So, I installed a new Intel driver on my Windows 10 PC some time ago. Now, however, Windows is telling me to (re)install the OS due to the compatibility issues with old Intel drives (1809 version). Should I proceed and update to 1903 or not?
Clear boot windows— in run windows type msconfig and go to services. check hide all microsoft services and disable all other services. go to startup and disable all applications. delete driver, restart PC and try to install driver again
If it was a home PC i will upgrade the windows 1903 version.If its a business PC then i will think about it and simply roll back to previous version. What was the driver though? did you check with Intel does it really have compatibility issues with windows 1809 or windows is wrongly recognizing it?
Its better to upgrade with 1903 version because this is more stable version than 1809.
but you can reinstall Intel driver in older version of windows also.
