    I've upgraded 4 very different computers from old Atoms to Core i7, two had no problems, the other two had some pretty hefty problems, so I down loaded two ISOs and upgraded from them. Upgrading the other two from ISOs went well with no problems. All of them now are purring like kittens, one of my Atoms is acting like a Core i3 with amazing boot times and general quickness.

    I think Microsoft has done an amazing job of bringing all this together, but I can understand some people having more problems than others depending on the age and type of equipment you're running.

    +1 to this. I'm wondering if some sort of driver issue might have been the source of your Truecrypt problems too? Maybe the external drives weren't being accessed properly due to the USB issue, perhaps?
    Hi,
    Well, when you consider that, with ALL USB devices disconnected I was still unable to use the keyboard on my laptop, I suspect that would rule out any USB conflict !!

    All USB drives, keyboards etc., work just fine in Win 7.

    How is it that I am unable to create or rename folders??

    Good luck to all who have successfully changed to Win 10 ---- I shall wait it out a bit (LOT) longer after this experience I think.

    Regards,

    Ian

    Hi BillyBob,
    Well we must agree to disagree on the point that you think Microsoft have done a good job on Win 10.
    I certainly do not.


    With everything experienced to date, I have tried to return to Win 7, but even there Microsoft don't appear to have got it right.

    A very speedy return to Win 7 through Windows Update I must admit, but I have been left with an Outlook (running Outlook Connector) which still thinks it is running in a Windows 10 environment and therefore refuses to download any emails.

    Happy for you with your configured machines though.

    Good luck,

    Ian

    Considering the absolutely huge numbers of configurations MS has to deal with I think they've done a tremendous job. Apple only has to deal with a handful of configurations and it cant even get that right, and with Android, most people cant even upgrade a two year old phone or tablet.

    But I feel your frustration, I had to go through it with a couple of my machines.

    BillyBob,
    I have absolutely no experience of Apple but, in my opinion, they and MS are just two huge corporations whose main aim in life is to produce (in their eyes) saleable products at as large a profit margin as is possible, and as quickly as possible too.
    I do think that, given their resources, and considering the number of third party vendors they have supporting them, a more reliable product, and one more suited to their customers requirements, could be produced.

    Your use of the word frustration is very apt. Thank you.

    Same problem, in a way.

    I have a 15gb/month allowance, for which I'm bilked (no, that's not a typo) A$110 a month.

    I have three weeks until this bilking-period ends, and have about 3.5gb left.

    So no, Windows 10 is NOT FREE.

    You just pay your ISP instead of Microsoft.

    Not impressed? You bet your sweet bippy, I'm not!!!

    And yes, I know it isn't MS' fault...

    Hi Wenda,

    I am on the same data allowance as you, but I only pay (GBP) 13.90 per month. (About A$ 29.00 I believe?)
    So yes, you are getting robbed at those rates.

    Not sure as to how you reason it is not MS's fault though, for if they had produced a flawless product in the first place, data allowances would not have been hammered so much, frustration, anger and blood pressure levels would not have been so great, and the old "puter would now be humming away quite merrily on Win 10.
    Still, it is purring away here with the OS that it knows and loves --- Win 7. May it last forever.

    Cheers,

    Ian

    Sorry, I forgot to mention it's 4G wireless (not a 'dongle' but full home wireless b/band).

    Here in Australia they seem to think wireless bandwidth is made of platinum, and charge accordingly.

    The next nasty trick in their repertoire is, when you inevitably exceed your quota, they
    slow you to a completely unusable 64kb/sec.

    I know you'll be excited to hear that my installation went without a hitch, took less than an hour, and has one very minor problem. I really like Windows 10.
