    POLL: How Did You Install Windows 10?

    Wondering how many folks here installed Windows 10 by Updating directly from an older OS vs Clean Installing.
    If you upgraded, how did it go?
    Just curious.

    -Upgraded from Win 7 Home and it went just fine. Lot of problems with Win 10(never a one with Win 7) but it seems to have settled down with one of the recent updates.

    I've done three install/upgrades. One from 8.1, and I used an ISO that I burned to DVD, and 2 from 7 Ultimate (right from website). The installs went great, and I love the performance of Windows 10.
    My only problem so far is that I can't get a drive letter assigned to any SATA drive that I externally plug in via USB.
    IDE drives work fine, but cant see SATA. I can see them in device manager, but not in My PC.
    Driving me up a wall, as these are my backup drives.

    I would imagine most of us would, initially, have upgraded from 7 or 8 to, at least, qualify for the free upgrade.
    Since then, for me, it's been so many installs, so many different ways, I've lost count.

    Upgraded from 8.1

    A few minor issues, but reading about the issues other people had done clean installs and it didn't fix the issue so I never clean installed
