    I am personally unable to get Windows 10 installed as it gets stuck at Installing features and drivers for me even when I completely disable everything in the bios that might be hanging it up.

    did you download it with the tool, or did you upgrade? Was your previous windows up to date?

    Had a few spontaneous reboots. driver problems, or memory problems. Still runs fine, just wait and see when everybody is up to speed with drivers.

    I upgraded to Windows 10 and back to Win 7 five times before getting it right. I don't know if it's allowed but warning... do not use Regservo or pro in Win 10. Do not use any Auslogics program except the latest Boostspead 8. CCcleaner works fine at least the latest update which I used. The Start menu looks like one of my grandkids tablet and you cannot tell Win 10 to notify you of updates, it just downloads and installs then reboots unless you set a time for rebooting! Drives me crazy trying to make sense of what is going on. Oh, Icewind Dale 1 runs fine so does NWN1 and 2. Haven't tried anything else. Anybody else updated yet?

    Since the free upgrade's end date is looming on the horizon I've decided to bite the bullet and go ahead with the upgrade from 8.1 to 10, fully expecting to encounter any of the possible horror story scenarios that I've heard about... only to find the entire upgrade done in about 35 minutes without a hitch. The only thing that I've noticed not working post-upgrade so far was the sound, but W10 automatically updated the drivers for it within minutes.

    Whoa. :jawdrop:
