I don't know - I'm kind of excited about getting rid of Windows 10!
I reviewed my post, Doo Daa Loo, from 1.5 years ago. The throttle problem is between Windows and CH Control Manager. If I don't use the CH software, the throttle does not disconnect, but I only get about 50% range on the mini stick, and for thrusters, that is not acceptable. And the problem definitely appeared with Win 10 - not when I got the Rift. CH said Windows needs to fix the problem, and they haven't yet. I wish I know why some CH Throttle users don't have a problem, and that's why I thought it might be mobo related, at least partially.
And I think Win 10 does have something to do with power issues as they keep tying to shut everything down to save the planet. <_< I've also been having a problem recently where the computer just freezes, sometimes for up to 10-15 seconds or maybe more. This is just doing normal windows stuff like email or browsing. And this is just since the Fall Creators Update.
Anyway, I'm just about set. One more back up of Win10 and then format the drive and put Win7 back on. Then add just the stuff I need to play ED and cross my fingers. If that works, I should be good for at least 3 years - about the time I'll hopefully be building a new system for real generation 2 VR (maybe 2.5). And hopefully by then there will be Linux port of ED (wishful thinking).
