i have windows 10 installed and generally like it. and the only thing holding me back from using edge, is there is no extensions for it. But the problem i have is that it runs fine, but suddenly it will no longer recognize the hard drive, and even startup diagnostics cant fix it. then ill have to stick the windows 10 usb in and boot that way and once im up and running using that method, i can pull the usb and windows 10 will boot normally to my hard drive.
I just upgraded to Windows 10 as I planned to use the weekend to sort out any issues I might encounter during the upgrade. Well boy did I ever. My Seagate 3TB drive decided it no longer wanted to be recognized by Windows anymore. It shows up as a failed/deactivated drive in Disk Management as seen here: [URL] It also shows up in Speccy as a physical drive. I currently have 2TB of data on there (including an OS image I did just before the upgrade as an extra prep step), so reformatting the volume is not an option until I get the data off.
I installed W10 yesterday and now the USB ports on the right side of my laptop no longer recognize anything. I don't even get the message that the laptop knows something is plugged in. There is a USB port on the left side of the machine that is working fine, but the ones on the right are ignoring me completely.
I have installed Windows10 on a Gateway FX530 desktop PC. All has gone well with one exception. The OS seems to recognize that there is a card reader attached, I can see them through Device manager. When I insert a SD card the system completely ignores the device and will not allow me to access it. I have tried to change the drivers, without success. This card reader worked just fine with Windows 7 Pro and there was no indication that they would not work with Windows 10 when I ran the upgrade test.
I'm having an issue with my system where, while my G430 USB headset is plugged into 1 of the 3(2x2.0 and 1x3.0) USB ports on the front of my case the other 2.0 USB doesn't not seem to work or rather Windows 10 PRO won't recognize my USB key(I've used tried multiple USB keys already). I hate having to disconnect my headset every damn time I'm sitting here waiting for a file to be copied onto my USB!
System: - WINDOWS 10 PRO - R1 ZALMAN (PC case) - MAXIMUS VII RANGER (Motherboard) - I7 4770K (CPU) - KELVIN S24 FRACTAL DESIGN (CPU COOLER) - ASUS R9 270X DirectCU2 TOP 2GB (GPU) ...etc.
Ever since the transition to windows 10 the dvd drive will not recognize,read or view any disc i put in, it says please insert a disc into drive E:. However my brothers laptop can view,recognize and read the disc.
After receiving the W10 download, I installed a WD My Passport backup external drive. I made a system image backup and system repair disc of W7, and I backed up other files, and uninstalled & reinstalled BitDefender Total Security 2015. At first it seemed to run well or adequately, although slowly, notwithstanding that I had cleaned everything.
Then I discovered a message/warning from W10 that I should check the settings & do a backup, enable File History, that no usable drive was found, and to use an external drive for File History, and to connect a drive or use a network connection.
I googled all these issues to find answers/solutions: I checked in Device Manager, Computer Management, System Configuration. I was able to see that WD My Passport was displayed as running properly, with "healthy" status, with 866 GB of free space, and I could see it listed as in drive .
I think that I do not know "how to connect a drive or use a network connection." I clicked on "add network location, it opened to select a folder, I selected several, but none were acceptable, so I had to leave it the way it was, Network Location (1) My Media: Lizzie-PC.
Early on in the Windows 10 update process, I was able to upgrade an HP Stream 7 and a Stream 11 to Windows 10. Both had the same 32GB RAM and nominal 32GB eMMC as the Stream 14 I am wrestling with. Both came to a point where they told me the device had insufficient space on its C: drive. In both instances I selected an external Micro SD drive, and off it went with the upgrade.
In this instance I cannot get past that point. I select the external drive (a 320GB external USB spinner) but it doesn't accept that or any other external device I offer it.
When I click "Refresh" it says that it needs 10GB on C: drive, and eventually says that the upgrade failed.
The computer has been wiped, and reset to factory spec for W8.1 with all updates installed. It has ~20GB on C, and 7GB in another partition, so even if I find a way to remove the partition it wont be enough.
I'm about to have to give up on this thing and just make the poor user run with W8.1 until further notice, how to get past this point.
Problem: When I click on my H: drive or try to access it from the command line, it gives me an access denied error. However, all of the applications that I have installed on that drive run without issue. So, there is some access there. (See attached images. The first shows the hard drive state in diskmanager and in windows explorer. The second image shows the minecrafter launcher profile (that it is stored in H: and the application running, proving that there is some access.
System: Home built PC: (C:) 240GB SSD for OS, (E:) 1TB HDD for file storage and backup, (H:) 1TB HDD for large applications and video editing files. All drives are Simple, Basic, and none have encryption. All use the SATA connectors.
Process: I had Windows 7 Home 64 bit with, among many other things, Comodo Internet Security, Virtualbox, ImageDisk. During the upgrade process, I noticed that Windows 10, during the upgrade, ran the file system check and fix "problems" on the H: drive.
