I decided to take the plunge today and will be installing windows 10 from scratch.

I have a question though, I'm a bit afraid regarding automatic driver updates, mainly concerning graphics drivers, how can I stop that right off the bat?

Cheers

It's tricky. You must sacrifice a young female virgin to the altar of Bill Gates' philanthropy, while swearing your servitude to M$. Then you have to throw yourself into an erupting volcano, during a hailstorm. If you survive (and agree to the EULA, of course), you will be granted special permission to use your PC as YOU see fit. Maybe.

Sorry - I was making an attempt at humor because of the sorely lacking user's control features really have me po'd.

TBH - others here have better answers, and I'm sure some will chime in any time now. I was just venting. The best I have found is the ability to defer some updates for a while - not stop them.

Unplug your ethernet cable. Install Windows 10. Install all the drivers you need. Install whatever else you need. Then plug it back in. Windows 10 should then not update any of those drivers.

Exactly what Team Grinder said. I always disconnect from the Internet during my clean installations of Windows 10 Pro, being it an Insider build or the non Insider, which I use as my main OS. My habit is to keep the latest drivers for my system in a USB stick. I disconnect from the Internet = shut down my modem/router, and right after installation I install my drivers in the following order: Intel INF, IME, AHCI driver, LAN driver (and this is when I connect to the Internet, so I power on my router), NVIDIA driver. I then check for updates and proceed with my soundcard's driver and my programs. The reason I install the LAN driver before NVIDIA's driver is that sometimes NVIDIA's driver requires an Internet connection. Following this procedure I have never (ever) faced any issue with Windows 10 trying to force drivers on my system.

Also, keep in mind that as soon as you will establish an Internet connection Windows 10 will search and download your GPU's drivers. So you have to install your GPU's drivers immediately right after the LAN driver.

Yeah, I figured out how it works and how to fully stop it!

After you have that "image" (all the latest Hardware Drivers) why not capture it and then use that for any future installs as a "restore image build"?

Question to anyone else running 14251. Can one of you try installing JDK 8_72 64 bit and tell me if it works for you? I am getting a script error when it goes to install JRE and I can't seem to get around it no matter what I try.
