I have done a clean install of Windows 10 (64 bit) and now my WD Green WD10EADX internal Hard Disk Drive (HDD) shows up as removable hardware in Windows 10.
So I’ve searched on WD-support for Windows 10 drivers for the WD Green WD10EADX HDD. But I couldn’t find any drivers, just the notice:
So I’m asking here.
Currently the Windows 10 clean install resulted in the following drivers:
I’ve got Write caching enabled in Device Manager’s properties.
Furthermore I couldn’t find any ‘Hot Plug’ settings in the BIOS.
The chipset on my Mother Board (MB) is: Intel Q65 (Intel 6 series). But there I couldn’t find any drivers either.
I installed the Intel driver and Support Assistens (SA), but it reports: “No supported driver or software updates are available for your system.”, but that might be a pitfall. The Q65 chipset is discontinued, would that mean that it is no longer supported and therefore the SA won’t show any updates?
The currently installed driver is from 6/21/2006 !
My Computer manufacturer Acer (Acer Veriton X4610G) only provides drivers up to Windows 8 (x64) and doesn’t update them any more (out of support). Would the Windows 8 (64bit) drivers be usable in Windows 10 (64bit)?
The latest AHCI driver I could find on the Acer site was a Windows 7 one: “AHCI_Intel_10.1.0.1008_W7x86x64”. It is of later date (2010-11-21) than the currently installed driver, but will an old Win 7 driver work on Win 10 or more likely mess things up?
Can someone help me with a solution?
