    Windows 10 Upgrade

    So how has everyone's experience been?

    I jumped in both feet, upgraded 3 PC's and one surface. I really like the released version.

    I have had more than a few issues with the updates, one PC I had to burn down and reload OS from scratch, my gaming rig.

    ASUS sound card drivers do not like 10, there is fixes online. Catalyst doesn't seem to like it either.

    Well?

    I haven't had any problems so far, just a learning curve on how to run it.

    Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

    OK I've installed 10 on 7 systems so far- 4 have been fine, 1 has a small issue, 1 is upgrading as I type and my Asus TransformerBook T200TA I had to roll back to 8.1 cause there's a long list of items in the Device Manager that don't have drivers yet.

    Bit of history- 4 of the systems I got for nothing: 2 belonged to 2 of my grandsons (I just built them both i3-4160 rigs), 2 more were 2006-2008 Dell Optiplexs my son-in-law gave me (were from his business, he was going to play with them but had no time), 1 was another i3-4160 new build, my granddaughter's Foxconn nT535-0h0w-B-A-NA Mini and my T200TA.

    The Optiplexs are a GX620 and a 760. The 620 I spent $5 and put a Pentium D 940 dual core in it cause the D 820 in it wouldn't work with Win 10, 760 has a Core2Duo 2.8Ghz. I had plenty of DDR2-800 memory laying around (yeah I'm a computer parts pack rat ) so bumped both from 4 to 8Gb. Put 120Gb Kingston SSDs in both (Newegg had a sale 2/$89 so I got 4), put GT730 2Gb passive cooled vid cards in them. They both were running Win 7 Pro x64. Ran all the updates till I got the Win 10 icon.

    the 2 grandson's systems are a 2.5Ghz E5300 dual-core/4Gb ram/120Gb SSD/300Gb HDD/Radeon HD7750/Intel DG31PR mobo and a 2.9Ghz Athlon II X2-245/4Gb ram/120Gb SSD/500Gb HDD/Radeon HD6790/Biostar TA790GX-128M mobo. Were running 7 Pro x64.

    i3 system is a Gigabyte GA-H81M-HD3 motherboard/Intel i3-4160 3.6Ghz dual-core CPU/8Gb DDR3-1600 memory/128Gb SSD boot drive/1Tb HDD/Zotac GTX 750Ti 2Gb video card.

    Granddaughter's is a Foxconn nT535-0h0w-B-A-NA Mini / Booksize (Intel Atom D525 1.8 Ghz dual core, 4Gb memory, 350Gb HDD) Win 7 x86, upgrading going on right now. If it runs slow I have a 256Gb SSD I'll clone the HDD to.

    The 2 Optiplexs , the grandson's old systems and the new i3 all upgraded to 10 Pro fine, the only issue is the Athlon II/Biostar system won't boot if AHCI is enabled, works great in IDE mode. I know I had to use the Microsoft AHCI driver on it in 7, figure 10 is using a AMD driver that doesn't work well?

    My Transformerbook T200TA-C1, (Intel Z3795 1.6Ghz dual core, 4Gb ram, 64Gb internal storage, 64Gb SSD in keyboard dock) doesn't have all the x64 drivers yet. I read the 2Gb x86 version has had no issues upgrading to 10.

    The upgrades have been a mix of install from MS via download and install from USB from an ISO. No problems with either method. The Athlon II would seem to install fine but on the 2nd reboot would give the "inaccessible boot device" error but would roll back to win 7 w/o any problems. Switched the mode from AHCI to IDE in 7, then the BIOS and 10 installed and runs fine. Tried enabling AHCI in Win 10 registry then in BIOS but still won't boot, gives that same error. Put the BIOS back in IDE, 10 boots up fine again. SSD in IDE mode still way faster than a HDD.

    Foxconn mini at 25% installing after 40 min.

    Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

    I am waiting to install 10 on the 5 systems in the house- my i7 gaming rig, 3 AMD A series HTPCs and wife's A8 system until I've played around with these extra systems (trying to sell them on CraigsList currently). Probably do it over Labor Day weekend when I have spare time.

    US long time no see. Did 2 upgrades so far. My main gaming rig I did an update then a clean install. Everything went smooth as silk. My 2nd rig got about 75% done on in place and froze. Rollrd back and 2nd time went through. Only issue was Nvidia driver on that one was a bit hiccupy.

    Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

    I've done 3 upgrades so far.

    1 upgrade from Win 7 on an AMD Phenom II desktop. That PC is mostly used for web surfing. No issues encountered.

    1 upgrade from Win 7 on a Sony Vaio notebook (a few years old). Upgrade went fine but everything seems slower compared to Win 7.

    1 upgrade from a clean install of Win 7 on an AMD Phenom II desktop. Over the past week this PC has been used for many things including gaming. No issues encountered so far.

    Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

    Updated three computers, two home-built desktops, the other an HP laptop.

    The laptop boot time increased from 15 seconds with Win7 to about 2.5 minutes with Win10. People told me I needed to update videos drivers, which I did and that caused numerous system errors...SO! I reverted back to Win7 and will wait a while on the laptop.

    One desktop was using the preview of Win10 and I haven't had a problem with it, but I rarely use it so it's no real indication.

    The other desktop is my primary computer and I use it daily. Overall, things are going well but Origin crashes constantly. Office 365 and Thunderbird freeze with the "Not Responding" message but ultimately do start working. Office especially freezes if it's trying to access One Drive. I guess there are enough little nuisances that I plan on reinstalling Win10 once I've gone through the current game I'm playing, the Witcher (1st game) in hopes that will clear some of them up.

    I have four other "family" computers that I maintain (two are mine, two are family members). I'll eventually switch them over but not until sometime in 2016.
