    I just did a clean install of Win10 and half the devices, including WiFi are failing in Device Manager.

    How is this even possible? Lol.

    Any ideas?

    @sharpcolorado - Is that your result from a clean install to a new partition, or did you upgrade your existing installation? My result doing a clean install (in an attempt to dual boot) was precisely the same as @PilotGav's.

    I wiped my entire drive. Please don't tell me Win10 can't handle a fresh install on Microsoft's own hardware?!

    Can you try getting it to update drivers from Windows Update site ?
    You may have to use a USB to ethernet but its a possible solution

    My install was an upgrade - but then I also experimented with a wipe. The wipe worked just fine (See post #88 of Windows 10 on Surface Pro 3 (page 5)

    Keep in mind this is s Customer Preview, more alpha than beta. Don't expect it to act like a release product.

    I don't expect it to act like a release product. I do expect it to include drivers for a Surface Pro.

    Since you initially did an upgrade I wonder if it copied the drivers into the recovery partition... must have..
