RV_ Posted February 18, 2016 Report Share Posted February 18, 2016 I finally did my Desktop, a 27" touchscreen all in one Dell, with dual 32GB SSD in front of a 2TB HD, 8 GB RAM, i7 Quad Core, and quad HD resolution. It took all night because I started it and went to bed only to find this morning it wanted to tell me that it was going to eliminate Windows Media Center which I didn't use anyway. I clicked OK and it went smoothly this morning. I switched to my Surface Pro 3 tablet and my Logitech wireless keyboard to use in the meantime. So I have done 2 Windows 7 laptops, one very old Compaq 15" Celeron single core, 32 bit, One an AMD A6 quad core 17" Toshiba almost as old. Both laptops were directly updated from 7 to Windows 10 after I set them up with Libre Office etc. Flawless. Three tablets, a Surface Pro 3 i5 that was 8.1, a Dell Venue 11 Pro Atom Z3770 2 GB RAM 32 bit that was Windows 8 and had been upgraded free to 8.1. and an ASUS T200 Tablet/keyboard hybrid that was 8.1. Four desktops, one an HP mid size tower, quad core AMD 8 GB RAM and added 256GB SSD that was Windows 7, then directly to Windows 10. One a Voyo mini PC with a Z3535 Atom Quad core processor, 32 bit and 2 GB RAM. Lynn's new Lenovo All in one 20" touchscreen, quad core i5, 4 GB RAM that was Windows 8. And lastly my Main Dell 2720 all in one i7. No problem with any of them, despite having upgraded nearly every type, form factor, and brand of processor/SoC. I also was upgrading from every Version of Windows except XP and Vista, having every type of graphics and screen types, 32 and 64 bit Windows systems. For the folks that have had issues, all I can say is that if your system is not infected or has broken hardware, something had to be wrong with the installation like the user thinking it was stuck and shutting it down too soon and other known impatience scenarios that can cause corruption. I did do a Boot drive and Windows 7 System image. Here's how: "Get familiar with the Windows 10 Recovery Drive... before you need it The worst time to learn your way around the Recovery Drive is when you're facing a disaster.
