    Windows 10

    I had only one small glitch with the upgrade...it uninstalled my Windows 7 version of solitaire. I reinstalled it and it has stayed installed since.

    Every upgrade (10240, 1511, 1607 and now 1703) does that. Windows 7 games are a 'deprecated feature' and will be removed whenever found. Me, I have the XP version of Solitaire (copied from an old PC). Upgrades just ignore that one.

    My two cents.
    Agreed.

    Me, too. But I keep that downloaded file on the computers to reinstall, takes just a few minutes.

    And have slow rollouts of new versions and those done for the latest hardware first.

    That's exactly what MS are doing...

    Like with the Anniversary Update we delivered last August, this update for Windows will proceed in phases. Based on our experience and feedback from our customers, we believe a phased approach provides the highest quality update experience to the broadest set of customers. The first phase will target newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners. We will then expand the Creators Update release to additional devices based on the feedback we receive during the initial phase. We’ll iterate this process over a period of several months until all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide are offered the Creators Update.

    I don't understand why so many have so many issues. Only time I have had issues is when I have done something stupid or when I have been testing out Insider Previews, which are sometimes very unstable.

    I have tested the official releases on many different computers and VMs, and no problems at all.

    What are you guys doing with your computers when you get them into a state where they can not be upgraded?
    From the outset, I'd just say I don't get my systems in a state - no 3rd party AVs, no Customised Start menu, no registry cleaners etc. I might have 7-Zip and EasyBCD and Macrium, and run a modified hosts file, use Chrome Canary, and restore Windows Photo viewer, but little else.

    I have one older laptop that runs Windows 10 fine, with the exception that it won't upgrade, and won't clean install due to lack of OEM drivers and something about Windows 10 setup on that laptop that causes the hardware to be assigned conflicting IRQs. I think it is to do with WinPE during setup and lack of Chipset drivers.

    How do I know it can run Windows 10 then?

    Initially the laptop was running XP and Windows 7 Ultimate in dual boot.

    The Windows 7 failed to upgrade to 1507, so I left it for a few months and tried 1511, which caused a Frankenstein's horror of a protracted overnight installation and then problems with setting up a user because it was running sooo slowly due to the above IRQ assignment problems. Eventually, and extremely slowly, I disabled some hardware in device manager and the system ran, but with the defaultuser0 profile as the main user, and no administrator access, I returned it to Windows 7 from a backup. It had however, I discovered later, assigned a digital licence to the laptop.

    Then I discovered the laptop runs a portable Windows 10 Pro as a Windows to Go installation on a USB drive, so it is not the hardware that is a problem, at least as far as running Windows 10 is concerned.

    If I use the same logic as a Windows to Go installation, if I avoid Setup, and apply the Windows image to a clean partition on the hard drive from install.wim (or install.esd) using DISM or preferably Imagex, Windows 10 completes the OOBE, I can set up a user, find some older drivers for the chipset and more esoteric hardware, and adjust the basic graphics driver to get a reasonable result on the unsupported Intel integrated graphics.

    The next thing to try is to transfer the disk image of this to another machine, upgrade the OS build to the latest Feature update, and transfer it back to the laptop, having wiped the old system off.

    I'll be interested to see how that goes.
