    Windows 10 Pro

    Ahh, OK, M4v3r1ck. Since this was a thread about licensing that's what a couple of us thought you were referring to.

    1. We do clean installs because we like things....well....clean. In my case I do a lot of modifications on my phone's software so I tend to build up a lot of old software relating to that. Every now and then it's nice to just sweep all the clutter into one image file and start over.

    2. That I can understand. Especially since you have upgraded once and have gotten (I assume) a Windows 10 activation, which is supposed to remain valid unless you change a major component. Not only will Windows 10 likely improve, but software companies will start upgrading their software to work better with it as well.

    Win 10 Pro x64 1607 (Build 14393.953)

    Sorry for posting in a wrong thread.

    I ported Windows 8 from a Mac Pro 3.1 to a Mac Pro 5.1. Due to changed hardware I called the MS helpdesk and they kindly gave me a new key. Updated to Windows 8.1 for the Windows 10 upgrade.

    The upgrade to Windows 10 was a big fail for my system. I have to find a way to install Windows 10, but keeping all my apps.

    Windows 10 was activated when I installed it, so no worries about that!

    Cheers

    You might try updating your upgraded 10 with windows 10. It will keep your apps and settings, but reinstall Windows 10.

    I had to install fresh after the update it was such a mess. Wish I would have though of this then. I have since done it to fix update issues and it worked pretty well.

    Thanks!

    The problem I had was that my programs directories were emptied by the upgrade, so I don't think a reinstall of Windows 10 will bring back the apps. Best thing I can think of is to start all over again upgrading my Windows 8.1 partition. I have a solid Winclone backup scheme so I can try many times.

    Wow, what a hassle this is!!!
