Windows 10 fresh install drivers question

HP Recommended
Phoenix 810-430qe
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP Envy Phoenix 810-430qe. I plan on doing a fresh/clean install of the upcoming Windows 10 Creators update. The drivers for my machine on the listing page. They date back to 2015. Do I still need to install those? Or just install the OS is good enough?

 

I am not even sure if the drivers would install since they are older and Windows 10 might just ignore them. Since drivers that come with the OS could be newer.

Hi,

 

After a fresh install, Windows 10 will run few updates (can be few hours) and normally it will find available drivers for you. But you may have to check Device Manager at the end to see any missing drivers and you have to re-install them yourself.

 

Regards.
