Now when the new Windows 10 has arrived and if you are new to the china phone scene you will need to install preloader and MTK usb drivers on your device.

I have found that hitting the F8 during startup is not working everytime because the new machines are starting to be just too fast. So found a better way of doing it.

Start into Windows -> right click the windows start menu (bottom left corner) hold down your Shift key and select restart (Don't let go of the shift, before you are given a new blue window)

Select -> Troubleshooting -> Advanced Options -> Startup Settings press the restart button. After windows restarts you will be shown Startup Settings window here you need to select 7) Disable driver signature enforcement

After that you can follow the installation instuctions, windows will give you a red popup window telling that there is no driver signature but you can select install anyway and after that your good to go

Windows is always buggy... You just need to learn what the bugs are so you can use it... :boast: And have to say that so far I have been quite happy with my windows 10

There is another way to disable the signature check, by putting your Windows 10 into the testing mode.
