    A doddle is describing something as very easy to perform.

    As for your being against a free upgrade, you can always purchase a very clean, very fresh installation if that is your wish.
    No one was able to open apps from the start menu on an upgrade, but by installing them on the taskbar overcame the problem, you really must read M$ release notes.

    What M$ require is the ability for its millions maybe billions of clients, the ability to freely upgrade from W7 and W8.1 without installation problems, doing what you are doing is not helping sort this out, but there again you are only thinking what you want and not contributing to the cause.
    Huh?? I usually think about what I have to do with my PC for an update/upgrade first before I worry about the "cause".

    Oohhhhhhhhhh, Roger, that clarifies things greatly!
    I'm glad you agree. Now that we've got that settled perhaps we can move on. Still unresolved is the question "will a ton of hay winter a cow?"
    Seventy years ago there were two answers.......... Yes and No.
    Today I'm still not sure.........................
    damn!!!

    I'm not against the free upgrade; I will definitely go with Windows 10. That's why if I couldn't clean install the Windows 10 upgrade, although it would be inconvenient I would be sure my computers all have a very clean, very fresh installation of Windows 7 or 8.1, so that there would be no leftover nasties from the previous Windows (7 or 8.1).

    And why should I be required to put stuff on my taskbar that I don't want there just to bypass a bug/known issue?

    You are absolutely 100% wrong! You are not making the rules; Microsoft is and I am doing exactly what I agreed to do when I signed up as an Insider. It's not your call, nor is it my call to say what Microsoft requires when they have not made either of us privy to thoughts.

    When you say . . . "doing what you are doing is not helping sort this out, but there again you are only thinking what you want and not contributing to the cause", you are accusing, not only me, but everyone else in these forums who choose to clean install Windows 10 builds. Those are mighty powerful words, Podnuh!

    What you don't seem to understand is that clean installation of Betas/Technical Previews has been going on for the past 30 years or so and if Microsoft didn't want us to do that, they would have told us.

    Hmmmm, just had a thought . . . dangerous, I know, but all the same . . .

    OK, once Windows 7 or 8.1 is upgraded to Windows 10, can't I just go in and grab the ESD file and create my own ISO?

    Yehhhhhhhhh, that might work! Then I could use that to put it on the rest of my computers. Or not; depends on whether it sees 7 or 8.1.
    I would think once you do the upgrade, and get a new Windows 10 product code for that PC. Assuming you get a new product code. You could use it to do a clean install after that. I really hope Microsoft does a media creation tool for Windows 10 like the current one for Windows 8. It's all guess work at this point, just my 2 cents.

    Sorry you are having difficulty regarding my post, I will try to explain.
    Fact = "must"
    As the final release is to be free only for those computers already installed with either W7 or W8.1.
    Common sense dictates that it "must" be possible for M$ to confirm that only existing computers with the above O/S`s are eligible for an upgrade otherwise everyone no matter what O/S they had could claim a freebie.Therefore upgrading is the way to do it.

    Hypothetical. note:- "should" or "perhaps" = might = maybe.
    Media "should" still be available to purchase either through the M$ website to be downloaded, or "perhaps" DVD,s or USB memory sticks for laptops without DVD,s at computer shops, though it would not surprise me if M$ only permitted the sale of the software was only available from them.

    Only when M$ release the finished product, will they announce how to obtain the O/S.
    Exscuse me but how do you know for certain since the fact is that MS has not released any official information on the upgrade process.. has it?? If it has where is a link?? You're speculating just like everyone else here.
