Wifi driver not working on clean Windows install

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone is having the same problem as me and has been able to solve it.
If didn’t use the WIM image to install my PI X, but I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro.

I updated all the drivers using the driver pack downloaded from the website and most works, but most importantly the Wifi driver for the broadcom device does not :frowning:

Has anyone managed to get this driver working on a clean windows 10 install ?



I have done the exact same experience than you.
With a recent version of Windows there are also some drivers that I can’t install and at the end the wifi don’t work. If i use the Wim image then I can use the Wifi without problemes.
In fact it’s a choice to do, it depends of what you need.

Recently I have faced the same issue with my wifi drivers. My friend suggests me to update these drivers then I have tried it from the device manager. I did not get the solution from that. The process which I did are given below:

  1. Open Start.
  2. Search for Device Manager from the search bar.
  3. Double-click the category with the device you want to update.
  4. Right-click the device, and select the Update Driver option.
  5. Click the Search automatically for the updated driver software option.
    In these steps, I did not get my solution. Then i have tried it with a free driver updater and i got a quick solution.

I didn’t get it either. Finally I have installed the WINDOWS OEM version and after the automatic installation to the latest version of W’10 everything works correctly for me.

Hi!,How do you run Dism to put install.wim into the usb drive?. Thanks!

Hi Roberto

It is not necessary to run DISM.

First, you can install the WINDOWS OEM version (from here), activate it and only wait to have the newest Windows version from the Windows Update :wink:

Thanks Pharizna!, yes, I misunderstood the text, now its ok.
