    Would the Windows 8.1 Pro be embedded in the pc BIOS now?
    I will perform HeM method tomorrow, after all I have no data stored in this pc, just software which I could install again if everything goes OK if not I have the Macrium image I can restore.

    The Virtual memory image is fine.

    We are accustomed and typically have links to Windows 10 in this forum so you may need to make some modifications for windows 8.

    It looks like you are ready.
    If there are any BSOD then run the DM log collector.
    Chkdsk /r /v should be run in the future.

    You are very welcome!

    In case of clean install, just remember to use "gatherosstate.exe", before Win8.1 deletion, of course...Click image for larger version.

    1. Today I have created a Windows 10 ISO and burnedit to DVD.
    2. Inserted the DVD in the optical drive andmounted it to extract gatherosstate.exe
    3. Copied it to the desktop launched it and copiedthe GenuineTicket.xml file to a flash drive
    4. Restarted the pc to install Windows 10 Pro 32bit
    5. Windows installed without any issues
    6. Opened File Explorer to the %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket
    7. Copied GenuineTicket.xml to the folder
    8. Restarted Windows
    9. Checked it was activated which it was!
    10. Checked for Windows Updates and downloaded and installed them
    11. Installed Macrium Reflect Free
    12. Created Boot Menu
    13. Created and verified an image

    I have not installed any third-party software yet.
    The only issues I have now is with the display where the sign in screen is extremely fuzzy, all other screens are fine as are web images and YouTube videos as far as I have tested.
    I have am now running chkdsk C: /r /v will post back with the result.
    The display issue is as Windows advised when I tried to do the upgrade in earlier attempts the "I would have some problems with your display in Windows 10" because of Mobile Intel (R7) 4 Series Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1) Intel Corporation which as can be seen from the screenshot below Windows Updates has also installed. There are no new updates for the
    Mobile Intel (R7) 4 Series Express Chipset Family

    The reason for installing a 32bit OS is for the ACPI as shown below and because the Windows 8 Pro previously installed was a 32bit version too.

    The background on my sign in screen is out of focus too. Its not your system. Microsoft did that (the out of focus) before. Not sure why they do that except a lot of people think there is a problem.

    Otherwise congratulations on the hard work to get Win 10 installed.

    Did not realise it is a wide Windows issue.

    1) Nice progress.

    2) Run the V2 log collector and upload the results into this thread:
    BSOD - Posting Instructions

    3) Reboot the computer into safe mode with command prompt:
    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10
    (typically holding down the shift key while clicking restart)

    4) When in safe mode with command prompt run chkdsk /r /v C:

    5) Use the text and images in this link to find the chkdsk report in the event viewer > copy and paste > notepad > post a share link into this thread:
    Read Chkdsk Log in Event Viewer in Windows 10

    6) Run the V2 log collector after running chkdsk and upload into this thread
