Default Re: So.. How is Windows 10 going?

Hi crazyman. This is what Who Crashed told me, and they were right on the money.
It was Speecy that caused the crash. I reinstalled the W10 version of Speccy and now my PC is a happy caper and no more BSOD Give Who crashed a shot.
Gary!!

Now this is getting interesting. I tried running Speccy and it's not found but do I want to delete the shortcut?

Yeah why not?

Off I go to get the W10 version.

Hi! All I can tell you for sure is that Speccy is showing W10 with a new Key!!

Hi! I made a back up image of W10 with Macrium Relect. I suggest everyone makes a back up image of W10 while it is brand new and fresh and then another when you get all the bugs out!!
Here's screen shot. C Drive is on the left. Macrium Reflect image is on the right !

I had a problem with my ReadyCache SSD software so I tried to uninstall it and comes up with errors. Can't install new version because of it so I used Windows Disk Management to create a drive and installed ReadyBoost on it.

Now it's back to being a cache drive. It's a Sandisk 32g SSD. No problem.

Things are getting worked out little by little, so far so good.


By the way Gary, Speccy showed my Win 7 key and the W10 installation didn't ask for the key.

When you upgrade, Windows 10 uses your current key from your Win 7 or 8.1 OS.

So basically, if I want to install 10 from scratch, I should be able to input my windows 7 key during setup and it will accept it?

That's a good question. Makes me wonder.

Now that I've thought about it, I think it will ask for the older Windows disc for verification.
