    Known driver issues with Maximus VII Formula and Win10 creator's update?

    Hi guys, I'm getting ready to put my first SSD in my system which means a windows reinstall. My current drive was formatted as MBR format under Win 7 on an old P55 series board without a UEFI BIOS and I had no way to get all the info off it in order to do UEFI mode with GPT partitions when I built this system in 2014.

    I was going to switch the BIOS to UEFI mode and set up the SSD with GPT partitions but one of our network admins at work mentioned that if the board doesn't have updated drivers for it for the UEFI "system" to keep up with Windows version updates that eventually windows updates might break the install. So now I'm thinking I should stick with non UEFI mode and set the SSD as an MBR style partitioning since this board hasn't had driver updates in quite a while.

    What do you guys think? Anyone having any issues with this board in UEFI mode with the latest version of Win10? My mechanical hard drive I'm keeping around for data and some apps is only 2TB so I'm not running into the MBR partition/drive size limits and I'll probably update the system with a new board and CPU next year which would fix the potential driver issue for a while.
