Editors note: GIGABYTE have not currently confirmed Windows 10 support for 'Sandy Bridge' era P67 and Z68 motherboards; however selected drivers are available for Z77-chipset motherboards. Although the number of systems with this generation of motherboard and CPU is high enough that you would expect a full driver complement to be available for Windows 10, that doesn't appear to officially be the case for launch.
