Although my HTPC runs Windows 7, I do have a laptop that runs Windows 10. It is still running Windows 10 version 1607, i.e. no forced updates to more-recent versions (so far).Yes have paused Windows Updates for 30 days to end of October, WU will then auto enable and re-install bad driver and then I can roll back again and pause update for another 30 days.
I think (not 100% sure) that I achieved this by enabling the I am using a metered internet connection setting. Allegedly, this delays installation of automatic updates, but possibly not indefinitely. In my case it seems to have delayed updates so far.
This Microsoft page says this:
Cellular data connections are set as metered by default. Wi-Fi and Ethernet network connections can be set to metered but aren't by default.
So you could try enbling this setting and waiting to see if it re-installs the bad driver. Alternatively, the DDU tool mentioned by @joecrow may achieve the result that you want (but I have never used it myself).
Yes, this occurred to me too. You need to have a suitable free slot in each system, which might be a problem if the motherboard is ITX and the one-and-only slot is already occupied (e.g. with a TV tuner card).Probably easier to buy a cheap LP video card (AMD, NVidia) and go down that path.
I am currently building a new HTPC (for over a year now ), and although I currently have an AMD card installed, my intention is to remove it and use the built-in Intel graphics adapter in order to minimise power consumption and heat production (the CPU is an Intel 6th generation i7). However, I will be using Windows 7 as the OS, and not Windows 10.
