I have Mac Mini with Windows 10 in Boot Camp.

Windows 10 Update to version 1511 10586 fails with error:

This device isn't compatible in windows 10. Contact the manufacturer for more info.

  • Intel Iris Graphics 5100 (Intel Corporation)

I tried following:

  • You could have also gone to the Intel website and installed the current Intel Windows 10 drivers – Ramhound Feb 25 '16 at 12:21
  • @Ramhound Do you know that for fact or just assuming? I am asking because some people tried installing drivers from Intel site and it didn't work. However that was about month ago, so things might have changed in the meantime. I just couldn't deal with the update issue sooner. – Dalija Prasnikar Feb 25 '16 at 12:27
  • Well I know the iGPU supports Windows 10, and I know Version 1511 required an update from AMD and Nvidia. Have I had the same problem, and solved it by updating, no I have not. But the driver you linked to was directly from Intel – Ramhound Feb 25 '16 at 12:35
  • @Ramhound At some point after I rolled back drivers to older drivers provided by Apple (Intel) Windows Update found newer drivers and updated them. And even after that 1511 update failed. So I assumed I had the latest drivers... I have this problem for last three months... one would think that this was enough time for both MS and Intel to provide proper solution without users having to hack around in any way. – Dalija Prasnikar Feb 25 '16 at 12:45
  • Intel's Windows 10 drivers are natorious for being poor. Windows Update should not be used to update display drivers – Ramhound Feb 25 '16 at 13:28

After doing following I successfully installed Windows 10 update to version 1511 10586

  1. Hide all updates except Windows 10 1511 10586 update with help of Microsoft "Show or hide updates troubleshooter"
  2. Open Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Uninstall existing graphic cards driver enter image description here
  3. Do not restart Windows after driver is uninstalled
  4. Open Settings -> Updates & Security -> and proceed with updating
