I just used the Media Creation Tool to upgrade my Win7 to win 10 yesterday. The upgrade went smoothly for the most part- there were no hardware issues and the only software that was incompatible was the windows virtual pc which i used once, so it was no big deal. After my first login to the fresh win 10, I was happy that everything seemed to be working as it's supposed to. I began setting up the Mail/Calendar, xbox, groove and video apps- thats where the problems started for me.
It turns out that if you have a local account you cant use any of the apps associated with the store/modern ui, and i could not manually log into my M$ account to access them- every time I clicked on the log in link, the window would pop up then crash immediately. Ok, guess I'll set up my account to my M$ account then...... Nope, the window pops up and crashes. So I figured I'd restart my PC as that has helped fix some problems on my ASUS tablet with Win10.
After a restart, windows loaded up and I went to change my account over, but my mouse wasn't working..... battery dead? Nope. Wait, my logitech keyboard isn't lit up? WFT? Since the mouse receiver is located in the Hub in the keyboard, then that's why the mouse isn't working. Lets try a different port, so I switched it from one of my front USB 2.0 ports to one of the 3.0 ports. Still no good? The hell? Hard reset it is then! Keyboard lights up at post, good sign, but as Windows begins to load, it goes dark! USB ports shut off. Shit, restart did nothing.
Ok, all's not lost, I still have some ps2 peripherals lying around. Another hard shut down, hook up my ps2 mouse, restart. USB ports go dark as windows loads again, but the ps2 mouse is all good. Check the device manager, and all the USB hub devices are flagged. Try to auto update the drivers, and it tells me that the drivers installed are up to date. So I uninstall all the USB controllers, rescan hardware, still flagged. Next I visit ASUS for drivers. No windows 10 drivers for my board, so I download the USB 3 drivers and AMD chipset drivers for win7/8.1 64bit and install them. Nothing, USB controllers are still flagged and no power is going to any of my USB devices. At a loss, I decide to role back to Win 7. At least that was painless and quick.
So, has anyone else run into this issue(with this board or any other system)? If so, was there a work around for it other than switching over to ps2 peripherals and an add in USB card or sticking with win 7? I wasn't expecting to have to roll back after only 2hrs, let alone over a problem with USB.
