I downloaded the media creation tool, made a USB drive and used the exe on that to upgrade the current system. That way I would have a bootable drive if anything went tits up (which it did not).

After upgrading I installed the regular Asus Driver Package from the eSupport folder. (Just hit the .exe in the main folder).

Then I could FINALLY lose that bloody 15GB recovery partition (using diskpart and the "delete override" command.)

After realizing how effing cool Win 10 is, I also deleted the windows.old (Win 8.1 Recovery) and now I have a fully functional G751JY with Win 10 on it and so far, I love it!

Geforce Experience, Drivers, all working so far!

I have to say, even the Edge Browser is a NICE piece of work. Let's hope they don't ruin it!

Win 10 really has a small footprint: 31.5 GB!

Oh, forgot to say before anything I used winflash to get BIOS 208.

I straight up upgraded from 8.1 using the tool, didn't make a boot stick, choosng to keep everything and I have had to install exactly nothing - everything works off the bat and works well at that. Kudos M$.

Just adding to the thread to say that everything worked FLAWLESSLY straight out of the box with my G751JY-DH71 and Windows 10, and I am LOVING it. Games work flawlessly, Cortana is neat, and I'm actually impressed with Microsoft's Edge browser. I hope they add extension support soon, as I can't use it as my main until I can have some better control over content and get 1password installed, but I loved it during my test runs!

Only experienced a slight issue upon attempting to install, where it would hang at 32%. I realized it was an Intel RST driver issue, updated that, and everything went smoothly from there.

I was MOST impressed by the fact that the ROG macro keys all worked right out of the box! I launched Arkham Knight and hit the Shadowplay button, and everything carried on/captured just like on Windows 8.1!

I really, really hope Microsoft keeps up this trend, and they can very easily shoot back up to their former glory.

Intel has a driver update utility that you can use.

Hi,

I would still appreciate an working sound driver. Still only stereo and lagging.

G751JT

Performance in 3dmark and some games seems to be similar as with win8.1.
Since new Nviida Driver no freezing in the witcher3 and other games.

cheers

Wait for the DX12 windows update for that, unless you are an microsoft insider

Yeah, I thought that DX12 doesn't initially come with Win10 but then again it is plastered all over my GPU...
I'm installing the "Windows 10" 353.62 drivers as I write this to see what happens.

DX12 is part of win 10,no update needed,run dxdiag.exe to see DX info,I am an insider but as far as I know everyone is on the same build at the moment,the next new build will not be for several weeks and that will be the start of SP1 for win 10

But I will not upgrade my laptop to Windows 10 because of restore factory setting. But I do update at my desktop. Cool windows 10 with faster startup and nice design. Just only the icon look a bit flat. Maybe can be improve. [emoji51]
