Help installing drivers

Recommended Posts

Long story short I cloned my pc hard drive onto an m.2 for use in the VCS. Only problem is that I need to download a bunch of drivers (wifi, sound, graphics etc). I'm new to the whole pc mod community this is really the first one that I've ever tinkered with.

 

Anyhow I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction as to which drivers I need exactly, I think wifi is probably most important bc that'll get me online to dl the rest but I'm not totally sure where to look for that. A friend told me that I should look based off the wifi chip. Like I said tho I'm new to all this and learning as I go so help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

 

Also on another note my fav VCS games so far are Sir Lovelot and Danger Scavenger. Super pumped ab the VCS, have had it for a couple weeks now and haven't really touched my Switch/Xbone/PS4 since.

What OS are you using?

 

Both Windows 10 and modern Linux distributions should detect and set up most things for you.

No worry about that,

Win10 will recognise all relevant drivers you need.

All you have to do, is starting the install process, lean back and relax 😉....

The OS is already installed (and boots) onto the m.2, do I need to initiate another install process? Sorry I'm new to all this. For example I used a DVD drive to put a cd in and windows didn't have any way to play sound I'm pretty sure it looked for a drive but none were found, do I need internet access to find drivers or is that stuff local? I know I'm asking basic questions but I don't really know what I'm doing.

The best way is, to plug in a Ethernet cable (LAN cable) connected to your router.

After than boot Win10 and go to "Find Windows updates" , and let the system install all Updates and drivers ... it will reboot for a few times and everytime you should repeat the search for updates.

After everything is done, it shows you "You´re up to date - no Updates found."

Now it should works fine...

Unfortunately I live in a place where I cannot get internet access so I must use my phone as a hotspot, it sucks. So yea I think I need to find a wifi driver via my laptop, load it via USB and go from there. I'm just really not sure where to get that wifi driver.

Okay, so you have to search for an:  REALTEK RTL8822CE Win10 Driver (WLAN/BT combi module)

SI installed the 16gb ram upgrade with m.2 sata not nvme using Hasleo, i put the m.2 in a usb and imaged the drive on a pc then put it in the vcs. I had issues, i went and downloaded the amd driver pack and i ended up finding the realtekrtl8822ce on a lenovo site from google, which is funny because the ones on realteks website said, not valid for this operation system. But its easy and doable. i had to use a piece of scotch tape on the wifi antenna to keep them from coming unplugged cause they suck to put back in. but you can kind of slid the top of the case back to get the m.2 in and out. It flies fast as shit with windows.

I use win10 on my VCS and have never needed drivers for anything.  Not sure why this guy does.

Somebody else had a lot of problems with Windows 10 drivers, or a lack of them.
I suggested that they download an up-to-date installer from Microsoft Windows 10 site, which they did, and after that he had no problems.

The problem with that previous user is he had an ISO image which was a couple of years old, and the chip set are 2019/2020 as I recall.
I also had zero problems with networking etc. from a vanilla Windows 10 install.
I subsequently downloaded and installed the updated AMD driverset, but it wasn't because I had any problems; it was just to get the best.

I think driver wise it’s probably easier to install Win 10 on the VCS itself with and external drive then cloning it onto the M.2. I did this using a laptop drive 8n a little USB case then cloned with macrium reflect.

Hello,

 

REALTEK RTL8822CE drivers are present in Windows 20H2, but not in holder versions for what I have test

Most simple is download a fresh iso 20H2 whith Microsoft Media Creation Tool 20H2 

 

If you need to install holder windows version, you can use this compatble drivers from Lenovo for REALTEK RTL8822CE Wifi card. 

Realtek RTL8822CE WIFI Driver for Windows 10 64-bit (Version 1909, 2004) Tested well on 1809 (LTSC), 1909, 2004

 

Note : I don't use the .exe installer, I extract the drivers from .exe file with 7zip.

And after install it from Windows (I don't know for name for "Gestionnaire de Périphériques" in english) See below
