    Windows 10 Media Creation Tool


    I got bored waiting for my 10 Pro upgrade message so I am using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to play around with installing Windows 10 Pro.

    I chose the Upgrade Now option instead of creating media.

    (step 3) https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...tallation.html

    There were lots of different windows up till now.
    So I started screenshots now.

    If I lose installed programs I will use my Macrium image to revert to 8.1 Pro.
    Be back after installing 10 or reverting.

    "If I lose installed programs I will use my Macrium image to revert to 8.1 Pro.

    Unless of course the activation key becomes tagged to your motherboard+nic+win10 and it won't see you as activated because you would then be back on Windows 8.1.....

    Trying to create a dual boot system with the prior version and the current version, but can't get Win10 activated because it wants me to put it on top of the prior version...

    win 10 home

    Mine was stuck at 82% and no primary disk activity. External USB drive was showing some life. I unplugged that and the USB pendrive, and the 82% jumped immediately upwards.

    It wasn't a smooth as butter upgrade.

    Got a black screen with a cursor & no activity.
    Waited a long time.
    Reverted to 8.1 Pro with factory recovery disks & Macrium image.
