SSD Install On Same Machine?

Jul 29, 2015

If I want to install Win10 on a SSD do I have to first do a free upgrade install on the HDD of the same machine, then do the installation from DVD/USB to SSD? I am trying to upgrade the hardware to put the new OS on a SSD.

Installation :: Cloning Install To Different Machine After Upgrading

Aug 15, 2015

I have a few laptops, all of them are the same specs except for a few with a different GPU. All of them run the exact same software. I'm planning to upgrade them all manually to 10 first to register the machine, then create an image so in case a drive goes belly up, I'll just restore it from the image created instead of installing all the software one by one. I'm going to take one machine, sysprep it then keep a copy of that image for restoring on to the other machines.In this case would it just reactivate properly on the newly cloned machine?

Installation :: TP Latest Build Install On Empty Machine

Jul 4, 2015

Right, so I've got a laptop that I'm currently trying to install windows 10 tp onto. It's the exact same model as the one I'm running on (it's my brothers, and I'm trying to fix it for him), but I've hit a snag.

The insider program website says that you can burn the .iso to a dvd and install it like that, but I've done that, and the laptop just stalls at a windows logo screen.

There's no operating system currently installed -- all 900 someodd GB are free and, using a windows 8 install disk to access a command prompt, DISKPART says the partition is healthy. I've cleaned and formatted it several times now to no avail.

Machine Won't Start Correctly

Jan 3, 2016

Because my Windows 10 machine won't start correctly, I'd like to make a Startup Repair USB drive. Apparently, the main way to do this is from within Windows 10, but that's obviously not an option.I have access to a Windows 7 computer. If I make a Startup Repair drive there, will it work on Windows 10?
If not, can I at least use it to boot my computer and run chkdsk and sfc?Is there some website where (using my other computer) I can download the image of the Windows 10 Startup Repair, or something like that?

Can't Get Local Search Results On One Machine

Jul 31, 2015

Yesterday I upgraded two Dell laptops and my desktop machine to Windows 10.

1. Search - On my two Dell laptops if I search for, say, User Account Control, at the top of the search results I will get a local result saying Change User Account Control settings. That result will be in grey. But on my desktop machine, if I enter the same search, I don't get any grey result at the top. All I can get on that machine is web results. I don't know what's different. I have initialized Cortana on all three machines the same way (I think). Why I am not getting local results on the desktop machine?

2. One of my Dell laptops has a fingerprint reader. It was working for logins when I had Windows 7 on the machine. Now that I have Windows 10 on the machine I cannot figure out how to get the reader working again.

What are the procedure? As far as I recall, in XP time, we needed to call MS when we changed machine.

Machine Won't Stay Sleep - Keeps Waking Up

I have banned all deviced from allowing it to wake, removed it from any workgroups and a million other fixes I have seen online. Yet I can't get it to stay asleep.

After viewing logs this file: NvStreamKms.sys is set to "demand start" and the next entry is the computer waking.

Out Of Disk Space Warning In New Machine

Sep 13, 2015

Bought a 8.1 desktop last month. The store upgraded to Win10 for me. It came with a 1TB drive that now says it has 0 disk space. Something is going on. Ever since I got the first "running out the disk space" warning today, the machine has really slowed down. I opened File Explorer and sure enough, it said I had 0 space on my C drive. I cleaned up some temp files and rebooted. Now File Explorer says I have 211MB of the 1TB free instead of 0. Is this a partition issue, a Win10 upgrade bug or ?

Virtual Machine Error Keeps Appearing

Jan 3, 2016

I downloaded Deus Ex Human Revolution DC, and after beating it, I wanted to go in with a trainer and commit some wanton shenanigans. I'm a simple man like that.
However, the trainer, which worked before, has suddenly refused to work by giving me the "Sorry, this application cannot run under a Virtual Machine." prompt.
Hyper V is already off and my Antivirus is disabled + Windows Defender. It should be working no problem. Sadly, no.
How to shut off this Virtual machine or fix the problem in some way?

Customization :: Group Policy On Home Machine?

Dec 8, 2015

I have a gaming machine at home that was running W7. I upgraded to W10. It went from W7 Ultimate to W10 Pro, which is fine. Not long after that, I ran into some issues that I was unable to correct, sfc /scannow was failing, and I couldn't get DISM to read the source files correctly to execute a repair.Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

This was successful, and I thought I was on my merry way. Then after I was using it for a few minutes, it came up with a message that I didn't have an AV running. So, it pointed me to the AV control panel, but everything was greyed out. Then I went into update, and got the notorious "Some system settings are managed by your organization."I'm quite sure this is a group policy issue, but I'm confused as to why it just decided to clamp down on group policy when this machine isn't in a domain (it's in a workgroup). I then found some instructions that said to delete the GP directories and do "gpupdate /force". That didn't work either.

Installation :: Upgrade On Triple Boot Machine

Nov 14, 2015

I have a Dell XPS 9100 machine that is triple boot, Win 7 SP1 Drive on C (this is the OEM OS), and Win 8 (not 8.1) on Drive I, and Win XP SP3 on Drive D.

I would like to do a upgrade of the Win 7 SP1 Ultimate drive C to win 10 pro th2-10586. How I might do this and keep my triple boot intact?

I have been an insider since the program started and have run win 10 pro on several VM's on my win 8 OS. I also have Two Retail win 10 pro USB drives (10240) that I'm sitting on.

Would it be better to upgrade the OEM OS or do the upgrade from one of the retail USB drives and then let it update to th2-10586?

Installation :: After Upgrade Revert To W8.1 On UEFI Machine

Jun 4, 2015

Assume a computer with the UEFI firmware interface.

Assume that during or after a user has upgraded a W8.1 machine to W10 things go horribly wrong - Black screen, Blue screen, No screen. The user now tries to Boot from a USB Emergency Boot Disk that they previously created using the W8.1 utility and then they try to restore W8.1 from a System Image Backup (the one in File History) that they previously created.

Will this be possible and will the Product Key in the UEFI firmware allow a reinstall of W8.1 after a W10 upgrade...?

Networking :: IP Address Is In Use On Another Machine - Hibernate / Resume?

Dec 7, 2015

I went to see my daughter and after she resumed her computer from hibernate (it had been off for about 2 days) a message popped up saying its ip address had been detected in use by another computer.

I suspect it was my cell phone that when in range asked for an ip address and the router, thinking the hibernated laptop wasn't using that ip address any longer gave it to my cell phone. Then after her system resumed from hibernate, it continued to use the ip address it had when it hibernated.

Does windows renew its dhcp ip lease on resume? Can it tell if the lease expired?

Audio Disappears Without A Reason And Have To Restart Machine

Dec 17, 2015

My windows 10 laptop acts really weird with the the audio devices. I am using a tascam audio card for some audio editing and the internal realtek for everything else. Since i installed windows 10, the audio playback will stop whenever i am playing a game or talking on skype. It might do it or might not, but it happens everyday usually about 20 minutes of using the computer. Then, i have to restart the laptop so that everything goes back to normal. Thats it, the sound stops, and i have to restart.

I am attaching a DXDiag here.
