    insider build 10586.3 win10 pro 64

    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

    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.

    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.
