    I tried to boot from installation disk and could not. Help! Windows 10 was running great before this.

    If you have not tried this, when the computer shows the welcome install screen, press the Shift+F10 key to use the command prompt.


    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /fixmbr

    if that still fails, try again and do this

    bootrec /rebuildbcd
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /fixmbr

    Good luck

    Whew. Just read through the lot here! I was lucky. A trip to the dentist (that is NEVER lucky) but when I came back, 9879 was loaded and I just hit restart.

    Two things that were mentioned in posts.

    One Drive was certainly screwed around with. I ended up deleting my old OneDrive folder and letting the "new" OneDrive create a new folder. Copy any folder that you want to have in the OneDrive.

    I donno what version my install.esd is. It has a creation date of Oct 9th (the date of 9860 version) but the readme.txt says 9879! It is 2.58GB in size. Is there any way to tell which version this file truly is?

    Something is not right with the power options.
    I left my PC to take a shower and when I came back all my 4 monitors are OFF. So, I went to Plan settings to change it to "Never" but it was already set to "Never" (both display and sleep settings). But how come my monitors still go off? Screensaver is also set to "None". Anyone here have the same issue?

    Here's the exact size of US English Build 9879 x64 esd file:

    If you want to you could also make an ISO file of that ESD (tutorial) which can then be burned to DVD or USB to be used as install media for Build 9879 clean install. From ISO file you can then find out the exact version information with one command like this:

    1.) Mount the ISO as virtual DVD drive by right clicking it and selecting Mount, alternatively also double clicking the ISO will mount it:

    2.) Check the drive letter your new virtual DVD drive got. Here in my case it is the J: drive:

    3.) Now give the following command in an elevated command prompt, replacing the drive letter (highlighted) with your actual drive letter for the virtual DVD drive:
    Code:
    DISM /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:J:\Sources\Install.wim /index:1
    That's it, the complete version information is shown:

    Oh? In what way? I have my doubts also.
    I am of the adage "..if it isn't broke don't fix it",

    and I find zero reason to change the functionality of Windows 7 menu. I can understand if they added a toggle to turn off/on the tile menu, but as it is they are just a jumble of alphabetized entries. You can't move anything or change anything and the pin to list is just silly. Plus I find removing the properties function for entries just wrong.

    I also don't like that they removed the hot corners and slide in options from the top and bottom. I don't like that they removed the desktop tile from the start screen. I think it poor planning to have 3 separate control panels (control panel, PC settings, and zPC settings).

    I don't like not being able to switch between desktop view and start screen view easily.

    The start screen has no personalizing that I found.

    But now I am starting to ramble, there are so many things I dislike about it.
    Why couldn't they just have enhanced previous versions instead of reworking it, into a ball of string?

    ...just very disappointed, at this point I am dreading to see the end product and can't stand to watch previous versions butchered and hacked to death.

    It seems that you like the functionality of 7 and the interface of 8.

    10 is the product of all the "likes" from 7 and all the "hate" from 8. I think you should start looking for a linux distro that will work for you. Win 10 seems to be out of your options.
    Well I am not quite certain which part of Windows 10 resembles Windows 7 that you are referring to, but even with that said;

    After using Microsoft software for over 30 years,
    Yes I could change to Linux or OSX, or I can stay with Win7 or Windows 8.1 with my Start8, all of which are very good operating systems.

    I am content with Windows 8.1 and my Start8 menu, I see no reason to change (at least not to Windows 10, it is my least favorite), IMHO Windows 10 is simply not very elegant, but I will keep your suggestion in mind.

    Installed to a vhd and it's running well. Thankfully, the issue with the OneDrive screen at boot has disappeared.

    Yes, although a minor issue it was really annoying.

    Interesting enough, it's not totally fixed, though. If you kill the Explorer process for any reason and re-launch Explorer, the first run OneDrive splash screen will be presented.

    This update has virtually killed off my use of onedrive

    I don't want to download everything from my onedrive just so I can see it in file explorer, what happens when data stored on onedrive gets higher than the amount of local storage

    Previous way was so much easier
