WinDBG symbols

So right now i'm having symbol issues with WinDBG, i can't read dumps at all because it says i don't have the right symbols. Ever since i installed Windows 10 i've been having some issues with WinDBG. Can anyone please help?

Have you seen this Laith?

Remember we have a sister forum Ten Forums

I remember them having issues with earlier builds. Might as in the BSOD section there. A Guy

Have you tried setting up WinDBG with the Windows 10 SDK?
