Need the make and model number of the computer. If this is a custom built unit, make and model of the motherboard.
Open your Device Manager and click on the +'s. Look for yellow exclamation points, question marks or red X's and tell us what device they are by

because it said something about Microsoft only products

I would be helpful to have the entire error message exactly as it appears.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

I'd like to see the exact error message too, however, at first thought I thought s/he was talking about Window's unsigned driver warning, but s/he said s/he did a format so I am assuming a fresh install and on a fresh install, the group policy setting for unsigned driver installation is 'Warn but allow' if I am not mistaken. I don't know what Microsoft has been up to lately so I may be wrong.

The only real problem that I have with being an I.T. Tech is that I can't use the excuse:
"Sorry, I don't do windows."
