    OK, things did NOT go as well as I had thought... ;(

    Machine did boot up just fine, but I still had the USB stick created by Acronis TI 2014 inserted.

    this morning I got some updates needing a reboot and I had removed the stick, no boot device found.

    checked Disk Management and all partitions marked as simple and no way to change that I know of. And if I put the stick back in and try to boot to the Acronis boot and software, it instead just boots into W8.1.

    Now I'm stuck and don't know what to do to get it back to booting from the HD. Any thoughts???

    You have to change the boot order back to what it was before.
    I think it should be DVD 1st, HDD 2nd.

    Do you have any hardware upgrade or attached peripheral on your hp 23-n010 other than what it originally came with? Because that may be causing the installation problem. You may want to pull them out first and then try the installation again.

    I'll look at that after I do the re-restore. I don't think that's it, but certainly could be a possibility.

    I read some more in the help for Acronis and saw that I should have checked restore disk signature which I hadn't done on the initial restore.

    And I don't have any peripherals attached to the HP other than the WD EHD I used to do the restore with for info.

    Ok. It's just so weird that W10 won't install on that PC. I just installed Win 10 on my 7 year old hp laptop running on AMD Turion cpu and it went smoothly. But it's 32-bit though. Did you try the 32 bit? Maybe that will work.

    Well, I'm restored and booting properly. Still not sure why it didn't work as it was supposed to the first time though I'm beginning to think I 'assigned' something wrong the first time I tried it. Otherwise why would the USB stick just boot and take me to Windows instead of to the Acronis stuff?

    I'm probably going to leave this alone as far as the TP goes and just use the virginized version in the VM.

    As to why it won't install as an upgrade and run as the only OS, I sure don't know. Has to be something that it doesn't like, probably some driver, possibly the Beats audio stuff.

    Could you post a link to where you read the "restore disk signature" on the Acronis site ?
    I have not heard of this before and would like to understand it.

    I didn't read it on the web, it was in the help that is part of the Acronis True Image 2014 software. It was in the help about restore options.

    OK, as usual I misunderstood. I will look for it.

    When I installed Win 10 in a VM the 64 bit version would not work for me either. Once I tried the 32 bit as a member suggested, it went in easily, no driver problems or anything else.
    I don't think your Beats stuff would stop it.

    I don't think the Beats stuff would either.

    But I'm in the process of trying it again. Just because I could, I went and downloaded the 64-bit ISO again. This time it was a little bigger than the last time. I got to wonder if I possibly had a bad download previously or not.

    Also this time I disabled the malware resident program thinking there is a possibility it interfered.

    I'm a bit away from the last boot, but will report back whichever way it turns out.
