I am using linux mint 18 cinnamon , looks similar to windows and all drivers installs automatically .
just install it and download the miner and give it a go .
you might want to manually lower the tdp though , using " sudo nvidia-smi -i 1 -pl 225"
where -i 1 is your gpu number and -pl 225 is the watt limit . ( this is a 1080ti gpu number 1 on my rig )
those numbers you change them according to your rig and GPUs .
remember you have to be root to do that , to be a root you need to type " sudo -i " then enter your password.
for my part I installed it while connecting only one GPU to automatically install nvidia driver . and after adding the rest it recognized them all .
rig runs solid no issues whatsoever.
you should be up and runing in less than 30 minutes.
