    Hi! I have upgraded my graphics card to a Asus gtx 970 and now when I try to boot into windows on my second hard drive, windows boots but the screen is still black. Is there something wrong with the display driver on windows? I have tried to reinstall windows again but since I cannot see anything I can't do anything.

    Does it show the blue Windows 10 logo and then go black for 5 minutes, then the login screen finally shows up?

    Disabling the App Readiness service fixes that issue.

    You may need to install your old gpu then install nvidia drivers so that the 970 can work. Windows can on occasion download a basic nvidia driver on its own given some time, and on a reboot may then display a screen. It's always better to then go and download the proper driver from nvidia. What card were you using prior to the 970?

    1) Do you mean that you can see Windows boot, but then goes black?

    2) Why cannot re-install Windows? Just insert the Windows installation disc, hold C during boot, then you can start the Windows installation. And YES, you can see the screen. I've tried that with my non flashed 1080Ti.

    Did you use a disc?

    Sorta having the same issue I believe. Installed new 1070ti and boots into Sierra no problem. Trying to boot into windows 10 and all I get is a black screen. No windows logo or anything. Not sure if I have to also install nvidia drivers in windows prior but would still have difficulty because nvidia software requires the gpu be installed. Any help?

    If enabled, RDP into Windows and install the NVIDIA driver.
    If not, put old card back in, enable RDP, then swap in NVIDIA card and RDP in to install the driver ;)
