Hi everybody,

 

Well, I just cancelled my Windows 10 reservation.   After running the update tool it pretty much said ALL of my bluetooth drivers, my network drivers, and my Wi-Fi drivers are not compatible.  One year old computer using an Asus Z-87 Deluxe motherboard and I7 processor.  I imagine Asus will eventually have drivers, but I think I wait a bit.  I don't want to have to deal with this yet.  Call me a wimp! :)

And so it begins. I can see  more of this considering the amount of different hardware out there. Maybe not a lot but there were people who had a hard enough time upgrading from 8 to 8.1. Take your time, you have a year to decide and for drivers to be written. I just wonder if  some companies will not bother to write Windows 10 drivers for some of the hardware in order to get people to buy new.

I have a 10 year old printer and scanner and they connected to Windows 10 in an instant and started working fine. A 3 year old BlueTooth speaker also connected right away and statrted working out-of-the-box.

Not compatible means there aren't device drivers from W10 for the specific device yet, which is just Microsoft's way of saying - we're not guaranteeing this device will work on Windows 10 with its prior tested drivers (whether that's 8.1/8/7), so we're not promising anything.

 

For what it's worth, your devices probably work just fine.

There is a part of Get Windows 10 app to check whether the Upgrade is compatible with your Hardware. Click on the options on the top left, there is an option  called "Check Your PC".

Have ASUS motherboard with i7 Plus various Bluetooth connections including keyboard mouse combo, speakers and a Logitech touchpad.

Have downloaded and used all W10 previews since Oct 1st last year, and have experienced none of your problems.

You might also find that the status will change. When I first checked last week, they said my keyboard and mouse drivers might not be compatible. When I checked yesterday, that has been resolved. No conflicts.

Mine said the same thing but after I restarted it now says I am right to go

Mine said the Intel bluetooth wouldn't work then it went away and it also said Norton 360 wouldn't work but I got an email from symantec today. If you reserve you still can download anytime you want and if you don't reserve you can download anytime you want.

It's been typical in the past, that newer machines will have more conflicts versus older machines.  I just bought a used Dell Latitude D630 (core 2 duo) because I read two years ago from users in Amazon, that their Win8 updates went well without a hitch.  By contrast, Dell's Win8 update instructions for my newer Dell Latitude 6530s (3rd gen i5) said I needed to do stuff in BIOS before I should update.  Those machines are barely two years old.

 

So maybe the solution is to update an older machine, see if you like Win10 first.

This happened with Vista (and to a lesser degree with the following versions of Windows)

Microsoft makes a limited number of generic drivers in order to support most hardware.

But the choice to support Win10 for a given piece of hardware remains in the hands of the hardware manufacturer (and their driver developers).

 

It costs a lot to develop a stable driver that not only works with Win10 - but with the gazillion other hardware products/combinations that they have to deal with.

When Vista came out people complained about driver availability - but it just wasn't profitable for the driver companies to make drivers for all the hardware out there.

 

You'll find that Win10 will likely work better with older hardware/drivers than previous versions - simply because of the added work they've put into backwards compatibility and hardware compatibility.

usasma, yes, that makes perfect sense.  MSFT can't test everything, so it goes with what it has.  I get that.  Just wish they would be more forthcoming, prior to installation.
