    Which process did you use to create pen, just interested.

    Plankton, I have 10 running on a laptop built for XP (Dell 360) and on another built for Vista. Same for desktops. Win 10 will install on just about anything and it looks like they are expanding their driver library. The old XP desktop wouldn't sleep in 1607 but it was just updated to 1703 and it sleeps fine.


    I just don't like the no driver support for some of the mobo's I have. If MS is truly expanding the driver support, then I may reconsider doing so.

    Thanks, good to know.

    I'm trying to find a way to boot win 10 because all i can boot now is linux.

    I've choose to install linux and maintain linux but now i can't boot to win10. System folder still there but...dont know how

    That's not good. You say you chose to install linux....mmmm....not good. Did you click the option to install next to windows or just install it?

    In order to dual boot, you will need to partition your HDD, format that partition and then select that destination in the linux install. Generally, doing it this way with the novice user, the GRUB tends to overwrite the MBR. You will only see this when you go to uninstall Linux and you want be able to boot back into windows.

    Me, I prefer the multi boot way, where you use a separate HDD. The key to this set up is to remove the HDD that has windows on it. Once linux is installed, shut down and reattach windows HDD. This way windows remains the primary boot drive at all time. To change to linux, reboot and start tapping F12 after the post beep....this will bypass the BIOS and go directly to the boot menu. From there just pick the drive that has linux on and and away you go.

    Just remember; when you decide to get rid of linux, you may run into problems again not booting back into windows. The GRUB takes over the MBR and you need to fall back on that link for the fix. I would go back there now and cut/paste the work arounds into a word document save it on your PC and also print it out. It's better to have and not need then to need and not have.
