Planned to clean reinstall Windows 10 - Stage 3 question

John Hyatt

I'm having issue with my Windows (not being able to update), I planned to run a clean reinstall the Windows to eliminate the issue - through I couldn't get it fixed with multiple suggestions from online.

I planned to disable the Sim Commander and back up everything (I haven't use the new cloud, yet...)

But my concern about after Window reinstall - getting Stage 3 back to work again. I remember when I assembled it and I had trouble getting it running and I ended up asked someone at SimXperience to do a remote to fix the issue. I remember he had to use Windows Update sub-menu to get those actuators to work. 

The question is, once I got the Windows reinstalled - will I have to go through getting actuators to recognized by Windows again?

-Make note of your Sim Commander license code. (You'll need it when reinstalling). You can find it on our website at the bottom of your order.

-Note your actuator serial numbers. You'll need to know which actuator is left, right and rear.

Beyond that, you may need the following knowledge:
