I did a clean install of Windows 10 1809 (build 17763.529) on my laptop, an Eluktronics (Clevo) W650KK1, which has a GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of VRAM. I then used NVCleanstall to download the decrapified version of 430.64.

Whenever I get to the installer, it does the compatibility check and then gives me this error:


Before doing the clean install, my laptop was running 1803 and NVCleanstall worked just fine. It also works fine on my main system, which is also running 1809 (build 17763.503).

What's going on here? Did Microsoft change something in the later build? Is NVIDIA trying to force GFE (and their bloated drivers) down my throat? Does NVCleanstall need to be updated?

Windows Update automatically installed the DCH NVIDIA driver when it said "searching for graphics drivers", right the first time you logged in.

At this time NVCleanstall doesn't support the DCH drivers. It's just time required for me to add support, no technical hurdles.

Option 1) Uninstall DCH drivers, a bit complicated, but then NVCleanstall will work fine: https://www.techpowerup.com/250415/psa-nvidia-installer-cannot-continue-on-windows-october-2018-update-and-how-to-fix-it
Option 2) Install the regular NVIDIA drivers from their site, make sure to select "DCH" driver in the driver type dropdown
Option 3) Reinstall, disconnect network, bring NVCleanstall folder on USB stick, once the driver is installed Windows Update won't install the DCH driver anymore

Went with option 1.

DDU-ed the auto-installed drivers and used the install folder I saved from NVCleanstall to reinstall. Worked like a charm! Thanks!

Gotta love how Microsoft is fixing things that aren't broken.

I could imagine how some people have issues download and installing their graphics drivers (think: a grandma)

Not sure why the NVIDIA installer doesn't simply provide better messaging when a DCH <-> standard driver conflict is detected
