    that is how i feel because i have had more issues than i care to begin to count under 10. i never had these issues under 7. and to add to that i don't have all the money in the world like some people have and cant just get up on a whim and go out and buy a new system board that is 10 compatible. thats not happening as a do not have the funds to do that at the present time. and until i do thats not happening any time soon.
    So it doesn't matter that your hardware is not compatible with the OS?? Blame and get mad at MS for 10?? I understand that people can't always upgrade their PC's but to put the blame on MS for your old hardware is.. well silly to me at least.

    But,, have fun with the rant.

    If his MOBO was NOT compatible with Windows 10, why did MS allow the install to even happen?

    Matt, who told you your Motherboard was not compatible with Windows 10? A P67 Motherboard is compatible. I think it's possible your problems lie somewhere else. What version and Build of Windows 10 are you using? Can you boot into Windows 10?

    Your P67 motherboard was released in 2011, which as far as computers go, is fairly recent. I upgraded a Laptop that was at least 12 years old, and came with Vista installed on it.

    well my issues are the fact that my mb is technically not 10 compatible. that and the fact that it was just using very generic and basic drivers to function under 10. and because it was just using very basic drivers to function that is where my issues started. windows 10 would not shut down my system completely as it had under 7. that in turn caused me to do a hard shutdown where apparently it would not fully turn off as it should but instead just partially like rebooted or something in turn causing it to damage the the startup file and then when i tried to access my flash drive with older versions of 10 on it to try and reinstall to fix the issue i could not access the flash drive as for some reason my mb boot menu was not detecting or allowing the flash drive to show up.I then tried to reinstall 7 on a new section of the drive that the messed up 10 is on and i still got nowhere. I tried to boot into 7 and the hard drive light would just sit there and stay lit up but would not flicker or do anything to show that it was trying to load windows. I am contacting wd on both issues on the hd issue and the backup drive issue because this is garbage. fortunately if there is a way to transfer everything on my older 2 drives to the new one once i get the new one I will because right now i don't have any other alternative.
    Matt, did you try a clean install once the W10 upgrade was activated? The P55 W10 upgrade I did lasted all of five minutes before I clean installed. The P55 was intoduced before the P67 so your motherboard shouldn't be a problem.

    now i cant repair the windows 10 install because i cant access my flash drive to try and reinstall 10 from a older version.
    If your motherboard does not support booting from USB, you should create a bootable DVD then.

    I've lost everything i had on my system because i had to do a clean install of windows 7 onto one volume of the drive
    You do not have to format a volume to install Windows.
    For the future, keep essential files on a separate partition.
    For Windows use something like 50GB partition, that will do.

    my mb is a issue w 10 though and i know this to be true because as i said before the board is not 10 compatible according to tech support at asus regardless of whether or not a older board was used in your case. in my case it is not because as i also mentioned before the system would not shutdown completely as it would under 7. and that in turn caused me to do a hard shutdown which in turn caused the startup file data for w 10 to be lost and or corrupted.

    the tech support people at asus told me this. and i feel this could very well be true because as i mentioned before and will say again my system would not shutdown completely under 10 as it did just fine under 7. and just because you have had luck with it does not mean someone else will. I have had horrible luck lately when it comes to computers. and thats just the start. I could go on and on and on but its not worth it imo. there is nothing i can do to fix my drive at all. it is beyond unrepairable at this point. I've already contacted wd on this and they are sending me a replacement as the one that went bad has a 5 year warranty on it. but then i have to figure out how to get the data off 2 older hard drives put onto the new one.

    no i couldn't even boot into 10 at all. it is the drive that is bad which has caused both versions of windows to load very very slowly which is very very rarely and most of the time not at all.

    This really doesn't make any sense, None of my major components are officially compatible with W10 or W8/8.1 (according to manufacturers), some like TV card, scanner, printer, predate even W7 and yet everything works. I also have printer (HP Lj4) that was made in W95 era and it works.
    I have successfully installed W8 and 10 to few computers that were made at the time W7 just came out.
