Windows 10: Win 10 SCU Clean Install? Solved

    I don't really see anything in the SCU that makes me yell "I NEED IT". My desire for it, is to just be up to date so if MS releases a new CU soon after saying you must have the SCU to get this update blah blah.

    I honestly would like to wait until I can afford a new Samsung SSD to replace my older Mushkin that is older than me in HDD years, before I clean install the SCU from the MCT. I doubt I will be able too though.

    Can I delay these type of updates, running Windows Home?

    Nope.

    I don`t use Home, if there are ways, I`m sure someone will post them.
    The registry settings for these Pro 'defer' options are listed in Option Two of this tutorial.

    It was reported in post #45 of that thread that the registry settings work in Home too.

    I'm not a big fan of hacking the registry.
    If it were meant to be, I wouldn't need to use a registry hack.
    The whole idea of a Pro and Home version, to me seems dumb, but I'm not the CEO of Microsoft.

    Like I said, if you want to post a shot of Disk Management and tell what you think is wrong, we can easily fix it with Partition Wizard.

    It's not really a hack, all you are doing in this case is changing registry settings that can be changed in Pro using the Setting app, but in Home that part of the Settings app has been removed so you are stuck with the defaults. Still, if editing the registry makes you nervous then it's safest not to.

    As for Home vs. Pro, the main point of Pro is the ability to join a Domain, something very few (if any) home users need.

    I posted my Disk Management question here...
    Disk Management Query Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    I was given what I believe was pretty good suggestions.
    However, if you want to have a look.
    Perhaps you may have a better suggestion, than the one I planed on going with.

    I'd rather not make changes to the registry, if I can help it.
    The way I feel, is that I shouldn't have the need to go into the registry in the first place.

    This still seems kind of redundant to me.
    They could have released Windows Home with all the same features that Pro offers.
    Without having to remove any features.
    It would just be Windows and Windows Enterprise.
    Instead, they divided the market to make money.
    I don't see the need, to have all these different versions of the same thing.

    I agree with others in that thread, and think you should just wait and clean install the Spring Creators Update.

    One thing that jumps out at me in your specs is the Kingston memory, it may be slowing your Corsair memory down.

    If you mix memory with different speeds, all the memory will run at the slower speed.

    What speed does Task Manager show your memory is running at ?

    Yes, without a doubt.
    I also feel that's the best plan.
    Thanks AddRAM, for taking the time to look over that thread.
