do you have a driver for the microSD card slot in windows 8.1? it does not work. I tried disabling driver signing and installing all the drivers but still nothing. it only works in 10 so far. I find it runs 8.1 really much faster too. also the audio drivers don't work in 8.1, or bluetooth/wifi

Hi,

Yes, I had to disable driver signature verification in order to install most of them, however after I went through the whole list of drivers the SD card port still fails to work. Same for the audio, even though the realtek drivers installed fine.

would prefer to use win8.1 because it runs faster than win10 for me but really would like to use the sd card port.

which driver in the pack specifically is for the sd card slot?

I also tried installing a generic intel INF driver update pack but no luck.
