Yes this is a great post. But clearly some of you had more success than me. Since December 2015 I have tried in vain to install Win10 on my Dell 15 N5050. At first, I had black screen, then it failed to even try to recover! Then I managed to install Win7 (the default OS) back but lost the audio codec (so I share your frustrations) and finally Dell said it is not supported.

Meanwhile, I have tried again to put Win10 on and it install 50% before aborting. Every single time. Tried Microsoft support. Tey used remote to try...and despite their confidence again it only installs 50% of the way before restoring to Win7.h
Dell don't always get it right...,.my older Dell Inspiron 1545 had no problem adding Win10 (even if the partition did leave a residual Win7 on there too!). That older PC just needed audio restoring and while you can no longer use DSD with upgrade to Win10 as Dell can't actually see your PC anymore) I was able to manually get audio back.
So why is Dell 15 N5050, a newer machine, so stubborn?
