    starting win 10


    Hi first post so be gentle.
    I have just upgraded to win 10 from win 7 home prem.
    Using a sony vaio laptop
    I now have to press Ctrl when the windows icon appears and ctrl alt del to progress the program to run further.
    this is not a logon issue just a start up issue
    any help appreciated
    thanks
    Andy

    I think you made 2 mistakes:

    1. To upgrade to Win10 where you had a nicely running Win7 - now you have a mess

    2. To upgrade rather than a fresh install

    My best advice is to go back to Win7.

    Nice help.

    I would do a clean install myself.

    I think what Jeff means is never mind the Windows 10 insults, just get to the help. I'm not disagreeing with your stance on Windows 10 at all; however the OP had decided to proceed with upgrading. It would be different to say, "I myself might have decided to stay with Windows 7 as it still serves my needs.", but not "you went and upgraded; now you have a mess" ....lol, OK it's a little funny. But you know what I mean.

    Just like the Linux vs Windows 10 thread. I was looking forward to making a response to the guy who thought using command shells was dumb, but since the poster was being referred to in a derogatory manner for his views, the thread got locked. I like healthy, even disagreeable debate, but making one appear to be lesser, or else taking pot shots is never a good thing.

    Then from an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt type:

    dism /export-driver /destination:E:\DriversW10

    The path in red will be whatever folder you created and drive letter on the USB flash drive.

    This will save any computer specific drivers that are not included with vanilla Windows 10. After a clean install, if you have any "unknown devices" in device manager you can upgrade the driver software, browse my computer, and select the DriversW10 folder and it will install the saved driver.