(Side note) Having forgotten to uninstall Comodo before the upgrade, I did not have network after the upgrade. The fix was non-trivial as I had to use a second computer to download the unofficial comodo uninstaller. Reboot. Uninstall the network devices. Reboot. And once Windows 10 was up and running, it reinstalled the network devices and the network was available.
Still, whether before or after the Comodo uninstall and reinstall, the uninstall of ImageDisk, or the uninstall of the Virtualbox network device, I have no access to the H: drive.
Pen Drive and external hard drive keep getting errors! So I select to fix the problem scandrive recommended scan and repair. But there's never anything wrong with them it reports! And it takes ages to scan it takes 10-15 minutes for 32GB pen drive. Windows 7 Pro done it in a flash! Anything I can do about it.
Ever since doing a fresh install of Windows 10, in "This PC", my secondary hard drive is not in the list. I have already tried right clicking "This PC" and clicking Manage -> Disk Management, but there is nothing there except my SSD with Windows 10 installed.
I have tried changing SATA cables, SATA ports, but it still does not appear in This PC. I have also tried installing my hard drive on a another computer to see if the files were corrupted. They were not, all files were still the same before the installation of Windows 10. I did not leave the hard drive plugged in during the installation.
In the BIOS, my computer recognizes both my SSD and my hard drive, but in This PC, it's still missing.
I got a 128GB Flash Drive which I proceeded to install a portable, bootable Fedora install on. Of course, naturally, since Fedora is light weight, I had all sorts of other room left over. However, when I plug the USB drive back into the main Desktop, it no longer asks me what I want to do with the USB drive, even with AutoPlay stuff disabled. It's as if the USB Drive doesn't exist.
However, I checked quickly on one of my laptops that has never seen the drive and the AutoPlay on that device immediately popped in. When I selected "view files and folders", voila, I could see the Flash Drive with a folder for the Fedora install and plenty of other open space.How can I force my computer to see this Flash Drive all over again? it's doing the same thing with the storage on my fiance's iPhone. since I can't see her phone anymore when I plug it in (even iTunes doesn't see it).
Since receiving the Win 10 Home upgrade my computer no longer recognizes the DVD drive. It doesn't show in Device Manger or in the device list in This PC although it does spin up if you insert media into it. I've tried all the suggested remedies except messing with the registry and nothing works. This is one of several problems I've had with device drivers since the upgrade.

I have had windows 10 since the beta and I recently bought a kingston 120gb ssd I want to do this by reinstalling but since I got windows 10 during the beta with no install disk I have no ability to simply reinstall but how to transfer my license.
I have two hard drive on my PC, as SSD for the OS and a HDD for all my storage.I seem to have a problem with search, that it will only find stuff that is stored on the SDD.To get it to look for other files on the HD, I have to click search my stuff, and even then it still doesn't work.Is there a way to fix this? As most of my stuff is on HD and click search my stuff is a bit annoying.Also when I click rebuild index, nothing happens. I get a dialogue box saying it will take a long time, but then it doest say its indexing
My old computer was a windows 8 that was upgraded to windows 10. I just ordered a new i5 6600 which comes with windows 10, a 250G SSD and 1 TB hard drive.. My old hard drive appears to be a Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA which seems to be the same as the one in my new Vanquish. My old hard drive is 2/3 full and is backed up often. My question is can I move this old hard drive to my new computer as a separate drive without formatting it and use the data on it (or transfer my data) or does it need to be formatted (thus giving me roughly 2 TB of space with the 1 TB provided with the computer). It was my C: drive in the old computer.
I have an HP G42-154CA that I'm trying to get Windows 10 Pro installed on.
I ran into an issue with the installation disc not detecting the hard drive (ie, no hard drive is listed when the screen appears to select the hard drive to install Windows on).
I've tried various drivers (latest from HP and Intel website, OEM OS installation discs etc) with no luck.. at the very least, the Windows 7 driver from HP's website for that laptop should work for installing Windows 7- same results, does not detect hard drive.
At this point I'm wondering if maybe it's a BIOS setting that's causing this? I don't recall changing anything in the BIOS when I last installed Windows (which was v8), but it was awhile ago, so can't be certain.
So, I currently have Windows 7 installed in a standard HDD and I bought an SSD a while ago with intentions of reinstalling windows on it. With the Windows 10 update coming in tomorrow, I was wondering if I could install the Windows 10 update on the SSD. Even if it's just installing it on the current HDD I have and then doing a clean install on an SSD. Point is, I want to know if there is any way I can have Windows 10 running on my SSD after tomorrow.
So I just got a new copy of windows 7, with a free upgrade to windows 10. And my question is. If I buy an SSD and install the new OS on that. Can I use my old hard drive for storage such as my steam library and a few applications etc even if it still has the previous OS on it? I know I'd have to set the SSD as my boot drive.
I just got an SSD for my Windows 10 PC and wanted to do a full reset of my computer. I tried using the Windows 10 "Reset this PC" feature hoping that it would install on my SSD, but it installed on my old hard drive. Is there a way I could do the reset again and have it install on my SSD or do I have to move my Windows over a different way?
