    For my video card drivers, whereas 8.1 only lists the old versions, should I use the newer 7 or 10 versions? Which one?

    The display driver installer may well fail if you aint using the system its meant foir so manually install the extracted installler from Device Manager. If it dont work it will bsod. Try the w7 driver.

    Sometimes its way quicker to suck it and see for yourself if you can, i always keep 30gb avilible for test installs. :)

    I usually use the Windows 7 drivers for my R9 380 (installing directly with setup.exe, no INF modifications needed) and I then add the HDMI driver from the old W8.1 drivers. That preserves WHQL certification, full Radeon Settings functionality and WDDM 1.3, along with Vulkan.

    I just installed 8.1 using a RX580, used the latest win7 driver and the hdmi one from the snappy driver tool.
