    Yeah don't worry it installed the 15.7 Catalyst driver, I should be fine in that regard.

    Following up on the SFC & Dism issues - have you tried Dism on the fresh install?

    Let Windows run for a day or two before following the reset instructions.

    If you get the 0x800f0906 error, try resetting Windows Update components:

    Launch an elevated Command Prompt
    Execute the following commands

    net stop wuauserv
    cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution
    ren Download Download.old
    net start wuauserv
    net stop bits
    net start bits
    net stop cryptsvc
    cd %systemroot%\system32
    ren catroot2 catroot2old
    net start cryptsvc
    cd \

    You can copy the lines above and paste them into the Command window

    Then restart your machine and try Dism.
    edit: Then restart your machine, run Windows Update (it might take a while after the reset) and then try Dism.

    Haven't tried DISM yet but SFC reported no integrity violations. I guess that's a start. Should I still do DISM?

    Good news on SFC.

    I think the clean install solved the issue.
    Give the new install a few days and then yes, please run Dism to test if it returns and run errors (0x800f0906). If it runs and reports integrity errors, that's something different - this test is just to see if Dism runs

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    If you do get the error, wait a few days for Win10 to 'clean itself up' before running the Windows reset commands in post# 43. When I ran the WU reset - it took a while (5-10) minutes) for Windows to 'settle down'.

    • Windows update too a long time to load - not surprising.

    • Two Start tiles (both PowerShell links) changed position and size - this issue also occurred in the preview releases, so it's probably still a bug that shows up less frequently. I just re-sized the tiles and put them back where they were.

    • I couldn't launch anything elevated - that concerned me, but Windows cleared that up by itself - very nice! If your experience differs, try restarting the machine after giving Windows a fair chance to do any system configuration checks that it normally does (security on special files, required services started, etc)


    Thanks - you're doing a great job providing feedback and acting on suggestions.

    DISM is running, hope it doesn't stay on 20% for hours again like the first time. Thanks.


    Edit: well it already finished, is that possible? https://i.imgur.com/w3iie5b.png

    Excellent news.

    Is that possible? Sure, a Fresh install doesn't require too much checking.

    The 20% does seem to be where the Dism progress sits for a while. I don't know why, but once Dism finishes those initial checks, the progress goes fairly quick.

    I usually don't watch the progress so I rarely see the interim percentage complete. I launch it and it gets to 20% then I do something else - when I return to the screen, it's 100%. If it's not, then I might start digging. Most of the time it just takes time - how much? It depends on the work it has to do - 3 or 4 hours is when I get concerned enough to think there might be an issue.

    Even then I resist the temptation to cancel the command - if it runs for more than 12 hours - there's probably a problem that requires a bigger hammer

    Take your time adding programs back in to your system, add one and see how the program and system behaves. then add another and make sure things are running well. It takes time, but if one program does cause an issue, you know which one. Uninstall the problematic program, then keep going with other programs.

    You can later investigate any programs that cause issues - usually an updated installer, updated co-requisite software, or an updated program resolves most software 'conflicts'

    Cool, will do, thank you very much. But I really do hope it was because I did the upgrade and not a fresh install, it's hard to 'settle down' again knowing there's a posibility I could run into the BSOD again.

    Your welcome - the credit goes mostly to essenbe.

    I think you'll be alright - there were a lot of changes to Windows and migration is sometimes problematic, but rarely catastrophic.

    If you do run into another issue, you know where to come for help
