Community Moderator Edit 5/31/2015 - Info below was for earlier build.

Hi All,

The Surface team is working with Intel to get a pre-release Windows 10 driver set published to Windows Update in the near future.  Please keep checking Windows Update for the new driver set.

Thanks,

Josh_F

MODERATOR EDIT (May 13, 2015):  We have a pre-release Windows 10 driver set for Surface 3 published to Windows Update.  If you have installed Windows 10 on your Surface 3, please visit Windows Update and install these drivers.

There are reports on Twitter and here in the Forums of failures to install/upgrade to 10130 on the Surface 3. Some are reporting a phantom uninitialized disk that can't be removed. More info as it becomes available.

Please do not install/upgrade to build 10130 on the Surface 3.
