    time for a nice new computer with win10 on it ,the future is here !!lol


    just for the record ,I think a 6 or 7 year old refurbish computer could have issues with win10, my thinking is its a hdd issue and the BIOS issue ..,but I could be way off on that ,, also I have 2 - 3or4 year old towers[newer ssd hardrives though ] and a acer10 switch mini laptop running win10,all were originally win8 ,and have not had any issues like you are having with yours ,not that any of that means anything, and I will got back to the earlier part of this thread ,and I would suggest updating the BIOS ,asap ,if not already done.

    edit, just for the record, they were not updated from win8,all were clean wipe of wi8 and install of win10

    If it's just an OS issue and you really hate it , just Reinstall Win8.1 on that one perhaps ......

    Windows 8


    I don't have Win 8 to reinstall. I went from 7 to the "upgrade" to 10, and it's been over 30 days so I cant go back.



    personally with my own business I would never be with only 1 Computer ....just incase... and your's sounds more critical than mine, so I hope every thing is backed up with images via Macrium Reflect etc too , to an external.

    I have Carbonite and a BlacX that I can mirror to, with Acronis.

    This is an Asus Essentio and I don't think there's a BIOS upgrade this late in the game. And like you say, it may be hdd issues too.

    I see , sorry I thought you had 8.1 to start , but yes you can go back to Win7 BUT only with a Clean install , since your 30 Days is gone....

    unless you can use one of your Carbonite or Acronis backups ? ..... do you have a full win7 Backup image ?

    You can always try Win10 again in 6-12 months as that Computer already has a Win10 digital license now. ( activation Server knows the Motherboard)

    I do, but have done a ton of work since then,and I'm not sure how it would work out. Maybe I could make sure that all my data since then is backed up to a new HD, then clone in reverse from the Win 7 clone back into this disk?

    But what a mess it would be if it failed.

    If you have a new HD , run the backup to It , not the Win10 installation HD (disconnect it) and check out the FULL Win7 install 1st to see what you have and don't . Not happy ? doesn't work for you ? then disconnect it and reconnect the Win10 one.... no harm done....

    If win 7 HD is OK , you could then connect the win10 disk back up and copy document/pics etc over , or even boot both with the Bios Boot menu for a Dual-boot at least temporarily.
