GA-Z77X-UD5H (rev. 1.0) and Windows 10 Home Edition
« on: February 15, 2020, 12:08:24 pm »
Hello,

I wondered whether the windows 10 chipset for the  GA-Z77X-UD5H (rev. 1.0) will support Win10 ver.1809 and Win10 ver.1903? Or am I likely to get error messages?

Thanks,

Greetings,
Windows 10 is an OS.  I believe what you are asking is will Windows 10 run on the Z77 chipset (either build 809 or 1903)?

The answer is yes.  The OS will install without any special action on your part.

If you are missing any drivers, you can download them here:

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z77X-UD5H-rev-10/support#support-dl-driver-audio 

Selecting either the W10 or W8 driver will work.

The Z77 chipset is newer than your GA-790FXTA-UD5, but both are very dated at this point.

Hi,

I have noticed that the VGA driver for this motherboard is not present on the support list, will Windows 10 find this in device manager as well as the Atheros LAN driver? Also, as it is an older motherboard will its functionality be affected?

Thanks.

Unofficial Atheros Drivers For W10

Seems to have just about everything from them:

https://www.ath-drivers.eu/atheros-network-drivers.html

I doubt you will need either of these since W10 will probably install for you.

Hello,

Yes, Windows 10 installed without a hitch and the OS found the missing drivers.
