This bugs me every time I build a new computer and install Windows 10 on it. It's nothing I'm doing differently than the other 30 or so computers I've built and installed Windows 10 on. I'm using a USB drive that I created with FCU from the Media Creation Tool. Most of the installs I do with it work fine on Dells or HPs or other OEMs. The Start Menu is full of bright and shinny icons.
But it seems sometimes when I install on custom hardware, like an ASUS motherboard, the Start Menu never completes filling in even though I go through the whole process of installing necessary drivers and then completely run Windows Update. I now have 12 down arrows on the start menu that should be links to programs/apps. The only thing I can do is unpin all of them and try to reconstruct what should have been there by pinning new links. But I don't know what was there and they're probably not needed for me or my customer. But it's just annoying anyway.
Does anyone know why the Start Menu icons don't complete with a brand new install on a brand new hard drive?
