I need to install Windows 10 pro.
On your website, I can not find Windows 10 drivers for my motherboard Asrock Z77 Extreme4 Star. (purchased 2 years ago)
The drivers Windows 10 is planned for when? Confused
I see that the drivers are already available for motherboards Z87 chipset ....
I hope in any case that is due out! Otherwise I think never buy Asrock component in the future.
Thank you to bring me a clear and honest answer on this.

First of all, any and ALL drivers we find on a board's download page are supplied by the manufacture of the various chips used on a board, such as Intel, Realtek, Atheros, ASMedia, etc.

ASRock supplies their own drivers only for the special features they add to a mother board, such as XFast RAM.

Any and ALL drivers for Windows 10 also depends upon the manufactures providing drivers that will support the various chips on your board with Windows 10.

For example, so far I don't see any driver for the ASMedia 1061 SATA chip used on the Z77 Extreme4 board from ASMedia for use with Windows 10. That chip is also used with many ASRock Z87 and Z97 boards.

ASRock has been updating the download pages of their many mother board models with the Windows 10 drivers that are available to them at this time. It will take some time before the older boards like yours to get these updates.

It is possible that some chips will not get driver updates for Windows 10, as the older models may be no longer supported by the manufacture. Examples of this are the Nvidia chipsets used on some AMD processor compatible boards. Mother board manufactures can't do anything about that.

Windows 10 will install on a PC with your mother board just fine, as it has many drivers included with it for use with the many different chips in use today. In some cases, generic Microsoft drivers may be used when others are not available.

Windows 10 Update will also find and install appropriate drivers automatically after Windows 10 is installed.

You can always try the applicable drivers for Win 10 posted now for the Z97 or Z87 boards, the Intel drivers should work on a Z77 board. If they are not compatible, they simply will not install.

Thanks for your answer, Parsec.
I understand that I have to look separately each controller on the motherboard ...
But honestly, I would have preferred that Asrock do the work for me.
Especially a motherboard with a Z77 chipset and i7 3770K, are far from being "old". Ouch

While searching, I found some drivers:
Intel chipset: (win10)
Intel VGA: 15.33.38 (win10)
Intel USB3: (win7 only)
Intel Rapid Storage: (win10 but from Z87...)
Realtek Audio: R279 (win10 but not specified for ALC898)
ASMedia SATA: (win10 but not specified for ASM1061)
ASMedia USB3: (win8.1 , not win10 for ASM1042)
Broadcom LAN: (win10 but not specified for BCM57781)
I would try this, with fingers crossed ...

If people are looking for Asrock Z77 Extreme4 win10 drivers, and they found "compatible" drivers unofficial, they make a return here please.
Thank you in advance. Beer

PS: sorry for my bad english too ! Big smile
