After searching through multiple threads I am seeing assistance at all levels on what to do when errors and BSODs occur during or after installing Win10. This is relative to ISO or upgrades, all inclusive. As I have NOT installed Win10 on any of our systems yet, I am seeking advise as well as narrowing down the main points of "preparing to upgrade," not necessarily troubleshooting a problem after the fact.
To-Do List (Prior to Download or Install of Win10)
1. Return your Over-Clocked system to it's base specs. (Memory, CPU, and Video)
2. Uninstall dedicated video drivers/software suites and return to On-Board VGA, single-monitor state (if available)
3. Leave all Home/WorkGroups, Remove shared services/drives, remove USB devices not needed (Flash, Cameras, HUBs, Printers, etc)
4. Move your system to your LAN via Cat5e+ cable (turn off laptop Wi-Fi)
5. Uninstall 3rd party Anti-virus software suites
6. Good Option: Backup your current OS/system to prevent bad roll-backs. 7. Reboot your system one last time to verify stability and confirm all residual uninstalls
8. Shutdown all other systems on your given network after steps 1-5 have been completed for all relevant systems
9. Work each system upgrades one-at-a-time, prior to creating your new WorkGroup/HomeGroup (this is more specific to network managed services and shared devices in an office environment. Not specific to home users.)
