    Microsoft Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

    will Asus update their old motherboard's driver for windows 10?
    otherwise i should use among windows 7 , window 8 , windows 8.1 drivers.
    which drivers are better to install?
    or let windows update to choose drivers itself?

    Win10 Pro x64

    I'm actually kind of curious about this myself, I decided that at least in my case my best bet is to do a clean install of 7 then upgrade since I don't think my motherboard will ever see 10 support (Intel DP55KG, for 1st gen Core processors, latest drivers are for Win7 ). Depending on how old the hardware is windows update won't even install a driver from the manufacturer it will just use a generic Microsoft driver (in my case it used a Microsoft driver instead of an Intel driver for my chipset).

    I have looked up my usual go to websites for drivers and so far:

    Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z87: Windows 10 64-bit
    Creative zX: nothing so far
    Nvidia: Windows 10 64-bit
    PCTV nanoStick T2: nothing so far
    Intel INF installation: available on Gigabyte's website but not Intel's...
    Killer Nic e2200 ethernet adapter: nothing so far
    WD My Cloud Mirror NAS: nothing so far
    xbox 360 controller for Windows: nothing so far

    * I expect some of these devices will be updated for Windows 10, otherwise I'll just use Windows 8.1 drivers.

    Your best bet would be Win 8.1 drivers, since most everything that's compatible with Win 8.1 is also compatible with Win 10.

    Nothing listed for my laptop on the ASUS site, not yet anyway. No real point checking my desktop motherboard's, they didn't even have Windows 8 drivers last time I checked. They are getting long in the tooth.

    Win 10

    I have two ASRock Z77 motherboards. Neither has any Win10 support on the ASRock site. They do have Win 8.1 so I should be OK. The Get Windows 10 shows "This PC Meets system requirements". One of the ASRock Z77 boards is running the Win 10 Preview without any problems, so I don't think I'll have any problems with the RTM version.

    I have a couple of older ASUS motherboards. I just go with the drivers Windows installs, and then hunt up drivers for what's not working. Neither one of mine even have Windows 8 drivers listed, just Windows 7 drivers. Ones an M4N68 something and the other is an M2N68 something. Old stuff. I think the only thing I had to hunt up was the VIA sound driver for the onboard sound on the M2N68. The onboard sound isn't detected at all, not even as an unknown device, so Windows doesn't even know its there and doesn't ever look for the driver. I have to install it manually. The only other driver I update is the one for my dedicated NVidia Video cards.

    So far Gigabyte doesn't have support for Win10 for my new motherboard but the 8.1 seems to work.

    Usually, for a laptop, tablet or premade desktop PC, you'll only get support for that OS if the device ships with that OS from the factory. If you have something a couple of years old, don't hold your breath. Its even worse for motherboards. It could take a while, if ever for them to supply new drivers for a new OS on last years tech. What's selling now is going to get priority.

    For the motherboard I have Gigabyte supports Xp through 8.1.
