Hi, I was wondering if my motherboard would support Windows 10. It's an ASROCK H81M-GL. It supports Windows 7/8/8.1 drivers. I will surely not install windows 10 if it doesn't support it as my motherboard needs to have drivers installed (VGA, Audio etc). Thanks

Most 8.1 drivers will work on 10 just like how Vista ones worked on 7 and some 7 drivers work on 8/8.1

Your board is still rather new so I am guessing it will get support.

Intel will certainly have support. You may need to get drivers from them directly, but I think Asrock may come around soon enough too
Nvidia and AMD already have support for current cards. Older cards may be an issue.
Realtek has historically been good at supporting new operating system.

You will be more sure as the launch date get closer.

pretty much what it amounts to (for the most part), any 64-bit motherboard will support Windows 7, 8, and 10. A motherboard does not dictate an operating system. Never believe that "Windows 8.1 ready" crap that they plaster over a good amount of motherboard boxes.
