Hi Everybody,

Been playing with Windows 10 and am ready to get serious! I have no problem doing a clean install but have some "main" driver questions:

1. Do we need to install the latest version of Intel INF driver and Rapid Storage Tech software after the completing the initial clean install?

2. Are the any other "main drivers" (not talking LAN, Graphics, or the other obvious stuff) that needs to be manually installed?

3. Is there any order of installation that tends to keep things from being problematic?

These probably sound stupid, but I have read everything including all the Windows 10 Forum Tutorials and not yet found an answer.

I have bookmarked all of the excellent, legitimate articles that Jim, Bounty, Sandog, and other have posted. There's so much crap out there that does more harm than good.

A couple of other things that may help you to help me: 1) I need to use Firefox as Citrix and Checkmate VPN will not work with Edge and don't work as well with IE 11. I also have to install Java 64 bit as two necessary pieces of software I use require it.

Any other suggestions will be greatly appreaciated!

Many Thanks!

Miles
Regards,

Hey Miles LTNS, :tiphat:

You won't believe this but it is better to let Windows install your drivers. By the time you are officially on the desktop Windows will have already installed the latest chipset and NV drivers for you no questions asked. Check your DM and you will see.
