Windows 11 Pro 21H2
additions:
Intel Optane M10 32Gb
Steelseries Rival 710

in the near future (the next build of Windows 11 if the reports are accurate) to use a new security feature of Windows 11, it will require users to do a clean install of windows 11. Will MSI be providing either an application or webpage with links to reinstall all the updated versions of all the utilities and software and drivers that came with it from the factory?

in the past PC/noteboook makers have provided a service like this when they have models that support a newly released windows version. i really hope that MSI doesn't just leave i't;s customer base hanging in the wind. New versions of the software is not necessarily needed. all the software that came on my system under win10 1803, still works on win11 21H2. A list and links to the small amount of stuff that isn't included anywhere else would be helpful. the list of supported PC's isn't all that long thanks to win11's TPM2.0 requirement. i would say that any system with an intel 8th gen cpu and newer systems would need to use the list. the MSI drivers and utilities app is able to get me about 89% of the way there, with the intel driver and support assistant and Nvidia GeForce Experience (and Windows update) covering 10%. that the remaining 1% is what needs to be addressed. I tried as an experiment doing a clean install of windows 10 & windows 11, and then installing all the available msi utilities, software, and drivers, and it did not go well. the most interesting thing i noticed out of that, was that the intel Wi-fi adapter was for some reason mis-identified as a being made by Killer wi-fi card (rivet networks) and not intel. some of the utilities that came with the system, like dragon center 2, would not work right after doing a clean install. The msi drivers and utilities app also would not load after doing a clean install. My only guess is that there is some kind of support file added by MSI to the factory install image that is not publicly availible.

I am curious that what the list is and link. Can you provide the information for reference?

Dragon Center 2 - Did you try to follow the tutorial to perform clean installation?

What drivers and utilities are no longer working anymore except for wireless driver and Dragon Center 2?
What if you update the drivers by performing windows update or from the generic version?
Install wireless driver from Intel.
