    Is it even worth upgrading to 10 until we get SATA and audio drivers? Basically the only reason I'm waiting to upgrade. Want to make sure my RAID setup (raid 0 with 2 WD black caviars, planning on deleting the raid array and wiping the drives, then re-creating it again before installing 10 on the SSD) will work correctly.

    I updated my system without messing with any new drivers. The windows 10 installment work like a charm and all drivers were updated during the install process. I used the media tool so I did not have to wait for windows 10 update queue. Used to love Windows 7, but Windows 10 rocks.



    PS forgot to down-clock my system when doing the upgrade but all went well at 48 GHz. Incidentally all my software including Microsoft Outlook 2007, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13, AIDA64, Acronis 13 are all working fine. The only problem is with Samsung magician which works but does not enable rapid on the 850 Pro.

    My upgrade went fine too - its the clean install that leaves drivers out.

    Also interesting point to note about Acronis 2013 - It works fine after an upgrade, but if you try to reinstall or install from a clean build it won't let you. I had to upgrade to 2015

    Have to add: upgraded to Win10 here with no problems - took almost two hours - had to make minor changes to get the desktop to look as I wanted. Also no issues when I updated my #2 system.

    Thanks guys, I think I'll wait a while to see how the drivers progress. I'd rather do a clean install than upgrade.

    Upgrade went fine ... but, been having occasional driver crashes during gaming for NVidia and Gigabit Ethernet which never had such thing before.

    I'm still waiting for Rampage IV Formula Windows 10 drivers to appear, it's the only reason I'm postponing a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on my computer.

    EDIT: Check the driver page, there are new LAN drivers uploaded.

    People planning a clean install we should consider an upgrade install first. This would ensure activation of the free Windows 10 which could then be followed by a clean install when you feel that the drivers are ready. They have been quite a few cases where the clean install created a problem with activation.

    I don't need to update first, because I'm not getting the free update offer. I've got my Windows 10 iso & and a separate key from Microsoft Dreamspark, I'll not face activation problems.

    my upgrade went smoothly with the cpu still overclocked and the 1404 bios "the first one never updated it", I just updated to 10 from 7 pro and all my programs/drivers work except my sound card of which the win 8.1 driver works fine. I even got the win 7 rog theme to work except the start menu icon of which i am trying to change . I have not needed to install any new asus drivers all i did is use DDU and install a new amd driver for win 10 just as i thought it would be better than the oem one. the oem driver cause my pc to shut down slowly ruffly 5 extra seconds, now it is just as fast as 7 with the different amd ccc.
    FYI you can buy asus rive bios chips on ebay for super cheap with the any bios version flashed on them if you dont like the bios update procedure, then its juts a simple swap of the chips :P
    I will buy 2 with the win 10 bios on them and just keep my 1404,s stock and as spares if i roll back ever

    Any idea which folder and number is the start menu icon ? I assume it is the icon folder but it has so many files inside it
