    Disk cleanup in windows itself.
    C: disk properties > Disk cleanup > Clean system files. There you have Previous installation etc.

    Please give a link to a post here at the Ten Forums asking the OP with an issue if the OP has turned his computer on. I would really love to see a post like that.

    What you are saying is that we should, when trying to assist the users, think that all of the members asking help already know more than an average user? That although we have seen it over and over again that quite often the issue is due a very basic thing like having Fast Startup on or trying to use a standard account to do something requiring an admin account, even so we should always forget the most obvious reasons for various issues because everyone should already know that?

    What an idiotic post!

    I think it is you who missed my point. Want to bet?

    A Windows 7 to 10 upgrade thread in 2020 or long before that will receive less than 10 replies :)

    A Windows 8/8.1 to 10 upgrade thread in 2023 or long before that will receive less than 1 reply because it would not even be read :)
    You would think, we're talking OS/2 in 2015 and it's more than 10 replies...

    It already is blacklisted. Generic keys can be used to install, not activate. This works as there exists already a digital entitlement.

    If there was no digital entitlement the generic key would convert you to pro but you'd be un-activated. You'd then have to enter a valid key.
    That makes sense, hopefully the digital entitlement doesn't accidentally backfire and basically blacklist your digital entitlement.

    They won't blacklist that key. If you use it, but don't have a digital entitlement for Pro, Windows will install but won't activate. It's useless without a digital entitlement.
    Makes sense.

    On my ASUS G74SX-3DE Notebook that was bought in 2011 that came with Windows 7 Home Premium that was updated and currently running Windows 10 Home RTM 10240, the recovery partition is 25GB!

    That sounds like it's a Brand name computer with complete OS plus programs that come with it in the recovery partition.

    Due to partition limitations on a MBR disk..
    The OEM combined the system and recovery and even the possibility of the WinRE partitions into one large 25GB partition..

    I had problems with MB before this one, wouldn't BOOT of USB3 or react even with wired KB in it.
    The only USB 3 port I have is on my laptop. AMD A-10 APU, don't know what chip-set it has. Everything works with the stock Windows 10 drivers and I don't game on it so I haven't bothered to figure it out.

    I got it last night on both my laptop and desktop. It took over 2 hours to download and install, but seems to be working well. I did notice a big loss of hard drive space and found that it places a 20 GB "windows old" file just like the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 did. I'll either let it "go away" or deliberately delete it in a month or so.
