    During the installation, please enter your Microsoft account and password.
    When you have Win 10 reinstalled and activated, please post back if you want to by-pass the password sign in procedure.
    It is very easy to do. But, let's not jump the gun.
    Thank you.

    One last point form my side.

    Seriously consider NOT Importing favourites from old installs into any browser that you use. rather note them all down in a file somewhere and start from scratch.

    IBMs Raporteer sw needs to be re-installed either via your bank's website or direct, the new win 10 version ....

    Thanks to all


    I would like to take the time to thank all who responded to this post. I’m back up and running and I’m happy to announce that after a clean install I no longer have to remember a password or pin#. I found some of Dink’s tuts a little confusing, so I did a total format & reinstall the original 7 Home Premium, then an upgrade to 7 Pro, then 10. A long work-around but worked for me. Again a BIG thanks to all.

    You REALY took a World Tour.

    I could have saved you a lot of time if you had asked for a tutorial clarification.
    But that is besides the point now.

    As to sign in automatically without password or PIN, please keep this tutorial on file.
    It might come in handy next time.

    Double check if you do have Windows 10 Pro and not Windows 10 Home.
    Just in case.

    Yes David, I checked the properties of ‘My Computer’ and saw that I did indeed have 10 Pro. I had read on one of Microsoft’s sites that 7 Pro was eligible for upgrade to 10 Pro and reported one could do more with it than 10 Home. Having already used 7 Pro was the deciding factor to choose the long route to 10 Pro; also I wanted to be doubly sure the C drive was totally erased.
    Not having any formal training in computer science, I’ve depended heavily on sites for advice for XP (some years ago), 7, 10, MS Office & the old Dell Community forums when stuck.

    OK. You are all set.
