Drivers/Hardware :: Unable To Install Intel HD Graphics Driver On Fresh Install

Jan 24, 2016

New build. From a fresh install of windows 10 i try to install the drver for my IGPU Intel HD 530. each time i do that i get a BSOD with this message:

VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE igdkmd64.sys
Or sometimes it's

I've tried drivers from motherboard manufacturer CD, website and intel and some autodetect driver software. I always get the same behavior:

The screen start blinking several time ( black screen) before showing the BSOD then reboot and repeat it self. Even the driver downloaded by windows update have the same impact.

I've managed to install it in safe mode but when i restart in normal mode i get the same behavior.
I've tried 2 different monitors, VGA and HDMI , tried with UEFI on/off => same result.
I've tweaked once the tdr delay to 8 second, but didn't work.

Can Do A Fresh Install On SSD?

Aug 1, 2015

I have a new 250gb SSD I want to do a fresh install on Windows 10 on. However I've already upgraded to Windows 10. I've downloaded a fresh Windows 10 installation onto a USB for the new install using the Media Creation Tool.

Is all I need to do just boot from the USB and install onto the new disk, or will it ask me for a product key etc? cause I stupidly have Windows 10 N currently, but the version on the USB boot is just plain 10.

Installation :: Can't Do Fresh Install For DVD

Aug 22, 2015

I have successfully upgraded from win 7 to win 10 but i would like to do a fresh install as its been years since i have and would like to start from fresh.

I made the x64 DVD from the MS installation media creation tool.

I run the setup.exe from the disc and it starts downloading updates goes through the processes but after 1 hour or so a message comes up saying installation has failed.

I looked at you 'Clean install' guide and this relates to USB not DVD or is the process the same?

Should i be booting from the DVD rather then running the setup.exe

I did try but my pc restarts and just loads normally with out actually booting via DVD

How To Proceed With Fresh Install On SSD

Jan 24, 2016

So I recently got a new SSD and installed Windows 10 on it, I'm wondering how to make it so my HDD doesn't take over again and become the boot part and leave my SSD in the dust.

The first time I installed Windows 10 on my SSD and then hooked up my HDD to the system even with the boot order where I put the SSD first somehow the HDD ignored those settings and started up, so my SSD was left doing nothing.

So I reinstalled Windows 10 on my SSD with my HDD unattached for now, I was wondering what I have to do to make sure the SSD is the boot and the HDD is just a storage device.

Computer Information

OS: Windows 10
CPU: Intel i5 2500K
RAM: Corsair 8 GB (2 sticks)
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

Upgrading OS With A Fresh Install

Dec 31, 2015

I'll soon be upgrading my PC to Windows 10 pro and while doing so I also purchased a dedicated SSD for the OS as well as an SSD for games. I plan to back up the old info from my HDD to an external and just wipe the HDD to use as extra storage. Obviously this means that all the drivers I installed when I first build the machine will be gone and I'm a little intimidated by the process of searching out what drivers I'll need for this new install.

I can't be 100% sure that I'll locate my mobo's driver install disk, however I have located the mobo on the manufacturers website where I have access to it's Windows 10 dedicated drivers. Everything is a separate download there, however, compared to the disk install which was a simple click and go so I'm not sure exactly what I need, what Windows will install automatically, etc. Some of the drivers say they need to be installed via a usb boot drive which is find strange.

Installation :: Won't Boot After Fresh Install

Feb 10, 2016

PC specs:
Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H
kingston v300 SSD 120gb
WD HDD 1tb

I recently built this system for a family member as a low budget media/gaming pc. This was originally setup with windows 10 on the 1tb main drive, so I know everything works. Now we decided to put an ssd in as a boot drive, and I cant seem to get it working.I wasn't able to clone the drive due to inconsistent sector sizes between the drives.

I've finally completed the install on the drive after many failed attempts but when I try to boot from it the message reads "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device".

How To Do A Fresh Install Driver Migration

Jul 29, 2015

If I do a fresh install from a USB for Windows 10, after it's installed, will all the drivers be there from 8.1? Or do I need to manually download ALL the drivers again? This seems like a huge oversight if people want to do a fresh install to not bring over old windows (registry, errors, corrupt, and otherwise) files.

Fresh Install On SSD As Primary And Storage HDD

Jul 24, 2015

I currently I have W8.1 which is running on a HDD. For Windows 10, I am upgrading to a SSD for my OS, some programs, etc. Thing is, I want to keep my HDD for a storage drive. It has many pictures, videos, songs, etc that I want to keep. Problem is, it is currently loaded with Windows 8.1 and some programs that I would also put on the SSD. How do I just get rid of Windows from it to make it my storage drive? Do I need to? Should I just get a second HDD entirely and find a way to move my pictures, video, songs, etc to it?

PC Gets Really Slow At Random On Fresh Install

Aug 20, 2015

I have freshly installed Windows 10 onto my SSD and used it fine for about a week. But when I booted it up today it took ages and when it finally booted up everything seemed fine, but after a while everything became slow. For example: launching applications would cause to freeze them, webpages refused to load (yeah the internet became slow too), I couln't open files anymore and it would not shutdown either (I could push the button but it did nothing).

When I restart it (hard reset) after it became slow it took ages to boot again, then I trimmed the ssd, I ran ADW cleaner and scanned for virusses. When I rebooted it booted fast this time like normal (It didn't become slow when doing all those things). I even played some Project Cars but after closing the game and waiting for a bit everything became slow again.

I've upgraded to 10 from W7, and I've had nothing but problems with it, so i'm concerned about the installation to a different SSD than the one I'm using, my mind is telling me it should be fine as the Upgrade happened all on the same hardware, but changing the location of installation, does that affect activation?

2 HDDs - How To Do A Completely Fresh Install With No Remains On Either HDD

May 21, 2015

As the title says the plan is to install the latest build of Windows 10 to my SSD.

Aside from the SSD which is for the OS I have a standard HDD. How do I go about formatting both hard drives so they're completely fresh?

Will the W10 install automatically format my SSD and then it would just be a case of going into Computer and formatting the HDD?

Does Fresh Install Create A Recovery Partition?

Mar 15, 2016

If so, I don't have one... I look in Drive management and SSD is all one partition, I assume 232gb is what a 250gb ssd looks like formatted. Is that going to be a problem if I ever run reset or does windows hide all those files somewhere else?

I know I had one before on my old install but it was an update from win 7.

I have a custom pc that has successfully installed Windows 10. I installed the OS on the SSD. I have two hard drives; an SSD and a HDD.

I was able to update it and still I can't use it or access it.
