I just received my Acer Swift 3 SF314-57G laptop yesterday. Turned it on, installed Windows 10 Home and everything worked fine.
However I have bought a Windows 10 Pro license key and wanted to get rid of all the bloatware and Acer software. I setup a bootable Windows 10 USB stick and booted from it for a clean install.
I deleted all the hard drive partitions, and created new partitions for the new Windows install. Here's where the problems began. Once it had completed installing, the touchpad no longer worked and it was unable to detect any wifi networks.
I plugged in a wireless usb mouse which worked fine. Once I got to the desktop, I opened Device Manager only to find that a whole bunch of the hardware components including the network controller, touchpad and most others were not working. Clicking on them shows "The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28). There are no compatible drivers for this device." [See attached pics]
Even the display adapter has installed a basic driver instead of the Nvidia one. I've never experienced this before having done numerous fresh installations on many other PCs and laptops. Why is all my hardware disabled and the drivers not installed? Due to the wifi card being disabled also I can't download drivers manually either.
Can someone shed some light on what I can possibly do?
