Hello, I am preparing to clean install W8.1. Right now I'm just gathering everything I need before I proceed. This process may take a week or so before I can complete everything due to lack of available time. I have a Toshiba OEM W8.1 that is nothing but trouble. It has reached the point of last resort - which is a clean install of W8.1. I have read the great guides here at MDL, but I need guidance from those with more knowledge and experience than I ... as I have that nagging feeling that this process is going to be problematic. I have already obtained the W8.1 Core ISO using the Windows mediacreationtool.exe (onto NTFS formatted USB flash drive). I also extracted the OEM W8.1 Key. I still have questions regarding drivers. My system is AMD and I have noticed it has been widely reported on other forums that because of driver issues people cannot clean install Windows...or that their PC does not function correctly after a clean install of Windows. AMD systems seem to be very problematic. I do not know how to proceed regarding drivers. I use SlimDrivers to back-up all drivers. Thank You.
