    install windows 10


      I am attempting to install the latest Windows 10, build 10074, on a Gizmo 2.


      The install starts fine, I select the Custom Install option and then get to a screen "Where do you want to install Windows" with the message "We couldn't find any drives.  To get a storage driver, click Load driver.


      Does anyone know what driver  I need to use?


      Interestingly if I browse fro a driver I can see the MicroSD that should be my hard drive, and I can also see its content.  So the card and interface is working.


      I have tried using both NTFS and FAT32 for the file-system on the card.  I also tried using Diskpart to set up my MicroSD in the same way that I set up the Flash drive that I am using as the source of my Win 10 image, making it active etc.

              Hi Clem


              I have not tried this.  The "HDD" on a Gizmo 2 is a MicroSD card slot, but I could attempt to use a second USB. 


              However, the USB drive that I am using for my OS installation media does not show up as a drive option for the Windows install, so I'm guessing this will not work.  No time to check it out right now.

              Windows Update is the premier starting point to resolve most common driver issues you might experience immediately after installing Windows 10.

              Simply launch it from Start > Settings > Update and Recovery and click Check for Updates


              Press Windows key + R

              Type: ms-settings:windowsupdate

              Hit Enter

              Click Check for updates (make sure you have an active Internet connection).

              Important Drivers you should get after installing Windows 10.

              When you perform a new install or upgrade, you should download the latest software drivers from the manufacturers website for your computer model. Important drivers include: Chipset, Video, Audio and Network (Ethernet/Wireless). For laptops, make sure you download the latest Touch Pad drivers. There are other drivers you will probably need, but you can often download these through Windows Update after have a working Internet connection setup.



              Install drivers using Device Manager

              If your driver was not detected or installed by Windows Update, you can try installing the driver manually if you have a compatible version. Windows 10 and previous versions of Windows such as Windows 7 share the same driver model, so it should work.

              Press Windows key + X

              Click Device Manager



              Once device manager is open, select the device, right click it and click Update Driver Software

              This will launch the update driver software wizard, which presents two options.

              Search automatically for updated driver software - its possible Windows might have the driver software if you have not checked it yet, if its taking too long, then the next option is usually best.

              Browse my computer for driver software - if there is a compatible driver and you already have the driver files, then all you need to do is point to it and Windows automatically install it for you.
