    Clean Install - Realtek UAD

    Hello all,

    Mobo - ASRock B450m/AC (Realtek ALC892)
    W10 - 22H2

    I'm looking to do a clean install of W10 22H2, but it defaults to the older audio drivers. When I install the UAD (using the Install Driver option from the Device Manager), I can get it to work and it shows "Realtek Audio" (not "Realtek High Definition Audio") so I think the correct driver gets installed, but when I go to the MS Store to get the Audio Control, it errors out every time.

    Is there a better way to ensure I get the audio driver I prefer instead of the older HD driver?

    Thanks in advance......

    Hello @Taliseian,

    Beside obtaining the drivers from the Manufacturers website, have a look at this . . .

    > Backup and Restore Device Drivers in Windows 10

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks Paul, but I don't have the UAD drivers installed with the Audio Control that I can backup.

    I had them running once before, but it was a while ago and I can't remember how I did it. The current ones are not UAD/DCH or I could just back them up (or use Macrum for a clean image).

    Read my sticky tutorial, you cannot use the device manager inf installation to do the initial installation for DCH drivers. Read the Intel FAQ link in my sticky tutorial. MUST USE INSTALLER EXE.

    You can only use device manager inf installation to update DCH drivers.
