    Thanks. There's a whole lot of drivers and tools on the Asus page for this MB: https://www.asus.com/sg/Motherboards...Desk_Download/
    (Win 10 64 bit).

    So, you suggest I don't need most of them to begin with? Even chipset ones? (Intel management engine updates ,etc? (Chipset, Intel management engine etc...)

    You can install them sure, but most common motherboard and system drivers are installed automatically so it's often not necessary.
    Get the LAN and chipset drivers and the VGA if you use onboard Video and that'll get you going, then once windows is running you can install the rest if you wish.

    Microsoft strikes again...downloaded the media creation tool to burn a Win 10 image to DVD, the file size for 64bit version is now larger than will fit on a regular DVD, and my drive doesn't support dual layer. Only option now is to download and make bootable USB drive. Of course, they don't tell you that on the page, you only find out after you're wasted all the time and bandwidth downloading it already.
    Just posting that bit of info here in case anyone else is following this thread.

    From latest MS "download win 10" page

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...wpUdUnU32953)()

    A blank USB flash drive with at least 5 GB of space or blank DVD (and DVD burner) if you want to create media. We recommend using a blank USB or blank DVD, because any content on it will be deleted.
    When burning a DVD from an ISO file, if you are told the disc image file is too large you will need to use Dual Layer (DL) DVD Media.
    and of course, a SL DVD is 4.7 GB

    Yep. They must have recently changed the size of the .iso image, because the last time I downloaded it, it did fit on a SL DVD.

    and the ISO is about 4Gb, same as before .
    Try the single language download

    1607 ISO will burn to a single sided DVD

    The claimed size needed for a USB might be different, to make it bootable .And will be because there arnt 4.5G USB's , so they said 5G

    I suggest, at least try
    *** download the iso ***
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...d/windows10ISO

    and dont use a formated RW disk :-)

    You could try this to get the .iso:

    Microsoft Windows ISO Download Tool 4.20

    I ended up using the flash drive instead. Now WIndows is re-installed, so far I only have my SSD connected, I'll reinstall some commonly used programs and then try to add the two HDD's too, one by one.
    Is it worth doing a full format rather than a quick format on them before I connect them?
