    I'm sorry, but booting is no problem. I'm using the laptop now to test it.

    sound did not work yesterday, I left laptop on whole night, and now sound is working. I checked history windows update, there were some updates but no one has to do with the audiodriver, strange hé, anyway sound is ok.

    I made one account without password, so desktop shows up without having to logging in.

    I do need to update the drivers , or maybe only the video card, screen is to big, windows 10 uses a standard driver.

    edit: changed resolutions (from 1024 x 768 (recommended ) to 1280 x 1024 ) , screen is better.

    Maybe best to leave it without updating drivers? hmm

    If everything is working for you right now, maybe just leave things the way they are for now. Make a Complete Image Backup, using a program like Macrium Reflect, then store that backup in a safe secure place. Good insurance incase something goes wrong down the road. Always a good idea to make regular image backups. :)

    ok, good idea. one question: I'm going to buy an OEM ESD (download windows 10, no dvd). in a online shop. will this licence key be accepted by the installed windows 10 , or do I have to reinstall from scratch?

    You can change the license key without any problem.....or add a license key... no need to reinstall. :)
