  • That bug has been there for a while now - I'd say at least 3 months or so.  I have just learned to live with it.
  • A few days ago I did a clean install of Win10 onto a new SSD, replaced my Win7 SSD with it, and am running on it now. So it can be done and yes, my Win10 is fully activated. So far MS has not ...
  • Replied in Stills or Video?
    You'll be fine if you are dealing only with still photos. But if you are going to do video you will need to pay attention to disk drives. For video editing you'll want separate drives for data ...
  • Keep in mind that a fundamental design feature (or bug, depending on your point of view) causes any version of Windows from Vista on to degrade over time and thus to eventually become unusable. The ...
  • From what I can tell there was about a 12 hour period when it was possible to download, clean install, and activate Build 10240. Luckily I did it during that time.  But it seems MS shut off the ...
  • The whole situation with the WIn10 RTM is sort of ill-defined.  My system did some auto-updates too; I read that MS has released a couple of updates for the RTM version. Frankly I expected this ...
  • That's very interesting. I have the Pro version also, but what I read yesterday was a posting from a MS employee that said they have shut down the approval for all previously approved activation ...
  • I'm afraid the answer now is "It doesn't matter." The reason is that, based on what I've read today, it seems that MS has shut down the ability to activate a clean Win10 install. So even if you ...
  • Actually my Win7 system is more than 5 years old.  So it has 5 years of accumulated bloat.  I'm not surprised - but it is time to start fresh.
  • Some progress: I was able to get one of my 2 "missing " disk drives available by using Disk Manager to give it a drive letter.  For some (unknown to me) reason Win10 did not give the drive a ...
  • After trying what I saw in a posting on the Windows10 forum I was able to get my system activated OK.  But there is another issue (actually 2) I've discovered: Win10 does not recognize 2 of my 4 ...
  • Interesting. My install would not accept the activation code, so I am back on Win7. Win10 also did something to the other HDD's in my system - when I restarted with WIn7 it said I had to run ...
  • Did either of you do a clean install?  Or did you do the upgrade?  I want to do a clean install to a new SSD, but I've read this isn't possible.
  • The production release ISO file for Win10 (Build #10240) is available from several places. Just Google "Windows 10240 download" and you will find several places to get it.  Some are overloaded and ...
  • Replied in AX33 for sure
    Correctomundo! The BOSS stabilization is superb. Anything else is a wastes of time (and money.) And it takes great stills too.
  • The performance benefit SSD's provide is much faster read and write times, so your first objective should be to put things on the SSD that can benefit from that.  Windows itself is mostly read ...
  • Replied in Dual Monitors
    Since you have nVidia graphics cards you should have the nVidia Conrol Panel application in the Windows Control Panel. The nVidia Control Panel has a function called Set Up Multiple Displays; it ...
  • I considered that and actually might do it - but it's not exactly clear to me how, or if, you can make a bootable ISO file from the Win10 upgrade download.
  • My current boot drive is a 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD. The drive has my Win 7.1 system on it and all my applications. There is no data on the drive - only the OS and applications. The drive has 53GB ...
  • Again, based on all the stuff I've read so far, the "free download" of Win10 includes the ability to make an ISO file of the WIN10 installation disk, which you can then burn to your own DVD. The ...
