    Everything hunky and dory right now. The PC is running severely fast. CD drive is working and emojis seems to be one thing to love. ����*��

    I doubt that any manufacturers would already have drivers just for this version. It's actually quite rare they make or release drivers for particular windows build.


    It's indeed a bit too early for them to release drivers yes. I have a Gigabyte motherboard and my model's support page does show which Windows builds are supported, for example version 1803.

    Manufacturers release their drives to MS first for WHQL testing, before releasing them to public.

    You can check for the latest drivers here: Microsoft Update Catalog
    Thanks, but doesn't MUC only offer general drivers? From what I understand manufacturer's have tweaked their own MS approved drivers to fit their hardware better. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Windows 10 will go on, so it seems strange to me if a motherboard manufacturer just stops Windows 10 support after a certain version. It's not like I can defer or stop a feature update forever. Manufacturers who offers tweaked drivers are for the most part exclusive to laptops, or at least lappy's are more susceptible to driver offerings. From my experience pretty much all drivers since Windows 8.1 have worked on Windows 10 and all of its updates. There's been a few exceptions, but very rarely. I don't use that many devices so that may explain why I haven't seen much driver compatiblity issues.

    Flying in at 112mbps. I didn't think it would be available until Oct 31, bad guess!

    Thanks for your reply. I didn't mean that manufacturers would stop releasing drivers after a certain version. What I meant to say is that I always thought that it's better to wait for your own manufacturer's drivers releases instead of the ones offered by Microsoft through Windows Update but I'm not sure about this. In my case, Gigabyte apparently releases drivers for different Windows 10 builds, hence me wondering about this.

    Regardless, it's good to hear that you rarely experience any issues, even with Windows 8.1 drivers. Thanks for letting me know this!

    Hi there

    absolute slew of Office 2016 updates --probably because I haven't updated those for ages -- on the VL / iso version not click2run so updates via windows update not from within office -- I probably hadn't on my previous windows version enabled updates for other Ms products. Anyway all working

    there's about 3 screen pageloads of these !!!

    All my current hardware predates Windows 10 so my only real source for drivers is Windows update. I'm rollong the dice with each new build that all my hardware will still work. My ASUS laptop shiped with Windows 8.0 and thats about all i can find on thier site as far as drivers for it. Plus one or twp Windows 8.1 drivers. For my two ASUS desktop motherboards it stops at Windows 7 drivers. It's been my experince that if your device didn't ship with Windows 10 from the factory, don't hold your breath waiting for the OEM to release Windows 10 drivers for it.

    I was just mumbling and generalizing the idea of W10 and compatibility. Do you have exclusive drivers for your Gigabyte motherboard? The only thing you may miss on is a Gigabyte emblem or something rooted into a controlpanel or some such. I have a MSI board and I can get the MSI logo in the audio controlpanel if I download it directly from them, but since I don't use the built-in audio I don't even have it enabled. Its also the only driver being actively updated on their site. If you search the driver versions you can get a better overview if the driver is being tweaked or if it's just offered directly from them (reference the numerics). Most cases the drivers offered are mirrors, released by multiple sources and are outdated on the mb manufacturer's websites. Except for maybe laptops.
