Can I use the Windows 8.1 MOBO Driver Suite for Windows 10?

So, finally looking to take the plunge into Windows 10 after I put it on a family member's computer. And I figured that after the update, I'd just do a refresh and take it back to the beginning while I was at it. The issue I'm having is that I'm not sure if the drivers I have are compatible with Windows 10. When I went to the manufacturer, it only has up to Windows 8:

So, I was just curious if those drivers will work for Windows 10, or if I should just wait.

Update: I found the list and saw that my motherboard isn't "officially" for use with Windows 10. But I'm curious if that's the case, is it okay to upgrade to begin with? And as long as it is, I assume I can still do a refresh on it, yes?

  1. The drivers will probably be compatible, all of the drivers I tried on w7 worked on w10
  2. I agree, they will probably work but no guarantees, the only thing that might give you trouble are the realtek audio and LAN drivers but I bet they will be fine.

    Go to the ASRock site and see if they've got updated drivers, just to be safe. If not, then I agree, you should be fine. Few mobo's are Win 10 certified, but I had no issue updating several older machines, the oldest being maybe 5 years old.
  4. Even if the drivers work, is likely that there are newer(maybe even better) drivers for Win 10. Check the website

    Thats why he is asking this question, the asrock website does not have windows 10 drivers for any of their z68 boards.
