I have older machines that I use for business, and I can't afford any major down time! A few hours is okay, so hearing of your experience was very valuable to me.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to deliver such wonderful and detailed information. The part about the "Product ID" bypass - priceless!

Warmly,

Quinn Eurich

Bob,
I had the exact experience you had over the weekend with entering the Windows 7 product key, only to find that little SKIP button after getting a little concerned things weren't going to go well.
In the end everything installed, no problems, I now have an activated Windows 10 PC.

Thanks, Bob, for this great article! Like many others I'm waiting for my invitation to install Windows 10, watching daily my little Get Windows 10 icon in the system trays of my desktop and laptop. I'm pretty sure you will be sending more info on 10 as it evolves, so I'll be saving this and other articles before I take the plunge.

I jumped right into win10 with my Dell Inspiron 64 bit and it was a BIG mistake, my windows media was gone [unable to repair or fix] [no video's of any kind] my control panel never worked right, my Canon printer wouldn't work, [IT WAS EXCEPTIONALLY SLOWER IN ALL ASPECTS, I actually sat reading a book waiting to change pages or sites (I have 4062 MB memory installed [the maximum] for this machine]
fortunately switching back was flawless and easy.
I will keep my windows 7 professional as long as possible, thank you !!!!!

My copy of Windows 10 downloaded. I have tried to install it several times and get the following "We couldn't update the system partition." The installation is cancelled with the error 80240020. I went to several troubleshooting sites and discovered that a lot of folks are having the same problem. I downloaded the program to a 32 GB USB drive, but the problem continues.

You give it a rave review, but from what I hear, the total lack of privacy has been amplified tenfold. You may as well have Godzilla sitting on your desktop. Yet another mousetrap built by geeks who have nothing better to do.

Have tried to update to 10 three times. 8.1 computer less than a month old. Update gets thru the installing Windows 10 Medial then it vanishes. No error code, nothing. The only thing I see is it vanishes into the IE-11 icon. It is highlighted. Clicking on the icon just open IE-11. Can not find the Windows 10 install anywhere on computer.

Thanks, Bob!
Showing how to deal with the "small" glitches is invaluable.

So do I take it that Windows 10 doesn't remove existing folders and files? Normally with a new OS any existing programs have to be copied back over. Thanks for a very helpful site!

I appreciate all the great info you have given us on Windows 10. But I am a Windows 7 user (on 4 PC's), and I love Win 7 and plan to keep it as long as Microsoft supports it. But considering how many tools I use every day would be lost (Win Media Player, for one), why would ANYone using Windows 7 consider Windows 10? Sounds like a Microsoft scam to get more money, to me.

One of our computers has got the update - the video player computer lowest spec of the lot - and now it is slower starting up with 10 than 8.1.

Herself is sulking as her i7 brand spanking new laptop is just sitting there waiting patiently - unlike it's owner. So you may become the Great Bob giver of all computing genius stuff for the upgrade link! Thanks!

The only big wobble was trying to turn the upgraded computer off - window start key - power - shutdown had me scratching my head for a few - there had to be a glitch somewhere.

Thanks Bob!

Re: "so I decided to see how a Windows 10 upgrade would go on an older, middle-of-the-road system."

GREAT IDEA! I feel better about upgrading now, but I'm still going to wait a few months before I do it. ; )

I would love to upgrade my Windows 7 Pro, but I'm worried about some of my older programs. Sure wish Windows 10 Setup will alert you if your old PROGRAMS can’t handle the new OS.

Reports I've heard say that Win 10 makes it almost impossible to use the browser of choice if it's other than that provided with Win 10. I'm using Firefox and I don't plan to change. Comments??

so far the ISO (as burned to double layer DVD - too big for ordinary DVD) hasn't worked for my computers here in the UK - I followed the advice of various forum experts and recreated the ISO "as administrator" and changed my computer's language from UK to USA English beofre installing but no luck so far (always end up with "something happened"). Any ideas?

Win 10 install using Dvd on home premium,64 bit went very well
Programs from win 7 all work, including office 2007
It reminded me of installing apples Os10 ,where everything worked afterwards

We got a "cannot upgrade" message saying our nvidia geforce graphics driver was not supported, or something like that, on hubby's older Dell. Now running and liking Windows 7 on your recommendation, an upgrade from XP. Is there a workaround so that we can use Windows10 on that machine?
Thanks for the great installation tips.
