    I mean on system without Display drivers... you installed 362.00 before WU could strike, if I understood correctly.

    Point is "ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate" ignore only some drivers on clean system...

    With any fresh clean install not upgrade install of 10 seen so far the WU looks up the available drivers for each of the hardwares detected when the option for checking for all updates is left checked during the install. Holding off on that and manually searching to look up the drivers(correct ones) that will work then becomes the task to avoid any of these other issues.

    And that is precisely what I had to do here with older now discontinued hardwares where the 10 installer would grab the wrong one or simply not find any. For the expansion cards other then the older model AMD/MSI/Radeon card the 10 installer had no problem putting on both drivers and the Radeon software itself while the sound card and tv tuner needed sound card wares and a substitute model's application for the tv tuner card which won't tune much of anything from the digital cable system but allows for analog input from vhs, older camcorders, etc.

    You can see where the Windows installer or WU can get confused a bit at times as far as older hardwares go especially when having already been discontinued several years back! The solution at first when these types of problems come up is the obvious choice of a manual S&D operation as far as weeding out the incorrect for the correct to insure working results.

    Saw another example of the exclude drivers GP setting not working today: Synaptics touchpad driver appeared in WU list despite GP setting. Synaptics drivers had been installed manually months ago (ie. this was not a brand new clean install or anything).

    So there is NO way how to prevent download/install all drivers.
    Yes there is, by disabling full auto WU (via GP) and then manually hiding the drivers with the WUShowHide Tool as they appear in the WU list. I explained this in posts #64 and #58.

    I ended up needing to turn the WU off entirely! While not being seen on the second desktop's Insider build there the main with the Redstone 1 update still going has been seeing "updates 100%" followed immediately after with "have to undo all changes" and this goes on and on every time an unwanted language package update is trying to be installed by the WU.

    The other AMD and security updates never run into that type of problem and when checked the AMD and other devices are all found to be currently updated. I just checked on the Radeon drivers to find that is also the latest available on without a problem while sound has to taken care of manually for each new build or update put on. And this is being seen noting that the Active hours are scheduled and this one update still is being pushed yet not wanted!
