    ...Should I get my AMD drivers again? Then re-remove the catalyst tools as well? Right now, its just using those default drivers that make the screen super low res even on an HD monitor like I have, which is fine for a temporary time until I have 10 installed, so ease of use isn't an issue, its just if those drivers are necessary for this to be done or not.
    I would say, if you are able to get through the upgrade without your AMD drivers, I would do it that way. As long as you can see well-enough with the default low-res, let's keep this installation squeaky clean until we get you upgraded. Then, you can start installing display drivers and programs. Once upgraded AND "activated", all is well - you'll be able to "clean install" W10 as many times as you want/need.

    Okay. This current installation isn't perfectly clean, but I'll make sure to fresh install it one more time tomorrow then. Doesn't take too long.

    Thank you so much for the rep, guys!

    This was great to see this unfold as it did. It took team effort to solve it. One thought from someone lead to the next and so on. It'll be nice when we hear the fat lady sing!

    And yes, try to do a bare bones upgrade as much as possible, Axington. I always try to let the system run for a few days to work any kinks out before adding to it.

    I do ? Very pleased i received reps but if you don't mind , what exactly is a rep ? I hope it's not dangerous .

    Ahh, doesn't matter , we all must perish at some point.
    LOL! A "rep" is a reputation point. We give them out when they are well-deserved. You can see the little "thumbs up" below a person's post, under their My System Specs link.

    It's a good thing, not dangerous.

    p.s. FWIW I don't see much difference on my laptop with Fast Startup turned off either....but then, my system isn't the fastest in the world...Here's a thread you might want to browse. They have a little script you can run to test your startup time.

    Yes, but not repeatedly. You must spread some around to rep someone again. Please push FAQ button at the top of any page. It'll have all the info that you need. You may want to read the forum rules also if you have not already. That's at the bottom of any page.
