    Don't know what it is doing, but clean install is not going well. System has slowed almost to standstill. Been running for about 8hrs now. Unable to get even a cursor in search box. Not able to check navigate to see what might be happening. I can see ethernet and transfers are taking place.

    I really should go back to Win7, but I don't have the original update disk with Key with me (and I am 1000miles from home!)

    Not sure I understand.

    The clean installation of Windows 10 seemed to progress normally. I got to the initial desktop. Checked and found I had 170 build 16299.15 installed.

    Problems came after that - don't know what it is doing, but presumably checking hardware drivers and starting on updates. It has slowed down so much, I can' even get to the Updates page.
