    10074 Installation Feedback: Immediate Correction Must Be Applied


    Thank you for let me in free! I'm back home after 4 years on Linux. Shift with them on the arrival of Win8 for 2 reasons that are still there: will discuss them later. Test many Beta and Candidate Release from Win95 up to Win7 (no one test Millennium I guess).

    My first impression: beautiful desktop environment (I recognize rapidly the imagination and creativity of Windows new versions setup) but many usefulness stuff. Must say that I'm pretty rusty in Windows environment...

    Wish to start with installation that was a long journey. Was on Ubuntu 15.04 Final Release and mkusb allow me to built an iso image but was never able to boot-up from. The amount of files was the same on the DVD installer.

    Shortly, the main problem that I got, It took me 4 attempts to reach the end of installation process: IT IS NOT WRITTEN ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME THAT THE INSTALLATION WILL RESTART FREQUENTLY AND THAT WE MUST LEAVE THE MEDIA OF INSTALLATION UNTIL THE END. A phrase like that one should be add: the system will restart a few times, please leave the (media) DVD or the Flashdrive IN until it's written done or ask to do so.

    I had the impression that installer was block on 2 occasions and it wasn't the case. Plus, I thought that the installation was over and I eject the DVD: nightmare, a real McCoy one. Reinstall Ubuntu twice... try to download another version on Pirate Bay but Ubuntu wouldn't allow me to do so, yes I when there and I don't believe that such basic error can be seen in 2015.

    The installer did not allow me to remain on LVM partitioning mode. Lost the fastest bootable partition that I ever run (255MB with a 4.2GB SWAP partition). Lost also HD quality minimum seting 1920 x 1080: Looks like wrong graphics drivers. Running 10074 alone. It's stable but not that quite, some time the HDD is noisy indicating saturation or too heavy load in some places.

    Regards,

    Now that you've run the gauntlet, Mike, next time should be a breeze.

    Although it may be easy to miss, there is a message close to the beginning of installation that says something like, "Your computer will restart several times" during the installation.

    I've clean installed Windows 10 several times and it gets easier each time. Here's a link to the tutorial written by Shawn (Brink) that may make it a bit easier on you. Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    Since you did have such a hard time with installation (Amazing that it installed at all, eh? Talking from experience; did the same thing), I would suggest reinstalling to iron out anything that didn't install correctly.

    Good luck!

    I wish to add that the installation was perfect. It's just the fact that it's a 3.6GB installation and it takes time, lots of time. Was running Ubuntu and happy to run Win10 alone. There's no mention at any time saying to leave the installer there, while it should. When to see the link. I succeed doing so. Thanks for the advices.

    Mike, I'm guessing that you didn't "update" to Windows 10 from another Windows OS.

    When setting up the installatiion, did you format the hard drive or just let it install over Linux?

    I'm trying to figure out why it took such a long time for your install. Mine have always taken around 30 minutes or so, which is nothing compared to the length of time it used to take for Windows.

    FWIW, although it's not necessary to format the hard drive, I always do as a matter of course.

    In deed was running Linux. It's about the time it took. Yes! The installer ask me to format the HDD and I had no choice to do so. I wanted to run it alone anyway. The 4 hours issue is just related to a lack of information during the installation.
    All the best,

    All the best,
    OK, I hate to keep bugging you, but when you click the little window at the bottom left corner, there's a tile showing a person with the "talking" balloon beside his head. That's Windows Feedback. Click on that and tell Microsoft what you think about the lack of information during installation. Don't mince words because that's what it's there for.

    I just install Intel Driver Update Utility and was able to update the graphic card. But was not able to update the chipset: failed.
    The visual rendering is now back to normal and for the better. The Chipset issue is less important for me.

    When back in Intel Driver Update Utility and there is nothing wrong there because I have the built in driver: the 10074 one. That"s why it was mention failed. It seems to be the case for many drivers....

    My guess is that drivers may be an issue for some time to come. Drivers are written by companies that make particular piece of hardware and presented to MS, Some HW manufacturers are notoriously lazy to write new drivers for new windows and some even abandon their legacy products. If you find drivers for Win 8.1, don't hesitate to use them, you should be just fine with them. I found that even some drivers for Win7 work just fine on 8/8.1 and W 10.
    Also, most drivers installed with the system and updated thru MS windows updates are just pretty basic without programs for setting them right. Notable exemption as of late are drivers for Realtek audio which comes with it's control panel.
