I have done a clean install of Windows 10 (64 bit) on my Acer Veriton X4610G although the system runs, a few things need to be sorted out.
- Device manager shows an unrecognized PCI device. Windows Update can't fix it. It looks like the chipset drivers are missing.
- The internal Hard Disk Drive (HDD) WD Green Caviar WD10EADX shows up as removable hardware. It has an old driver, Driver Details:
- The currently active AHCI driver is also from Microsoft, dated 2006.
- A. Could the latest by Acer provided Chipset Driver (Date: 2017/01/16, Version: 184.108.40.2061, Vendor: Intel) be used to install in Windows 10, or would that mess things up?
B. Intel nor its Driver and Support Assistent (SA) show downloads for the Intel Q65 chipset. I did manage to find Intel Server Chipset Drivers for Windows Intel® Server Boards legacy Intel drivers (Version: 10.1.17903.8106, Date: 1/29/2019), that cover Microsoft Windows* 10 x64 drivers for the 6th Generation
Intel® Core™ processor family / Intel® C200 series chipset
family. Could they be used to install in Windows 10, or would they mess things up?
- Any idea if its important to and by what to update the WDC WD10EADX-22TDHB0 Driver?
- Could the latest by Acer provided SATA AHCI Driver (Date: 2011/04/28,
Vendor: Intel) for Windows 7x64, be used to install in Windows 10, or would that mess things up?
- Are Windows 8x64 generally usable in Windows 10 (I can see some newer Serial IO, VGA and Card reader Drivers)?
