    I just tried my thumb drive on my other desktop PC and it did the same thing, black screen with a flashing cursor. These two PC's have almost identical hardware. I started another thread on this and will post there instead of cluttering up this one. https://www.tenforums.com/installatio...g-install.html

    Yes they do anywhere you start them from, They run almost like an desktop application or program. They are scalable to some extent (found some can't scale down as much as normal desktop programs can). There's also minimize, maximize and close buttons on top right of top bar.
    Does closing modern apps actually close them or do you have to go into task manager to shut them down still?

    Ugh, never tried that yet, I forgot that was happening inW8.
    Edit,
    just tried with store, waeather and Mail and it doesn't leave any traces after closing with "X". Haven't tried with other apps, I don't have any "aftermarket" ones.

    I think it closes them. At least they aren't in the taskbar after I close them.

    Alrighty
    I set this up on a spare core 2 duo machine with 4gb ram. I really like how fast and responsive it is. this machine had vista on it originally. I like it a lot.

    **EDIT**
    I tried to upload screenshots from this install, however they would not upload. I will try from my daily grinder and see if it is an IE11 issue or Win10.
    **Edit 2**
    Seems to be an issue on that machine only. I will play with it some more and see what's going on.

    I tried 2 gb in a VM but it was sluggish and stuttering. What Proc is it running?

    I think it's;
    Intel Pentium M processor 750* (1.86-GHz, 533-MHz FSB, 2-MB L2 cache) would have to fire it up to be positive.

    I won't run it in a VM, straight install.

    The machine above is a straight install. Note at rest it is using 1gb memory.

    That is a single core Dothan chip in your xp laptop. I have a feeling it might be pretty slow. The real issue is the drivers though. if there are no 7 or 8.1 drivers for that unit I have a feeling it might not be stable. If it something you want to keep and use I would likely try Linux mint 9 on it. I don't think that hardware would like 10.

    also note that the Dothan chip is a 32 bit only.
