Finally forced into moving off Windows7 to Win10. Bios V2.8 in B85-G41 mobo has Win8/8.1 UEFI support. I bought and plugged in the UEFI module from MSI. Can I use Win8 setting to install Win10 or is the mobo not compatible with Win10?

BIOS option that goes something more/less like:"Windows 8/8.1 compatibility mode" doesn't affect your ability to install W10. You can leave it alone.

Thank you for sharing, but with this win10 pro version I cannot install truecaller premium to make calls on my computer. Does anyone know how to fix this problem.
I really doubt that that's the problem with installation. Could you please share more information? My wild guess is that you need something like Visual C++ Redistributable, but again, It's just a guess.

Obviously no hardware problem is involved in the truecaller issue. Contact the software manufacturer.

As for Win8/8.1 setting it enables UEFI booting and should be used installing Win10 for faster booting.
