    Windows 10 does away with the reinstallation headaches


    How many times has this happened to you? You’re forced to “refresh” Windows with a clean install—and then you wait, and wait, and wait while numerous updates download, install, and bring your PC up to date.

    Good news, according to Microsoft—that nightmare is over.

    Microsoft said Monday that Windows 10's installation process will offer improvements over Windows 8 in two ways: If the PC can support it, Windows 10 installs in a compressed state, saving a small but important amount of disk space. And even more significantly, if you do need to reinstall, Windows 10 recovers using runtime system files that builds the new operating system from files that are already in place. And you can create your own recovery disk!

    Interesting.. what if you have a hardware failure that makes you re-install the OS.. can you use this restore file?? I know.. no idea yet but just wondering out loud.

    Sounds like a good idea. Hope it works like MS wants it too.

    You can do the same in 8.1 when you create your custom refresh image.

    But with 10 you don't need to create a custom image, it does it internally or externally from the Cloud like Groze said. Naturally you'd need an image if the system wouldn't boot up at all, just like 8.1 or any OS really.

    Never. . .
    Never say never, everyone said Microsoft wouldn't be able to get an OS to run on all the different devices, yet here we are nearly there.
