    Hey guys,

    So I've done a complete fresh install of Win10 Pro on my PC, and in trying to reinstall the drivers, it's telling me the driver is not compatible with this version of windows...

    I'm trying to install 417.71

    It's a 1070Ti, with a 4690k on Win 10 Pro.

    I've restarted since doing the standard windows updates and no change.

    I've also tried to install the drivers as administrator to no avail.

    Any ideas?


    For clarification it's failing at the systems check

    Ok, so apparently one of the big updates has to happen first. The build is 10240 (first retail) which apparently is not supported any more.

    Nah. Other people had the same problem. I confirmed what build of Windows I had, and Nvidia posted saying that version wasn't supported for driver installation.

    ahh, just wait a while for it to auto update and it should come good then.

    Don't ever hit "check for updates" in win10... it just leads you into testing broken updates without ever agreeing to it. :/

    No because I didn't have onboard graphics.

    It does seems to relate to the Win 10 build date/version as the OP stated..from the "web" readings and so call solutions,you need to
    have updated to later build ie version 1507..or something later..bla bla..which so far mine will not do..

    Just run windows 10 update assistant and update to lattest version of windows 10 1809. Especially if you have just done a fresh install no point running a 4 year old version of windows 10.

    Download latest W10 straight from Micro's site, create bootable 8GB USB stick, install, you have latest Windows and should be good to move ahead.

    Yeah windows 10 can be temperamental when trying to update from a much older version. Personally if updating from 1507 to 1809 I would do it as a clean fresh installation of windows 10 it does mean backing important files up and re-installing any programs after install finished. Pain in the arse however usually guarantees no legacy issues are brought forward. As mentioned in a earlier post you can get windows 10 install file from microsoft and create a bootable USB. Plenty of tutorials you can google or watch via youtube on how to this.

    If I have time I'll upload a windows 10 1809 ISO to my mega account and link it. Same one from the MS website just saves you the trouble of using their media creation tool. I use Rufus to create USB image.
