    I did an upgrade yesterday and all went smooth. Today I've got my new SSD coming so I will be doing a clean install. Should I just leave the drivers the OS installs(chipset, wifi, etc.) and what about Asus specific? The asus page shows only software for 8.1 for my G771, should I install those?

    Personally i always let windows update install every driver possible then ill go to the hardware manufacturer download pages and look for new drivers there to fix anything missing drivers in device manager. My last stop if i cant find the driver anywhere else is the Asus drivers page but they are usually old and outdated drivers. I dont think you need anything from the asus page other than bloatware and the ATK drivers everything else can be found on intel or other sites.

    I just did a clean UEFI install using an USB for Win 10.1 and my G771JW is recognized as a desktop computer. WU messed something up. Running Intel Driver Update Utility says no devices supported.

    Yep you were supposed to do the upgrade/update first then if you still want to do clean install you can with no activation issues. For now I would reinstall the latest Chipset drivers available on Asus Support Downloads that might help. Also look Asus should have some new drivers for windows 10 up by now!

    Lots of 10 help on this forum http://www.tenforums.com/forum.php

I dont think you need anything from the asus page other than bloatware and the ATK drivers everything else can be found on intel or other sites.
    Asus drivers are out of date on specific laptop/computer model driver pages, but you can find new driver releases by doing the following:

    Instead of searching for your model (ie. G751), you need to search for the specific driver utility you want. I usually have a page open for my model's driver page to determine exactly what I need, and then I open a new search page under Asus Download/Support page to search for things like - ATK, Wireless, LAN, Sound, IMEI, Intel RST, Chipset.

    Once under those categories, it has drivers for a wide range of devices, but if you know your hardware and general driver version history, you can see which one you need and download the latest driver for your laptop. It's a bit sketchy if you are not sure what you are looking for, but once you know, you can get latest drivers for all Asus products.

    Also, it's a good idea to use USB drives for all your backups, like Asus Backtracker etc. I have a USB for my Backtracker backup, and another for Windows 8.1 clean install, and soon for my Windows 10 clean install. It's like keeping copies of older Windows versions as backup/trophies on a USB instead of CD/DVD now. I swear by the Rufus utility for making bootable USB drives using Windows ISOs too.

    Hi AQUASTEVAE,
    I'm also stuck on the drivers thing, want to make sure I pick the right stuff before letting anything install.
    Could you give some details on which drivers are best to pick and from where also in the case of a clean install of Windows 10 ?

    yeah, what i did was load the wifi, trackpad and chipset from asus's page, 8.1 drivers, and searched and got the latest sound drivers on realtek's, and nvidia's sites. i got rid of all of asus's drivers of crapware that they load on this computer, like game software. then i upgraded to windows ten, and ran update several times from within windows 10, until all of my drivers were up to date. asus does have a windows 10 driver for atk. make sure to load this last. good luck. i have had almost zero problems with windows ten. if you make sure to get all of the right drivers downloaded, it will all go perfectly well.

    ]Can anyone tell me whether this looks good? I'm kinda bummed because Intel Driver Update Utility says no devices detected on Windows 10 and when I go to manually search for drivers it only shows me Desktop Board drivers, as if I have a desktop motherboard.
