remember the exact wording), find the .inf file in the extracted drivers, choose your specific graphics card/chip and install the driver that way. I have an old ATI Radeon HD 4600 and that's how I got a full feature driver to work on mine.
