Hey there, i have this pc for a while now..

my question is can i install Drivers, DVD-rom firmware, Bleuthooth Drivers, and other Drivers

on this pc that haves Windows 10 Home 64x, because HP Support Site details say Drivers or other things that you download from the HP Support Site, will only Work/Run when you have a supported OS installed (like the supported OS for all this drivers is: Windows 8 64x) but i have Windows 10 Home 64x will that work then when i install such drivers or firmware updates for the BIOS, other things because they highly recommend to only install these Drivers when you have an Supported OS installed (default OS: Windows 8 64x) :/ Hope somebody can help me out! i have already been explained by britechguy that an BIOS/EUFI Update doesn't matter wich OS you have, it will just run fine.. everything runs above the BIOS.. :s

 

and does this also work with other Pc's, when they have other OS, than the supported one.. or above it!

 

Cheers!

As a rule, drivers for W8 will work fine on W10. If your intent is to either upgrade to W10 or do a clean install of W10, I suggest you create an image of the W8 system. Then, in the unlikely event you run into trouble you can always return to your current state.

I never runned/haved Windows 8, straight upgraded it to Windows 10.. :) and i just did an BIOS Update, and everything works fine like normal :D

so i can just install like: (Bleuthooth drivers, DVD Rom Firmware, Micro SD input Drivers.. like normal?) 

 

and when the current OS is Windows 7 for the Drivers, will it work then for Windows 10? (if the pc can runs, or is maked for Windows 10 but the original OS was 7 on it?..)

 

Cheers!

If the system supports W10 you should be fine. But as I said, if it were me I'd create an image first.

The original operating system was Windows 8 with sticker on top of the case.. but i have placed Windows 10 on it, would it work for the Drivers then?

If the computer is functioning correctly and you do not see any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager then there is no need to install drivers. Windows 10 will automatically push driver updates unless you disable that feature.

i just update my drivers of my HP pc if i need something, like Bleuthooth drivers, or other important drivers/updates like

BIOS/EUFI firmware's, or other important drivers :)
