Steam Deck announces Windows driver: currently only Windows 10, BIOS required for Windows 11 is still in production

Early this morning, Steam Deck officially announced the launch of Windows drivers. Steam Deck supports the installation of other applications and operating systems. If the user wants to install Windows, some additional drivers are required for the best experience.

Steam Deck can only be installed on Windows at present. While Steam Deck is dual-bootable, the SteamOS installer that provides a dual-boot wizard is not yet ready. It should be noted that Steam Deck officially stated that users can only install Windows 10 at present.

Installing Windows 11 requires a new BIOS, ” currently this BIOS (with fTPM support) is still in the works and will be available soon.”

Currently, Steam Deck officially provides drivers for GPU, WiFi and Bluetooth, and is working with AMD and other partners to make audio drivers. However, users can still play audio via Bluetooth or USB-C on the Windows-installed Deck.

In addition, Steam Deck officials said that they can only provide these resources, but cannot provide support for “Windows on Deck”. If the user encounters an issue that cannot be resolved, they will need to go back to the default Steam Deck OS and follow the recovery instructions.
