Can't install Windows 10 TP on Asus P5Q motherbord with ICH10R


I can't install Windows 10 Technical Preview because my hard drive isn't recognized while installing (ahci and ide mode). Windows demand driver but I tried all ich10r driver and nothing !

I have a Asus P5Q motherboard.

If you can help me. Thanks a lot.

Moved from Windows Other/Unknown Forums.

I have the same ASUS P5Q mobo fished out of the scrap bin to test Win 10 x64 with a redundant Intel Quad core - and have cobbled together a PC out fo bits.

Have installed build Win 10 x64 10074 and find that you need to download the Win7 Matrix driver from

"Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager Driver V8.9.0.1023 for Windows 32/64bit XP & Windows 32/64bit Vista & 32/64bit Windows 7.(WHQL) Intel(R) AHCI/RAID Driver Disk for Windows 32/64bit XP & Windows 32/64bit Vista & 32/64bit Windows 7.

I created a USB stick and DVD. Have had severe problems booting IDE DVDs from this board. Booted eventually from DVD, put expanded ZIP driver contents onto USB stick as E: - browse to E: when prompted that a driver needs to be installed. Untick the "hide incompatible drivers" and select "Intel ICH10R" driver. Install now completed successfully for me.

I found setup continued by reading the USB stick which held the drivers (and failed install boot)

This doesn't imply 100% compatibility it may just get you up and running enough to test Win 10  and get it up and running to do some later updates etc.

I'm now at the Win10 desktop with snowy mountain footsteps! :)

Good luck!
