For those running Win10 and/or otherwise have no other choice, see the workaround posted by Cetus35 top of Page 5.

I haven't used or tried win-10 on this system but the update loaded on 6/26 on a new build and installed 7 os :/
I'm still flipping coins on win-10 anyway as to how or if I use 10 at all
This issue will go in the negatives section lol

Wouldn't win-10 load that update anyway it is an os that picking and choosing updates is not all that possible.

I have already read the work around and I would not do such a work around if it was my computer.

Who knows what problems one will encounter down the road.
Of course one can do with their computer as one sees fit.

I just give my opinion. Some will like it and some will not.

I'm still trying to figure out why someone would install a new os= any os while still overclocking in the bios

When one has a computer with problems, one of the last things to do is update the bios. Bios version is seldom the problem.

Intel cpu information should be got from Intel.
Bios information should be got from your motherboard manufacture.
Keep Microsoft the hell out of both.
The update is provided by microsoft and in win10, carried with the os. I have no problem with my cpu or my motherboard without such update, my bios sees my cpu just fine, my device manager in windows even see my 6 core/12 thread just fine, it is however windows, only uses one core, two thread (that is with all the work I have to do get win 10 install), I am still not saying this is the 100% reason for my issue, but as you were saying, why is this windows update crashed my bios and cpu? seems to be a windows problem to me, not 100% microsoft, but microsoft is surely responsible to fix this. I really think MS and intel had a communication error cause all this, MS is saying that the cpu detected a hardware error so that MS can't install/operate, that's as far as I understand the problem

I have given up on win10 as of right now after almost two weeks of trying, win10 carries this update from day1, so there is no way around it.

I have not been able to run win10 successfully... I realize that KB3064209 is now listed under important update instead optional, I had to hide it and installed all other update and my OS runs fine.
At this point, I don't know what to do, when will I be able to run win 10? until sp1? where is the asus bios update?
Hi kanzy,
I made a post above on how to successfully install Windows 10. Disable so there is only 1 core running, install Windows 10, rename or delete C:\Windows\System32\mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll, go back into the BIOS and re-enable the core (or cores). Everything will work fine from there.

And I ask since posters mention that their computer's reboot right after a garbled screen is shown.
Hi GoneToPlaid,

I also have an NVIDIA card (GTX 650) and my BIOS defaults to 100MHz and I have never changed it but this doesn't seem to be the cause of any of the problems mentioned in this thread.

I do know that this NVIDIA card (I've been loyal for at least 10 years now) is my last. I have had to deal with way, way too many "The NVIDIA driver blank-blank has quit working and Windows has restarted it". I'm sick of it. It's not a particular card. I've dealt with this for years with NVIDIA.

AMD Radeon, here I come.

Hi Layback Bear,

Say you knew of a workaround that would fix a problem that was causing you much desperation and hair pulling trying to upgrade to Windows 10 and you wouldn't use it?

I don't get it.

You did say that it was just your opinion and some would like it and some would not. It's not that I like or dislike it, I just don't understand it.

Then again, I never was the sharpest tool in the shed.

Because 90% of the time it works? I'm just saying..

I never have had to remove an overclock (before now) to install an OS and I've installed a few in my day.

If you are really, really pushing it and your system is half-ass unstable to start with, then yes, it's probably a good idea to get rid of the OC first.

I'm of the "If it's not stable, I'm not done tweaking yet" school. If an OC won't run stable for 2 or 3 days of IBT set to Maximum, I lower my OC settings and try again.

And yes I've read the many posts by goofball wannabe overclockers saying things like "I have a Pentium G3258 3.20GHz OC to 4.8 on air!!! I must have a problem somewhere, though, because when I try to open my game I get a BSOD every time"

That particular goofball should definitely follow your advice and get rid of that OC. (And stay away from it until he reads, reads, then reads some more about how to OC the right way.)
